BESS ADAMS, author of “SACRED LINES: A PERSONAL JOURNEY FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT”
We met Bess Adams, author of Sacred Lines, A Personal Journey From Darkness To Light, in this candid discussion about bipolar disorder. This illness is a physical disease that affects the brain. People with bipolar disorder go through extreme mood swings accompanied by changes in sleep patterns, energy levels, and the ability to think clearly. Bipolar symptoms are so intense they can damage relationships and make it difficult to deal with daily life and attend school or keep a job.
Using the messages in Sacred Lines, Bess helps people discover how spirituality can bring comfort, hope, perspective, and self-worth, which leads to a greater ability to cope with the effects of this illness. A book signing followed.
Bess Adams is a registered nurse who has worked in traditional and holistic medicine since 1978. She has lived with bipolar disorder for 30 years and is passionate about sharing the story of her journey and what she has learned about surviving and thriving despite this disease.
