Bipolar disorder is a lottery.

Sometimes you hit a good day, sometimes you’re wading through muck. But most of the time you’re walking a straight line that you think will never end.

Jaka Tomc was declared bipolar in 2008 and was hospitalized and treated in Psychiatric Clinic Ljubljana ten times between 2007 and 2015. He no longer fights with his condition. They live in a kind of symbiosis. The disorder took a lot from him but also gave him plenty of knowledge and experience.

This book is a result of years of struggle, unbearable falls to the bottom, and climbs to divine highs of mania. It isn’t a manual. It’s a story about a man, coping with what is considered an incurable and very dangerous disease.
