The true story of one man’s battle with bipolar disorder
‘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.’
“Raw and real.” – Trey Stone
Jaka Tomc was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2008 and was hospitalized and treated for his condition ten times between 2007 and 2015. At one of his lowest points when he was considered a danger to himself and others he was strapped to a hospital bed for eleven days straight.
Today, he no longer fights his condition. They live in a kind of symbiosis. The disorder has taken a lot from him but also has given him valuable knowledge and experience. From unbearable falls to rock bottom to soaring divine highs of mania, Stop This Game is the result of years of struggles and the true story about a man coping with what is considered a very dangerous and incurable disease.
“A book of hope.” – Renato Bratkovič
Stop This Game will give readers the courage to take control of their lives and live confidently in the face of bipolar disorder. Through Jaka’s sharing of his own moving personal account and accompanying doctors’ notes the book gives an in-depth look into what it is like to manage a chronic mental illness on a daily basis.
Raw, intimate and enlightening, Stop This Game is a must-read for anyone who has bipolar disorder or knows someone who does and wants to better understand what it is like to be bipolar.
