Bipolar Disorder Does Not Have to Be a Life Sentence. Your Loved One CAN Still Be a Happy, Stable, Calm, Successful and Productive Member of Society

From: David Oliver

Re.: Helping your loved one cope with bipolar disorder

Dear Fellow Bipolar Supporter,

If you're supporting a spouse, partner, parent, or other loved one who has bipolar disorder, this will be the most important website you've ever found.

Because I'm going to reveal exactly how you can get a full arsenal of proven coping strategies and techniques to help you deal with your loved one's bipolar disorder AND to help your loved one successfully live with the disorder.

This is information your doctors can't (or won't) give you. Information you won't find at the library or bookstore. And information you desperately need if you want your loved one to finally enjoy a "normal" life and do all the things you take for granted, like:

  • Make and keep friends
  • Hold down a steady-paying job
  • Get along well with friends and neighbors
  • Treat you and other family members with respect and love
  • Enjoy an active social life
  • Act like a responsible, independent adult
  • Take good care of themselves
  • Pay all bills in full and on time
  • Use credit cards responsibly
  • Be able to arrange and pay for their basic needs

I know you want your loved one to achieve those dreams. But right now, they seem out of reach, don't they?

Believe me, I know. Because two years ago,
I was standing in your shoes.

I was typing the phrase "bipolar disorder" into every search engine on the Internet just hoping to find a magic solution that would end my nightmare.

I read through website after website trying to track down answers. I searched for reasons, guidance, even just someone to talk to. All I found was the same old rehashed information on bipolar disorder . nothing useful. And certainly nothing that told me how to help a loved one cope with bipolar.

It was incredibly frustrating. I was literally at the end of my rope . because every day seemed like one long, never-ending bad dream that I couldn't wake up from.

You see, my mother, who has had bipolar disorder since she was born, was in the middle of a major bipolar episode . probably the worst she had ever experienced. And I had stepped in to be her primary supporter. All the days of abuse, yelling, and screaming had taken their toll on me (the same feeling you've probably had with taking care of your loved one - the stress is incredible, isn't it?).

The Internet was just the start for me. I devoured everything I could find at the library, including boring, technical medical journals and dozens of books. I tracked down every bipolar expert I could find, in all disciplines . from physician, to therapist, to pharmacist and beyond. And during my 8-month journey, I went from knowing nothing about her disorder and having NO idea how to help her . to becoming an expert who has been able to help her stay stable.

And after my months of research . I can tell you one thing for sure: if you're supporting a loved one with bipolar, you have a better chance of winning one of those multi-state lotteries than of finding the information you need to help your loved one SUCCESSFULLY cope with bipolar.

Why? Because nearly all of the information that's available is produced by doctors and professors who have a clinical relationship with bipolar disorder - NOT by people who are living with the disorder day in and day out.

But you don't need cold, clinical theories from physicians who spent a few hours a day tending patients with bipolar. You need coping strategies that work . from people who walked in your shoes day in, day out.

Here's the second thing I can tell you for sure: if you don't get your hands on proven coping strategies - and soon - your loved one may end up permanently unemployed . addicted to drugs . sexually promiscuous . homeless . and even suicidal.

Want proof? Let me tell you how my family has been affected by my mom's long struggle with bipolar.

Years Of Ignoring My Mother's Illness

During most of my life, my family didn't talk about my mother's illness. We didn't plan what to do if she went into another episode. We didn't talk to her doctor. We didn't educate ourselves about the illness. We simply pretended like it didn't exist.

In fact, no one in my house, not even me, used the word "bipolar" for the last 28 years.

When my mom went into an episode, we just sat back and hoped that she'd either get over it on her own or that her doctor would make it all better.

It Started Late One Spring

Near the end of spring two years ago, I started to notice that my mom was acting different. I could see changes in her, but I didn't say anything about it because we didn't talk about my mom's illness. Slowly, those changes became more obvious.

In November, my mom was really bad. She was yelling, screaming, and getting incredibly mad at everyone who came near her. After a little investigating, I found out that she was also missing days of work.

Even without talking about it, I knew that she was sick again. She was in a major "episode." And it was getting worse, not better.

The Mother Of All Episodes

My mother has had four major episodes. Those are the kind of episodes where she has to be hospitalized for more than 10 days. Based on my calculations, that was one major episode every 7 years or so.

This time wasn't like those episodes; it was much worse.

My mother had turned into a completely different person. She wouldn't eat or sleep. She only yelled, screamed, and said extremely hurtful things to my father and me. Since my brother doesn't like to deal with the problem, he never made himself available, if you know what I mean.

For about a month, my mom was on this rampage. She missed many days of work and finally stopped going altogether. Even then, she would call her job at least 6 to 8 times a day. She would also call family members and friends just to say mean things to them. I can't tell you how many people she alienated in just that short period of time.

The Lies Started

If that wasn't bad enough, my mom then started to make things up. She would tell people that I said this or that my dad had said that when in reality, we hadn't said anything of the sort. She'd tell me that other people had told her things which I found out was completely not true.

It was so bad that we couldn't tell when she was telling the truth or telling a lie.

I Got Fed Up

One day after she screamed at me for about an hour, I started to get really mad (but not mad at her, though).

I was mad that I didn't know what was wrong with her.

I was mad that it didn't seem like anything could help her.

I was mad that no one in my family was doing anything except pretending the problem would fix itself.

And I was mad that I didn't have any information. I didn't even know the correct name for what she had. My family had always just called it "manic depression," even though that term hadn't been used in years.

I Decided It Was Time For My Mother To Go The Hospital

I finally decided that she needed to go to the hospital. Of course, she refused. She screamed that she was fine. She told me that I needed to go to the hospital, not her. She insisted that all of her "supporters" said she would get better at home. She called me a "terrible son" and demanded that I "get out" of her life "forever."

And that was just the beginning. She continued to swear at me and to throw everything she could get her hands on at me. She repeatedly demanded that I leave the house and leave her alone because she never wanted to see me again.

For the next four weeks, my mom continued to stay in the house instead of going to the hospital. Initially, I thought about following my brother's lead and pretending that there was no problem. I could just close my eyes, cross my fingers, and hope that everything would work itself out.

But I couldn't do that. You see, my dad has quite a few health problems, including congestive heart failure, diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. I was worried that my mom's screaming would cause him to eventually have a heart attack.

To protect my dad's health, I spoke to my mom every morning so that she could scream and yell at me for at least an hour. EVERY DAY for 4 straight weeks she screamed at me every morning and again when I called her at night. For about two hours a day, I let her scream at me so I could divert at least some of her anger away from my dad.

The Doctor Didn't Have A Clue

After searching for awhile, I was able to find the name of my mom's doctor. We'd never talked to him or about him, so we'd also never learned his name or his number (which was one of my family's big mistakes).

When I did talk to the doctor, he didn't have a clue. He didn't know that my mom was "that bad." He said that he was trying to regulate her medicine, and I asked, "How are you going to know when her medicine was right?"

Do you know what he said? He said, "I'll ask her."

Can you imagine asking a mentally ill person to determine whether or not their medication is effective? He was a moron!

I asked him many other questions, too, but he didn't have any answers. He couldn't give me one single answer!

He made me so angry that I finally said, "Let's start over again and let me ask you some warm up questions like "What's your name?" and "What state do you live in?'"

Of course that made him mad, but it also made me realize that he was part of the problem, not part of the solution.

I Went To The Library

Since her doctor didn't know anything, I decided to visit a large library in my area to find some answers. When I went in, I felt nervous about asking the reference librarian for help finding information on "manic depression." I was convinced she was going to run from me or give me some weird look because I truly thought that people frowned on any discussion of mental illness.

Thankfully, I was wrong. Everyone in the library was very helpful. That wasn't the problem.

The problem was that there weren't very many books on manic depression or bipolar disorder. There were zillions of books on weight loss, gardening, cooking, and living with other health problems but there were no books on how to cope with someone who has bipolar disorder.

The books I did find spend most of the time talking about why people have bipolar disorder, but they never talked about the kinds of issues I was facing with my mom... such as how to get someone into treatment, how to get them out of debt, how to prevent them from losing their job, etc.

Plus, most of the books about bipolar disorder were too technical to be easily understood or were written by bipolar people for bipolar people. Neither type of book was helpful to me, so there was a huge gap in the knowledge base.

That's why I started finding other sources of information. I read articles, college textbooks, and similar materials. Plus, I started finding support groups.

After about 20 days of MASSIVE research, I finally could say that I had a handle on the situation and could identify most of the mistakes my family had made during the last 30 years.

However, I didn't stop there. Over the next few months, I started interviewing doctors, therapists, hospital workers, social workers, and individuals that have bipolar. I attended support groups and started compiling information, making notes, and creating checklists. As I was doing all of this, my main goal was to NEVER repeat what was happening to my mom.

I Decided To Learn Everything There Was To Know

After that, I took off 6 months from work in order to drive all over my state on a quest to learn everything that I could about bipolar disorder. I attended support groups and interviewed people. I spent and lost an incredible amount of money because I had to pay most of these people to talk to me and because I wasn't able to attend to my own business.

All of my research was worth it. Here's how it's helped my mom:

Mom before I did my research
  • Wouldn't admit she had a disorder
  • Massive debt
  • Bad doctor
  • No therapist
  • Medicine not working
  • Threatening debt collectors
  • No plan if she gets sick
  • Little cooperation
  • Lost 15 jobs in 10 years
Mom today after a lot of research
  • Admits she has the disorder
  • Debt under control
  • Great doctor
  • Great therapist
  • Medicine working
  • NO debt collection calls
  • Detailed plan if she gets sick again
  • Full cooperation
  • Great job that's flexible and stress free

The difference this information has made in my life and in my family's life has been amazing. Helping my mom is so much easier these days. I only wish I had found all of this out years ago.

Although my story has a positive ending, I met many people during my research whose stories were not ending well. So many of them were desperate to find some answers that would help their loved one, but they didn't have the time, money and energy to do the same amount of massive research I had undertaken. They were struggling to make it through each day, constantly sick with worry that something horrible would happen to their loved one before the bipolar was brought under control.

Which of These Questions Are You Desperate to Answer?

They were struggling to answer questions like:

  • "What is bipolar disorder exactly . and did I do something that caused this?"
     
  • "Why has it been so hard to get an accurate diagnosis?"
     
  • "How do I find a good doctor and therapist?"
     
  • "What are the treatment options for bipolar disorder . and which will work best?"
     
  • "Does my loved one really need to be medicated for bipolar?"
     
  • "How can I make sure my loved one is taking all prescribed medications?"
     
  • "Our medical bills are skyrocketing - how will we ever be able to manage these costs?"
     
  • "Will my loved one ever be able to hold down a job?"
     
  • "What are the signs that bipolar episode is coming on . and is there anything I can do to head it off?"
     
  • "How do I know if my loved one really belongs in a residential treatment program?"
     
  • "Who will take care of my loved one if I die?"
     
  • "How can I convince my loved one that they have to go to all doctor's appointments?"
     
  • "How can I help my loved one make and keep friends?"
     
  • "What can I do to handle the stress of being a supporter?"
     
  • "Is there anything I can do now to help my loved one regain some independence?

I know how much pain can result from not having answers or solutions . and how much damage bipolar disorder can do to a family that's never had the right information before.

With the information I learned, I would be able to help other families overcome, and even prevent, the tremendous obstacles my mother has had to conquer.

How My Pain Will Be Your Gain

Even after that six months was over, I kept going to support groups and talking to people who had bipolar disorder. When they heard that I had done all of this research and that I was helping my mom, they started asking for my help, too. So I did. Some of them even suggested that I write a book because they knew, like I did, that there simply wasn't enough good information out there.

One of my friends finally said, "Dave, don't you think it's your duty to share what you know with other people so they don't have to suffer like you did?"

That made me think. The truth is I would have done ANYTHING when I was first dealing with my mom's episode to get all of the information I have now. If I could have had everything in some type of course or book or audio tape, then things would have been so much easier for me, my dad... even my mom.

Introducing The Bipolar Supporter's Course

That's why I put together The Bipolar Supporter's Course, which is filled with all of the tips, tricks, and secrets that you can use to support loved ones who are battling bipolar disorder.

Once I got started, I realized that the same information may not be right for everyone. And because I want to help as many people as possible, I created two versions of the The Bipolar Supporter's Course.

Let's talk about each of these versions and how they can help you. That way you can pick the one that best suits your family's needs and budget.

Option #1: The Basic Bipolar Supporter's Course

The Basic Edition comes with a number of items that will help you to better help your loved one and your family cope with bipolar disorder. The core of the basic course is The Bipolar Supporter's Manual.

This 168-page resource is bursting with the tips, smart strategies and answers you've been seeking . including ways to effectively deal with two of the most frustrating - and chronic - challenges you face as a bipolar supporter:

  • Dealing with your loved one's manic episodes. Depressive episodes are far easier to deal with, because your loved one typically recognizes that things are right . and it's not much fun being depressed. People in the grips of a manic episodes, however, feel on top of the world. They don't recognize that they're sick, which makes it difficult to get them to cooperate with you. Plus they tend to be much more argumentative, irrational, impulsive, and oblivious to the risks and consequences of their actions.
  • Getting your loved one to follow their treatment plan. There are dozens of reasons why people with bipolar disorder don't want treatment . ranging from the fact that they don't feel sick . to their desire not to be "dulled" by medication. Or you might find that your loved one will initially follow a treatment plan, but then will go off medication once they feel better.

The Bipolar Supporter's Course is chock full of proven techniques to help you navigate these and other challenges with ease. Take a look for yourself:

How To Talk To Your Loved One About Bipolar Disorder

One of the hardest things you'll have to do is talk to your loved one about his/her illness. In this special chapter, you'll discover the best way to have this discussion - and how to share the information you've learned in The Bipolar Supporter's Course without making him or her angry. Believe me, you MUST read this report before you talk to your loved one about bipolar disorder.

When you select The Bipolar Supporter's Manual - Basic Edition, you'll receive these additional resources:

Basic Resource #1 - How To Talk To Your Loved One's Doctor Or Therapist When They Won't Let You (Special Report)

One obstacle you may face when supporting your loved ones is that in the United States and many other countries, doctors can not speak to you about their patient without a signed medical release waiver. This requirement can make your job of supporting a loved one with bipolar very difficult.

In this amazing report, I'll show you an incredible way to communicate with your loved one's doctor - even if you can't get a signed waiver. Don't worry, you're not going to do anything that would get you or your loved one's doctor into trouble. You'll just be taking advantage of a slight legal loophole that ensures you can get the necessary information to and from your loved one's doctor even before your loved one gives permission. This is especially helpful if you are taking on the support role while they are in the middle of an episode.

Basic Resource #2 - How to Get Your Loved One to the Doctor or Hospital (Mini-Course)

In this mini-course, you learn the answer to one of the most difficult aspects of supporting someone who has bipolar disorder: How to get a loved one to the hospital or doctor . even when he/she is not suicidal, not causing harm to themselves or others, or not extremely violent.

You see, if your loved one is exhibiting any of those behaviors, you can have them hospitalized involuntarily. But most bipolar people never meet those criteria, so you can't force them to see a doctor, go to the hospital, or get the help they need.

To enable you to get your loved one the help they need, I used more than just my own experience and the experiences of hundreds of other people that I've interviewed. I also tracked down a woman who is the head of a mental health service that evaluates individuals and persuades them to get treatment.

When I met with her, I was able to record our hour-long interview. This interview is incredible because you'll learn from someone who does this every day and who is trained to help the mentally ill get the treatment they need. I picked up dozens of useful tips during the interview (all of which worked, by the way) . and you will, too.

You'll receive that interview and a complete report as part of this mini-course, which teaches you all of the following:

  • What your options are besides involuntary commitment
     
  • 21 ways that you can get a loved one into treatment without using involuntary commitment
     
  • A magical form that you can use to avoid having to involuntarily commit someone
     
  • People who are in your local area that can help you get a loved one into treatment
     
  • Questions you need to ask someone who has bipolar disorder
     
  • The absolute worst things to say to someone with bipolar disorder when they are in an episode
     
  • How to avoid confrontations that lead to violence
     
  • The shocking truth about what it takes to get someone into treatment that doesn't want to go and can't be involuntarily committed
     
  • How I was able to get my mom into treatment when all else failed
     
  • A toll free 800 number you can call for help and assistance.
     
  • What the HIPAA law is and why it can make your life a nightmare unless you know this one simple trick
     
  • The top ways that people used to get people into the hospital that no book or support group ever mentions
     
  • Why calling the police about a loved one's episode could be deadly to them unless you do this
     
  • What you need to know about suicide and bipolar episodes

...and much, much more!

Basic Resource #3 - Planning Worksheets

To make it easier to stay on track and remain stable, I've created 12 detailed worksheets to help you gather and organize your thoughts, plans and information. These are the same worksheets I used and gave to my mom to help in her recovery. They worked for her and now they'll work for you!

Basic Resource #4 - Checklists

I'm a huge believer in checklists, so you are going to get a lot of them. Like the worksheets, these are great tools that will help you stay on track with what you have to do to help maintain your loved one's stability.

The guide includes a complete listing of all the resources I've found most valuable or that have been highly recommended to me by people I trust. Once you get this directory, I urge you to read through it once with a yellow highlighter in hand . so you can mark the resources that are the most important to you and your family.

TOTAL VALUE $336.00 $1,396.00

. . . But you do NOT need to invest $326 OR even $1396 . . .

You get more than $1,300 worth of practical resources that are crammed full of techniques that have been proven to help people successfully live with bipolar disorder.

These are techniques that I painstakingly researched and tested during the six-month sabbatical I took from my job to help my mother recover from a major bipolar episode. I spent more than $3,200 out of pocket to find and interview experts, research the techniques and figure out what actually works in real life - not to mention absorbing a more than $55,000 loss of income because my mother required care 24/7.

I know that most families don't have the luxury of having one person that is devoted to full-time, around-the-clock care of a loved one with bipolar disorder . much less spend more than $3,000 and six months researching the best treatment and coping options available. Because I'm committed to helping other families avoid the painful struggles, stress and frustration that my family experienced, I'm also committed to keeping the price of The Bipolar Supporter's Course low enough for every family to afford.

That's why the Master's Version of The Bipolar Supporter's Course - which delivers a full retail value of $1,396 - is priced at a very affordable $199.95 (plus S&H). That's just 68 cents a day for a year - probably less than a penny a day when you consider that these are techniques you'll be using the rest of your life.

Surely you can afford to invest 68 cents a day for the health, well-being and success of your loved one, can't you?

After all, that's less than you pay for your daily cup of coffee, bottle of water, or can of soda. For a gallon of gas. For a long-distance phone call. Maybe even for tolls on your commute to work.

The basic version of The Bipolar Supporter's Course is even more economical at just $99.95. (The drawback, of course, is that you don't get nearly the same volume of top-quality resources as you receive with the master's version.)

The bottom line is that you can .

Spend less than a quarter a day . and still get access to this wealth of information.

Here's another way to tell which version of the course makes the most sense for you: Think about all of the time and money you've spent on doctor visits and therapy appointments so far . and now tally up the number of effective coping strategies you've learned at those appointments.

I'm willing to guess that it'll take you at least several more doctor's visits or therapy appointments to extract even a fraction of the information in The Bipolar Supporter's Course. If you make $20 an hour at your job, you only have to save yourself 10 hours of time (a snap to do when you look at the time you waste driving to and from appointments, never mind waiting around for the doctor to actually get to you) to make your investment worth every penny.

Wouldn't you rather spend your free time with your loved one rather than desperately searching the Internet for information about bipolar disorder? Wouldn't you rather spend a few hours learning what's worked for other families and people with bipolar rather than dragging your loved one (and taking off of work yet again) from appointment to appointment in a fruitless search for answers?

Of course you would. That's why it makes perfect sense to order your copy today.

I'll Even Help Finance Your Purchase

Now maybe this is a tight month . and you don't have $199.95 to invest right now. If that's the case, I have more good news for you.

When you decide to pay for your investment in the Master's Edition of The Bipolar Supporter's Course using your Visa, Master Card, American Express, or Discover card, you don't have to pay the full amount up front. Instead, you can make two convenient monthly installment payments (shipping and handling charges will be added to your first payment).

Trust me, you can't go wrong by investing in The Bipolar Supporter's Course.

But just to make things 100% risk-free for you . I'm going to back your investment in this information-packed resource with this unheard of, two-part guarantee.

Your Investment Is Backed by a TWO Iron-Clad, 100%, 120-Day, Total-Satisfaction-or-Your-Money-Back Guarantee

If, at the end of 5 months, you haven't SAVED at least $817 with my course, all you need to do is ask me for a refund and you've got it, every penny (less Shipping & Handling), after 5 months. This course is designed to teach you about bipolar disorder, save you time -and save you money. I am so confident about this that I've built it into my guarantee.

"I doubt you can find anybody else offering any kind of information on bipolar disorder willing to provide a guarantee even half as strong as mine."

- David Oliver, author of The Bipolar Supporter's Course

But don't just take my word for it. Take a look at what supporters of people with bipolar are saying about The Bipolar Supporter's Course.

Why Supporters of People with Bipolar Disorder Highly Recommend The Bipolar Supporter's Course

Here's a small sample of the praise and positive feedback I've received from grateful spouses, children, siblings, relatives and friends of people with bipolar disorder.

"I have recently been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I ordered David's course for my boyfriend since he was my only support system that I had. Not only did David's course help him it also helped me.

It gave him more information on what the disorder was, what to expect, how to plan for an episode, how to handle my affairs if I ever had to be hospitalized, and so much more. He was much more confident about talking to the doctors after reading the information. He was better educated to ask questions that we would have never even known to ask. Before David's course we were not even sure if he should be going to the doctor with me. Now we know what we should be doing.

It gave me all the information I needed and questions I needed to ask to make sure that I picked the right therapist, the right doctor, and the right medical staff treating me.

I am one of the luckier ones. I have a mental illness but I am not afraid to get help. In fact I invite it any time I can because I do not want to be like this anymore. I have put a lot of effort in to finding as much information as I can for myself and my family but David's course gave me information that I never even thought to look for. This is the best investment I could have ever made for myself and my family. Thanks again,"

-Bridget Brown

"I am a nurse with bipolar. I found your course by doing an Internet search on "bipolar." You sent the information I ordered promptly. You were available per phone or Email to answer my questions. I found the materials to be thorough and very appropriate for any person supporting a loved one who is bipolar. The audio-tape was especially meaningful. David's course is well worth the cost. What is it worth to see a loved one stable and receiving necessary support and community benefits? You decide."

-Mary E. McPheron

"Mr. Oliver,

There are no words to tell you how much you have helped my family. Your course has given us new hope for our son."

-Eileen Madej

"Dear David,

Where have you been all my life??? Your information is invaluable. Thank you so much."

-Bonnie B.

"The Bipolar Supporters Manual by David Oliver is a valuable new resource for people with this illness, and their family and friends. My husband suffered from this disorder for years before it was finally diagnosed. I felt like I was living with Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Our finances were a mess and his mood swings could be unbearable at times. This guide helps individuals and family members come to terms with the diagnosis; recognize early warning signs of manic or depressive episodes; cope with triggers for mood swings; manage medication problems and family and work issues; and learn to collaborate effectively with doctors and therapists. I found the Bipolar Supporters Manual by David Oliver to be informative and thorough. It gave the information in an easy to read and well put together format."

-Marlene Hamilton, Oliver B.C. Canada

"Thank you for your emails concerning bi-polar disorder. It is I who am bi-polar, but not experiencing the extremes you have described. I found your course very useful. There are differences between the Canadian and American medical system which make it somewhat easier for me to get the assistance I need. I was looking for pitfalls to watch out for, and you showed me a number of them. I would say that your course is very complete. However, since I do not experience the severe situations which you have described, I am unable to offer assistance. You have covered more than I need."

-Geena Green

"DAVID, THANKS FOR ALL THE INFO AND STORIES ABOUT YOUR MOM IT HAS REALLY HELPED ME. I AM THE ONE WITH BI-POLAR. I GOT DIAGNOSED WITH BI-POLAR 2, 2 MONTHS AGO. THEY MISDIAGNOSED ME FOR 6 MONTHS. BUT I AM ON TRACK NOW KINDA. I AM DOING THIS BY MYSELF. AND ITS REALLY HARD SO ALL YOUR INFO HELPS A LOT. THANK YOU SINCERELY "

-EDDY

"Dear David,

The bipolar mini-course was exceptional in its content and insight. Having shared it with my husband, he also appreciated your information. Since problems have run in my family, it was a gentle reminder of what sufferers of bipolar disorder face, and family advice on how to deal with the aspects. Thank you so much for your time and help, and for caring enough to share this information."

-Laura K. Pompano Beach, FL

"Hi, David --

I really enjoy reading your sessions. They are excellent. I am looking for information about bipolar sufferers to share news or story to help me understand how and why I have to deal with bipolar myself. Anyway, I do really enjoy reading yours!!!"

-Sherri Juby

"Hello Mr. Oliver

I truly found your seminar , helpful and inspirational in so many ways it has been a truly powerful eye opener. Thank you for the service and I whole heartedly recommend it to anyone in need of information about bi-polar and it's consequences."

-Rey Torres

"I found your course to be honest and educating to the public. I appreciated you sending me the info, I read it and agreed with you. People who have love ones who have bi-polar need as much education as they can receive about how to deal with the disease. The disease can affect other people as well as the patient who has it, and it is a very gross and difficult disease to deal with unless you understand the various components of the disease and the particular aspects of the individuals needs to prevent an episode and to encourage them to keep taking their medication. Thank you,"

-Dr. Colette M. Dowell, ND

"Hi Dave,

I already ordered your course, received it, and I'm using it. I must add that one of the most important things, other than the course, is your feedback. When you know that there's someone there to answer your questions, it gives you a feeling of security. You have no idea how helpful you have been to me each time you have given me feedback regarding one of my concerns. It's as though I were not alone and you were holding my hand comforting me and reassuring me that all will be all right. I really do thank you."

-Josephyne Fisher

"David, I just got done reading the Bipolar Manual and I wanted to thank you for writing it and sharing your personal experience. I have never seen one source of so much information on bipolar in one place. Not only was this a great manual, it was easy to read and understand.

Your manual has helped me get more insight on bipolar disorder and it also has helped me to better understand the illness. Because of your manual, I feel better equipped to help my loved one whereas before I felt like there was no hope. Not only do I know what to do and how to react, I feel if I forget to something, I can refer back to the manual for help.

David, I can't thank you enough for what you've done for me through your manual."

-Pascale Jean

"David, Do not quit. Your information is the best I have gotten to help me understand our bipolar son."

--Kathy

"David, From the moment I got the information in the mail, I could not put it down. We have been looking for information to help our daughter, your information came a few days before we were going to have her probated. After reading your information, I had a talk with her and convinced her to change her meds, to help us (dad, mom, brother since we have the problem). I don't think it was an accident that I came upon your site, I prayed that the good Lord would help us help her. We didn't want to probate her."

--Linda

"I just started receiving your mini free course in Jan. 05 and I find that any information regarding my son's well being and my peace of mind is worth reading.

The bottom line is every person in our family now receives your mini course. We email one another and talk about what we have read and how it applies to our loved one. Your course has given us a small portion of what to watch for to keep a major episode in the past into getting help sooner to keep the number of days in the hospital to a minimum.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for real time information that is very beneficial to our family and coping with this disease on a daily basis."

--Linda H.

"All I can say is I wish I would have found your course and information about a year ago and it would have really really helped me I think we expected too much from my brother and so consequently he is in a worse situation now. Thanks."

--Velvet

"Hi David, Your course HAS helped me start to understand what Bi-Polar is and what kinds of things people do who have this disorder. It has helped tremendously to stop me from responding the wrong way (taking it personally) to a person in our family who is "suspect bi-polar". Mentally and emotionally I feel "free" from getting wrapped up in this persons emotional "hell". "

--Cynthia

"I am for one glad I found your information. My EX-husband is Bipolar-Rapid cycler. I can tell you, you feel really alone in dealing with this disease. I didn't recognize a lot of the things going on. I wish I would have known more so I could have helped more, but that comes with time and knowledge. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK."

You Have 3 Choices . Which Path Will You Lead Your Family Down?

Well, it's decision time. You have three choices now. And the one you choose will affect you - and your loved one - for the rest of your lives.

Choice #1: You don't do anything. You can keep pretending that you have a handle on your loved one's bipolar disorder or that everything will work itself out. You can just turn a blind eye to the horrible possibilities of drugs, alcohol abuse, problems at work, bankruptcy, lost friends, homelessness, bad doctors, and poverty that await your loved one in the future.

Trust me, I've spoken to enough people who have bipolar disorder to know that these are the results when the disorder isn't dealt with properly.

Choice #2: You can decide to search for this information on your own. You can do the research, spend a ton of money, and devote years to trial and error testing before possibly finding a way to conquer your loved one's bipolar disorder. Keep in mind that the strategies that are included in this course have taken years and costs thousands of dollars to research.

In the meantime, your loved one's career, socialization, and well-being will suffer. And your life will continue to be disrupted and dictated by the whims of this vicious disease.

Remember, the real key to your loved one's success is getting the RIGHT information and taking massive and immediate action on what you learn.

Without the right information, you and your loved one are DOOMED! You will spend years trying to figure things out. Getting all the right information could take years, upon years. I know - because the strategies I reveal in The Bipolar Supporter's Course took a solid year of day and night research and thousands of dollars to develop.

As I look back with my experience, I've said:

If I only had more information. Yes, if I only had more information, my family would have been spared so many of the horrors I described to you. Our journey would have been one of joy and discovery, instead of pain and suffering. Needless pain and suffering many times.

The Good News is.I have learned from my mistakes and hundreds of other parent's mistakes.

The Better News is.You can learn all of this in the comfort of your own home.

The Best News is.you can have all the information you need to make it through the maze of supporting a child with bipolar disorder, WITHOUT having to go through what I went through, because you will have the one thing I did not have and had to get on my own-INFORMATION!!!

That's why it makes the most logical sense to go with .

Choice #3: You can invest in The Bipolar Supporter's Course and immediately discover how to start effectively helping your loved one reclaim his or her life. You'll be able to take a "shortcut" past all of the time, energy, effort, money, and heartbreak so your loved one and the rest of your family can be happy again without the threat of another episode looming over them.

So which choice are you going to make?

I want to help my loved one cope with bipolar.

The Longer You Wait . the Harder and Less Likely It Will Be to Get Back to "Normal"

You may not have realized this but . bipolar disorder is one of the most devastating disorders on the planet. It can and often does destroy everyone and everything in its path. Plus, it's one of the most EXPENSIVE illnesses you'll ever be faced with. People have gone from living lush and lavish lifestyles to being practically penniless because of this disorder. Not to mention the loss of jobs, relationships, and peace of mind that bipolar disorder also causes.

The bad news is that . the longer you wait to intervene,
the worse the problems are going to get.

That's why it's so crucial that you take this step now so that you can help your loved one bypass the problems that plague so many people who have bipolar disorder.

Look at my family. My mom dealt with bipolar disorder for her entire life, but if her parents had found the information I've included in The Bipolar Supporter's Course, they could have saved her and us from years of grief, mountains of debt, and dozens of damaged relationships.

Even my dad and I could have helped my mom earlier and saved our family from going through the nightmares her episodes represented. But we didn't. We simply chose to believe that each episode would be the last . and we'd try to reassure ourselves that "it can't get any worse."

But guess what . . . bipolar doesn't go away. And your loved one won't get better on their own. The problems and episodes will just keep getting worse and worse.

Eventually, your entire family will be dragged down, too.

There is no cure for bipolar disorder.

The only way your loved one will achieve a normal life is by learning to cope with the disorder.

Now YOU have the power to help your loved one live a normal, happy, successful life as a productive member of society . with the information, tips and techniques contained in The Bipolar Supporter's Course.

With the information you'll find in this course, you will be able to turn your loved one's life around. You'll be able to ensure that your loved one receives the best medical treatment possible, is able to nip any future episodes in the bud, stay out of financial trouble, and hold down a steady job.

Aren't you finally ready to reclaim your own life . by helping your loved one conquer bipolar disorder? Or would you rather waste the next twenty, thirty, or forty+ years being bossed around by this nasty mental illness?

Ask anyone who has bipolar disorder or who has been supporting someone with the disorder for years, and they'll tell you . that they would pay ANY amount of money to turn back the clock and to make the types of changes you'll discover in this course. They know that this information would have made theirs and their loved ones' lives better sooner.

I'm ready to help my loved one live with bipolar disorder.
