WILMINGTON, NC, April 07, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Imagine battling depression, bipolar, dyslexia and stuttering - all at the same time. Now imagine this happens during a time when doctors knew nothing about chemical imbalances in the brain. Finally imagine that the struggle goes on for 82 years. That is Sid Nachman's wildly engaging story, detailed in his brutally honest memoir, 'Bipolar Me'.
Sid Nachman was the first person in the US to have been successfully treated for bipolarism over 50 years ago. 'Bipolar Me' provides a penetrating glimpse into the day-to-day experience of a man who dealt with a condition for which there was no name at the time - a time when such chemical imbalances might be diagnosed as a form of schizophrenia and could be treated with electric shock treatment or end up with the sufferer being locked away.
'Bipolar Me' is a wild ride of a story that has garnered high praise from readers and reviewers alike. Sid's no-holds-barred writing style and deft storytelling, combined with his own style of acerbic wit, takes readers on a trip through his life and his mind. It is filled with hilarious stories that show us that life is just plain good. BookLover USA said that the book is "A roller coaster ride through the mind of one of the funniest and endearing story-tellers of his generation." It is a highly entertaining memoir that allows readers to take a ride with Sid into the unfettered mind of a bipolar boy who never grows up until his hair turns white. Readers will get to see his world in black and white and vivid color and will feel what he feels when he feels like he weighs three thousand pounds and a minute later can leap over tall buildings. Sid's life is a life gone wild that settles down when it's almost too late.
"One of my friends told me that she read 'Bipolar Me' and it was was simply amazing that I could fight my way out of such debilitating disorders," Nachman stated. "I've been telling my wife, Linda that I'm amazing for years but I still can't get her to bow down. I just don't know what to do to get respect. I guess I have to try a little harder."
Sid Nachman is also the author of 'Strictly For Seniors' - a nonfiction work of short stories about what happened to Sid "after breakfast on Delancey Street" in West Philly during the 30's and 40's when his Mom gave him a big hug and kiss and sent him on his way. Sid had great fun, survived bullying by hitting the bigger boys about the head with his violin case and developed his own singular brand of "street smarts".
Both of Nachman's books have received fantastic reviews. One stated, "Like James Joyce, Sid Nachman can take the ordinary and turn it into magic with a fluency that's imperceptible." Another said "Sid's stories touch the human soul with wit, charm and realism."
