Panic Stations along The Bi-Polar Express
….. continues the roller-coaster ride of mania, depression, panic and anxiety with mother and daughter.
Panic Stations – Natasha’s Ride
From a break-down to a break-up.
From the city to the mountains.
From mental illness to physical ailments.
From friend to friend.
From hospital to hospital.
From dreaming of death to loving life and back again.
From moments of sheer panic to moments of pure joy.
From snow to fire.
From hope to despair.
From book 1 to book 2.
From dreading change to embracing it.
From there to here to now.
Panic Stations – Ela’s Ride
Finally we have the correct diagnosis for our ‘different’ daughter, but this is not enough to stop the Bi-Polar roller-coaster. I am still along for the ride as we navigate through drugs, medications, boyfriends, girlfriends, holidays, mania, depression, panic, anxiety, doctors, hospitals, stress, emotional landmines and physical complications. Belatedly I discover a few home truths about myself.
Panic Stations along the Bi-Polar Express is a powerful, informative and memorable book about family relationships and mental illness that compelled me to read as well as inform me from beginning to end. Panic Stations along the Bi-Polar Express is a book I was happy to read as I adored the first book from the author duo, Natasha & Ela Simon. A part of me was worried this book would not live up to the first, however as soon as I got started, I knew right away it would thanks to its raw honesty from the get-go, incredible writing and infectious personality from both Natasha and Ela.
Panic Stations along the Bi-Polar Express is the sensational second book from Natasha & Ela Simon that will follow the mother and daughter on their continued journey through bipolar disorder. In the previous book, The Bi-Polar Express, the reader learned about Natasha’s ups and downs and how her mom struggled to find the correct diagnosis for her.
However, in book two the reader will learn that finally, they found the correct diagnosis for Natasha which brings some peace of mind, however, Ela is poignant in her section of the book, saying that this does not stop the ups and downs, the endless medications and manic behavior. The result is a poignant, moving and informative book that explores bipolar disorder from someone who is directly affected by it (Natasha) but also the effects on close family members (Ela) and this book lovers is the premise of the phenomenal Panic Stations along the Bi-Polar Express!
Panic Stations along the Bi-Polar Express is an incredible book for many reasons but one of them is that the knowledge and wisdom courtesy of the authors, laced throughout the book is incredible. They hold nothing back in Panic Stations along the Bi-Polar Express and the result is an honest and poignant book that gives you a first-person account of mental illness, which will not only inform you but also be able to help you, especially as you know somebody that has a mental illness or have one yourself.
Both authors of this book, Natasha & Ela Simon are incredible. I admire this mother and daughter duo for opening up and sharing all the highs and lows and I admire them too for their flawless writing! Many books of this nature are written in an impersonal way but because this book is written by two people, that are both affected by mental illness in different ways, it makes it much more personal and the reader will feel as if the authors are speaking to them. That was really refreshing to me and one of the many qualities I loved about Panic Stations along the Bi-Polar Express.
Overall Panic Stations along the Bi-Polar Express is an incredible, enlightening and informative book that will delight, entertain and can help many readers and so I have to award this stellar book five stars!
