What Goes Up offers advice and coping strategies for readers with loved ones who suffer from manic depression (or bipolar disorder). Eron’s bipolar husband stopped taking his medication while on a trip and immediately went into a yearlong manic phase before crashing into the inevitable depression that led to his suicide in 1997. Her story is intended to provide comfort to those who share their lives with others suffering from this devastating illness while advising them as to what they should expect from someone in the midst of a manic episode and how to maintain their own sanity and strength during such an episode.
