Description More Than A Bandaid begins with the author's birth and life amidst a dysfunctional family. She had her first major depressive episode at age 19, and her second at age 35, when she was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder in 1991. The book follows her life as she rides the rollercoaster of mental illness and discovers new and different diagnoses along the way. The illnesses were deeper than anything one could slap a Band Aid on, and her faith and determination bring her through to a better place in life. This book is about hope.
