PRLog - Jan. 30, 2012 - LAS CRUCES, N.M. -- New Mexico Doctor And Author Announces His Book Of Letters As A Doctor Suffering From Bipolar Disorder

Author, Benjamin Diven, M.D. is pleased to announce his book, Closing the Chasm: Letters from a Bipolar Physician to His Son. Closing the Chasm is a collection of letters written to Dr. Diven’s eldest son, Matt, that each portray an event or events or a discussion of events. Just the right length for a non-fictional work the letters make it an easy book to pick up for a few minutes but a difficult book to put down.

What would it be like to be a physician with a major mental illness? Having all the challenges of medical practice complicated by moods that swung from high to low and back again. What if they were also struggling to be a husband and a father?

In this engaging and at times intimate look into life with bipolar disorder Dr. Diven offers insights into symptoms and problems living with this mental illness.

There are discussions of family life and near suicide, medications and therapy, and complications and successes. Sometimes comical and often serious vignettes of common experiences with other bipolar patients are explored or explained. Written in the form of letters to his eldest child the story is warmly personal while adding a professional's insight.

The author says, “This is an excellent reading for anyone interested in a fascinating biography. It’s an engaging, enlightening, and readable story of a person with bipolar disorder taken from high school to adulthood.”

This book also serves as an open look into manic-depressive illness for persons with similar struggles or the loved ones of a mentally ill person.
