Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar Disorder

Chynna Laird gets it. She understands my passion for nursing and mental health nursing. In fact, it is her passion to help children and families living with special needs, “especially those living with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) and bipolar disorder.”

Chynna is the tour host today for Caring Lessons. I can tell she “gets it” by the  sensitive review of my book that she is featuring now on one of her blogs.

Here’s a clip from her review: “…it is a beautifully written book. It’s honest, it’s ‘real’ and I most admire Lois for bringing awareness not only to the life of a nurse but also to things such as cancer, mental health as well as being strong enough to be everything we’re meant to be no matter how high the hurdles we face.” Read the entire review here.

I wish Chynna all the best in her multiple efforts at advocacy, education, and leadership for a most deserving segment of our population.

And, thank you, Chynna, for putting into writing a fact that we nurses know, but not everyone understands, that “… nurses aren’t just ‘doctor helpers’ who change bedpans and take our temperatures. They do so much more. And what they do matters so much.”
