Dyane Harwood Hi everyone!

My name is Dyane Harwood and I have bipolar one disorder that was triggered by childbirth, a.k.a. postpartum bipolar. My bipolar depression was treatment-resistant for many years.

I'm the author of the memoir "Birth of a New Brain—Healing from Postpartum Bipolar Disorder" with a foreword by psychiatrist Dr. Carol Henshaw. My book contains an extensive resource section and an appendix that shares tools (both allopathic & holistic) that have helped me.

I'm offering a free PDF file of my book to our group members.

I'm honored my book has received positive reviews from readers with bipolar, anxiety, and other mood disorders. "Birth of a New Brain" has been endorsed by Kay Redfield Jamison, bestselling author of "An Unquiet Mind," and by twenty other mental health luminaries.

If you'd like your PDF copy please email me at: dyaneleshinharwood@gmail.com or message me privately.

Take care, and special thanks to group moderator Diana for allowing me to post this!

Dyane Harwood Thanks, so much, A.R.!

My book sold well but my publisher hardly did any P.R. and that was a great disappointment.
I want my book to reach more people and it makes me happy to give it to anyone who wants to read it.

As you can see, I didn't write "Birth of a New Brain" for the money, although I won't turn any cash away.

I took a quick peek at your profile and as a dog mom, I loved what you wrote: "
Don't mind the dog hair; it's everywhere." That pretty much sums it up at my house. Later on I'll visit your website - it looks very cool.

I'm also a vegan. I'm writing about veganism in my next book but it's not a cookbook!
(I'm a wannabe cook who never cooks, plus I'm married to a former chef so a cookbook is never going to happen.)

Sorry to ramble. Hope you're having a good day!!

Take care,
Dyane
