What is that (FLB) funny-looking bird? Is it a rooster? Is it a goose? Is it a duck? An eagle? C’est la vie, whatever will be will be. It is a bio-epigenetic outlier, and with the right structure support and stroking, it will manifest its alpha one destiny. Be him/her animal or human, like Sea Biscuit the horse, Balto the sled dog, Rudolf the reindeer, Gus the polar bear, Elsa the Lion, or King David, Beethoven, Lincoln, Churchill, Poe, Goethe—a successful outcome is achieved. This book is about real people professionally diagnosed with bipolar disorder who had the “right stuff” and the right people at the right time to manifest over time an alpha one mission oriented personality at the top. All individuals with mood swings had mood swings at one time. Some people with mood swings still have mood swings sometimes. No individual with mood swings has mood swings all the time. Individuals who do not have mood swings at anytime. In the treatment of bipolar disorder, “one size does not fit all.” There must be variations on that theme customized to adapt to changing seasons, ages, and environments. Successful treatment outcome is based on a checklist structure. There are no two snowflakes or butterflies alike. There are no identical twins alike, and there are no two bipolar personalities alike. Read the true life stories of the bipolar patients and their families who, for more than forty years, contributed to the research done in this book.

Fuckin’ Poetry: Haiku for the Bipolar is a look into the mind of one average man and his struggle with bipolar disorder. The author originally chose to write poetry in the form of haiku, as a therapeutic method of dealing with his disorder. However, the author found himself in the middle of Axis I teetering between moments of mania, depression and anxiety. As one will see, the author’s journey begins with a reflection upon family and leading into a spiraling life and death struggle of losing friends to drugs and suicide. The author deals with the stigmata of bipolar disorder and stamped 296 (the beginning of the DSM diagnostic codes for bipolar disorder) by trying to embrace the world around him and telling it to “fuck off” at the same time. The author chooses to write about his experiences as impressionist painting of a life in hope that others with this will overcome their fears in others to find their own form of art as a means of articulating to the outside world what is bottled up inside. In a world where one foot is always hanging over the edge, the author hopes that Fuckin’ Poetry will help others find a way to cope with their disorder.
