Recently, I released my mental health written in a real-time memoir about my experience with prescription medication for my bipolar disorder. I call this psychological adversity my “gifted curse”, which is an oxymoron just like myself. But, maybe we are all oxymorons? Who knows.
Reluctantly, I was afraid to put out this book and I had second thoughts about it because I would about to be putting a tiny wood chip of my suckling soul out there for the world. That is a scary thought for anyone, and for me todo it gave me anxiety leading up to the day of publication.
Why did I do this? Simple, I wanted to help people. There is a lack of awareness, information, and understanding of how mental health can cripple people from reaching their greatest potential. This book means a great deal to me, as I have been absolutely tortured by the monsters in my head which have prevented me from flourishing the way that I want to.
My goal with this book is to help someone who is lost. Psychiatrists to understand. To make therapists empathize. For parents to accept their loved ones. By putting out this extremely personal piece, in a three-part series, I now will have the power to help someone, and that is all that I want.
Here is the summary of my book:
“Gray Poopon” is the first volume of author David Zosel’s book series “Conquering the Gifted Curse of Bipolarism.” It’s a real time memoir of the changes that he goes through with prescription medication to aid his Bipolar 1 Disorder. Zosel slowly discovers powerful interior and exterior changes while taking his meds, which he refers to as “gray poopon.” Written during a time of serious lows in his bipolar cycle, he provides brutal honesty regarding his fears, current life adversity, self-betterment, and quest to finding balance. Join Zosel as he journeys to recognize that medication does not solve all life problems, but can be used as a partial guide to finding equilibrium. Learn how he finds sheer determination to survive and thrive with Bipolar Disorder.
I just want to help someone and make a difference so that those who suffer from a mental illness can transform it into a superpower to survive and thrive in this crazy world.
Remember, “The Zos Knows”.
