Many books and authors come to mind. 'Electro Boy', Patty Duke's books. Margot Kidder has become an advocate for bipolars but don't think she's written a book yet. Carrie Fisher is working on one about her long-term bipolar illness. 'The Rooms of Heaven' is a great one, but don't have the author. Virginia Woolf, Ernest Hemingway, Emily Dickinson, Edgar Allen Poe, Sylvia Plath, many more.

The Pfeiffer Treatment Center accepts patients like any other treatment facility. You fill out a questionnaire, are contacted by the staff, make an appointment, pay your money and get your tests and treatment plan. It specializes in uncovering the underlying causes for mood and behavioral disorders and has had success with autism and ADHD. My friend's ADHD son has been helped tremendously by them. I've held off cause it'll probably be about $2k after all is said and done and I'm tired of chasing this thing and being dissapointed with 'cures'. But I'm definitely considering it cause it seems they're on to something. Here's their website:

Been following recent research and it's quite fascinating. Too much to go into here and now, but there's some real progress being made in identifying the why's of bipolar. One interesting factoid is that one of a gene mutation is very similar to the gene sequence possibly involved in schizophrenia. Another is a possible similarity with MS since there seems to be a malfunction with the myelin sheath of the axons like in MS. It's good that there is research going on instead of relegating us to the back 40. Here's a short article on methylation which is getting to be a buzz word in bipolar studies. It also refers to the Pfeiffer Center:
