This is a 100,000 word, 200 page, longitudinal, retrospective and prospective account of my experience with bipolar disorder and some other mental health problems over 70 years: from October 1943 to October 2013. This account is a personal, clinical, and idiosyncratic study of what some life-study students call a chaos narrative. This study focuses on an aspect of my life involving several mental health issues, but mainly bipolar 1 disorder. This account is now in its 13th edition. In my retirement, the years from 2001 to 2013, I have revised the account each year up-dating the content (i) as new information about the mental health issues I deal with are added to the science, and (ii) as I continue to deal with these mental health issues as I head to the age of 70 in 2014.
