Radio Guest Karen Tyrrell to Share her Story of Bipolar Disorder and Recovery
Date:6/29/2012

(PRWEB) June 29, 2012

Karen Tyrrell is the Australian author of “Me and Her: A Memoir of Madness”(2012) and will be our guest on the Runaway Mind Radio Show in July! http://www.blogtalkradio.com/ndbmedia/2012/07/22/runaway-mind--me-and-her-a-memoir-of-madness

Karen's story begins with the parents of one of her students repeatedly harassed her to breaking point. Karen developed Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and severe Bipolar Disorder. She’s now recovered and reclaimed her life, becoming a pro-active mental health advocate, writer and speaker. Karen delivered her Life Writing program to mental health patients at a public hospital, offering hope. She guest blogs on mental health websites across the globe. Her self-penned recovery life story has appeared in magazines and on live radio.Karen’s gutsy memoir, “Me and Her: A Memoir of Madness” narrates her struggle and triumph over bipolar disorder. Karen shares her positive guide to recovery and wellness via a free newsletter at http://www.karentyrrell.com

In Karen's book she shares how she became extremely stressed and anxious, developing acute insomnia and unpredictable panic attacks. Each night terrifying night terrors tormented her. She dreaded returning to teaching and to the class she once loved. Her personal and family relationships broke down and she could no longer cope. The symptoms gradually grew worse until she experienced a psychotic break. In a fit of desperation, Karen escaped and ran to a covert motel hideaway. Police arrived at the motel, pounding on the door, insisting she surrender. A medical team forcibly escorted her to a psyche ward where they incarcerated her away from family. Each day she wrote down what was happening, reflecting on her experiences. Writing became cathartic as Karen strove to recover and find out why she became so ill. Daily writing became a powerful tool to reflect on her condition and trial mental health strategies to aid in recovery.

On her website http://www.karentyrrell.com Karen states that “Mental illness is like any other illness… It has symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and recovery. I challenge everyone to fight against the stigma of mental illness and spread my news of hope. Recovering from a severe mental illness empowered me in a positive way. If I can recover from the depths of mania and madness, you can do anything … Never, ever give up!”

Karen actively supports The Sean Costello Memorial Fund who researches the latest in treatment for bipolar disorder. Debbie Costello set up this fund in remembrance of her son Sean Costello, a celebrity blues musician who lost his battle with bipolar.

From her website we want to share an important testimony by Yvonne DeBellotte of Emory University. “I want to thank Karen for sharing your story. I am now able to understand what it was like for my family member being incarcerated in hospitals. You showed me what they might have thought about each day while they were there trying to get better. How they were brave some days, and very frightened the other days.“No matter what the illness, there is no one size, one doctor, one pill, one therapy, one hospital, one solution that fits all. It is a trial and error process; you must have patience to find the best solution that will work with your uniqueness.”
