Derailed on the Bipolar Express


By Joie Edson

“Derailed on the Bipolar Express” chronicles the difficult journey a mother travels once her two sons are diagnosed with bipolar disorder and substance abuse at ages 17 and 19. Ms. Edson candidly recalls manic and psychotic episodes, including a notable arrest of one son on the Boston Marathon finish line.

 You will be transported into the world of mental illness and will be riveted by the graphic yet poignant moments the author reveals, including multiple psychiatric hospitalizations and incarceration. 

 From her sons’ initial diagnosis of bipolar disorder and substance abuse as teenagers, Ms. Edson graphically describes her sons’ psychotic and manic episodes, their struggles with prescription mood stabilizers, and her vigilant battle to advocate for their assistance. The author compassionately chronicles her sons’ battles while offering hope, realistic advice, and optimism to other parents or family members who may be experiencing similar challenges.
