Our first guest is Michelle Dickinson-Moravek, author of Breaking Into My Life: Growing Up with a Bipolar Parent and My Battle to Reclaim Myself, knows firsthand how punishing it can be to love someone with a mental illness. Knowing that approximately one in five adults in the U.S. experiences mental illness in a given year, just isn’t the same as growing up with a mother who struggled with bipolar disorder.

Dickinson-Moravek’s story of perseverance and triumph is as painfully revealing as it is uplifting. Her memoir, Breaking Into My Life, starts with her learning to care for her bipolar mother as a child, a role that was imposed upon her. Dickinson-Moravek shares how she watched her mother seesaw between mania and deep depression while putting on the perfect front to keep her secret confined to walls of their home.

Dickinson-Moravek hopes her message prompts dialogue about mental illness at home, in school, and in the workplace. “Open discussions have the power to humanize mental illness, have it be less feared, and move us all closer to eradicating the stigma once and for all,” she says. To receive a free chapter of Breaking Into My Life, which is available on Amazon, go to www.breakingintomylife.com .

 

Our next guest is  Seth J. Baum, M.D., was at the American College of Cardiology’s (ACC) 67th Annual Scientific Sessions he discusses  new research that explores the clinical impact for cardiovascular patients denied access to PCSK9 inhibitors. He will also touch on the significant need to ensure high-risk patients – people with high ‘bad’ cholesterol and those at risk for a cardiovascular event – who may benefit from a PCSK9 inhibitor can receive it if appropriately prescribed by their physicians. Many patients with established CV disease cannot access PCSK9 inhibitors because of excessive “red tape” generated by restrictive insurance paperwork. Joining Dr. Baum is Mahendra , PCSK9 inhibitor patient.
