"Polarized A bipolar memoir" by Dr. Patricia Frisch

Dr. Patricia Frisch shares her life experiences with bipolar disorder and explains how she’s led a successful life despite the condition in her memoir, “Polarized: a bipolar memoir” (ISBN 1467966290). She stresses research as a priority for finding a cure for this physical illness. According to Frisch, medication compliance and identifying environmental stressors that aggravate the illness make a significant difference in clients’ functional abilities.

Frisch explains how she went on to lead a successful life both in the workplace and as a wife and mother, despite the symptoms of her bipolar disorder. She shows readers how to uncover their talents through finding stability and shares her own treatment experiences.

In “Polarized,” Frisch explains how she couldn’t have overcome the grips of her bipolar disorder on her own. She credits her family, various medications, prayer and psychotherapy as driving forces in coping with bipolarity. Frisch, who suffers from bipolar 1 disorder and rheumatoid arthritis, says her book goes beyond covering one particular moment in her life.

“It runs the gamut from stories as a child, adolescent, college student and wife and mother to my experiences as a teacher, pastoral counselor and student,” Frisch says. “I want my memoir to inspire others to lead the life they want to lead without being discouraged by their disease or any difficult situation in life.”

Frisch’s “Polarized” is motivational in that it shows how she was able to become a doctor and earn multiple degrees. Her determination and sheer drive to succeed helped her receive her doctorate and two masters’ degrees. She hopes her memoir will encourage readers to learn more about bipolar disorder and coping mechanisms.

“Polarized: a bipolar memoir” is available for sale online at and other channels.

About the Author: Dr. Patricia Frisch earned her doctorate from Loyola University Maryland and also holds two masters’ degrees, which were required for entrance into Loyola’s Ph.D. program. Frisch was a teacher and director of religious education before becoming a pastoral counselor.
