  4. Angela, explores the implications of how life experiences can impact one’s mental health. From being a seemingly carefree young mother – career woman and educated, Angela’s story demonstrates that mental health challenges can happen to anyone. She explores the impact of bottling things in – the dangers and makes recommendations on how to tackle this. Angela has really been selfless by sharing personal details in the hope of helping others to seek help before things escalate. She has called out mental illness and the stigma surrounding it making it powerless to limit her, she has broken out of boxes society would want to confine her into simply because she has had a mental health challenge and by sharing her story empowers others to do the same. Her story offers hope for anyone going through a mental health crisis and their family and loved ones, dawn is coming and indeed sorrow may last for a night but joy comes in the morning.
    She credits, Jesus, the Word of God and the support of her family for her recovery and is now out in the community helping others regain their lives in what can be a very lonely journey.

    “Breaking Free – I am not Bipolar” is brave, challenging, pushes the boundaries but mostly importantly, is HOPEFUL!

  5. Very exceptional bad,so many people with BAD(bipolar affective disorder) are left out in the society thanks for standing out with such.

  6. Thank you for telling the story. Just readying the excerpt informs what a good read this is but beyond the book the healing derived from the truth in the Word of God.

    May ALL battling mental illness find healing.

  7. Angella you are one of the most courageous woman I have seen writing a story about your mental health issues. You did this because you love and cherish, did it want to see others suffer yet there are solutions. God bless you

  10. Angela, this is very inspiring especially to the challenged with the same situation. I am sure they now
    have a reason to keep living on for ahead of them there is Light!!!

  11. I read the book as soon as I got my hands on it. Everything is written so beautifully & extremely easy to understand. This book is brilliant. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to start or even further their healing journey!I love the recaps at the end of each chapter and the question section at the end of each chapter. The personal sharing of the author drives home her deep understanding of the problem. It is nice to know that she now works as a mental health activist providing awareness for people who are going through or have gone through any sort of mental health problems. In todays world where mental health Is still a taboo, I commend the author on her bravely. We need to talk. Put the kettle on and let it all out and brea free. This book is as comforting and validating as it is informative. I am very happy I have it.
