Product description

Product Description

When Lindsay and Jake fell in love, it was magnetic and powerful. Jake declared that the “chemistry of love” pulled them together, that they were split-aparts, lucky to have found each other. Lindsay agreed, ecstatic that she had found her soulmate. When they exchanged wedding vows, they meant every word. … “for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death…”
Then Jake was diagnosed with clinical depression, a major depressive disorder that stole the joy from his life. Later, periods of rage and mania changed his personality, testing his relationship with Lindsay. A phase of manic euphoria and frenzied spending forced Lindsay to take drastic measures.
Jake’s revised diagnosis of bipolar disorder, a manic-depressive illness, a radical brain disorder, caused the wonderful life he and Lindsay had built to begin to disintegrate. Would their wedding vows be enough to get them through this strain on their marriage? Could Lindsay tolerate the chaos caused by Jake’s severe mood swings, high energy and activity levels during periods of mania, replaced by months of sadness, anxiety, isolation, and despair when depression took over?
Would Lindsay be able to keep her vow “to have and to hold… in sickness and in health…”? Bipolar disorder and depression, mental illness issues, fell into the category of sickness, but no one told her it would be this difficult.
After years of psychiatrist visits, medication changes, counseling sessions, and other recommended therapy for Jake’s bipolar disorder, his moods still were not stabilized. Would newly discovered gene assays and blood tests indicate choices for a better treatment? Would escaping their stressful lifestyle and moving to México give Jake and Lindsay the new start their relationship needed?
Lindsay was determined to find the answer to balancing Jake’s brain chemistry so he would return to her as the split-apart she had fallen in love with. She hoped the chemistry of love would hold them together long enough to overcome this horrible disorder.
