Alfredo Zotti on surviving Bipolar disorder and being a creative person

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZA0p9m66kgI&t=156s

Hi, my name is Alfredo and I am an Italian immigrant–I emigrated to Australia from Italy in 1974. Back in the 80s I discovered that I had bipolar disorder, however that did not stop me from creating a good life for myself. I did all the things that made me a good citizen: I started to work but as a musician and as a cook in various Italian restaurants and later went to university and was able to get a university degree

I majored in sociology in anthropology and later study some psychology. Later, I began to help people online people that suffer with depression and anxiety and bipolar disorder. What I discovered was that many people with bipolar disorder, but also other disorders such as depression and anxiety were very creative and extremely intelligent. Today after many years of helping people online and helping myself and my wife–because we both suffered with bipolar disorder–I have come to one important conclusion: that bipolar disorder, just like depression and anxiety in other mental disorders as well, it’s part of being human of the human experience.

I invite you to learn more through this video as we discuss creativity and mental disorders with experts.

Product Details

A grieving daughter and abuse survivor must summon the courage to run a feminist conference, trust a man she meets over the Internet, and escape a catfishing stalker to find her power.
Ahana, a wealthy thirty-three-year-old New Delhi woman, flees the pain of her mother's death, and her dark past, by accepting a huge project in New Orleans, where she'll coordinate an annual conference to raise awareness of violence against women. Her half-Indian, half-Irish colleague and public relations guru, Rohan Brady, who helps Ahana develop her online presence, offends her prim sensibilities with his raunchy humor. She is convinced that he's a womanizer.
Meanwhile, she seeks relief from her pain in an online support group, where she makes a good friend: the mercurial Jay Dubois, who is also grieving the loss of his mother. Louisiana Catch is an emotionally immersive novel about identity, shame, and who we project ourselves to be in the world. It's a book about Ahana's unreliable instincts and her ongoing battle to deterŹmine whom to place her trust in as she, Rohan, and Jay shed layers of their identities.

"Louisiana Catch is a triumph. In Ahana, Sweta Vikram has created an unforgettable character, strong, wise, and deeply human, who'll inspire a new generation struggling to come to terms with their identity in a world of blurring identities."
--KARAN BAJAJ, New York Times bestselling author, The Yoga of Max's Discontent

"In Louisiana Catch, Sweta Vikram brings life to the complex human rights issue of violence against women. Through one woman's journey to make sense of her past and ultimately heal, Vikram shows us that yoga can reconnect us to ourselves, and that by empowering others, we transform our own lives."
--ZOË LEPAGE, Founder, Exhale to Inhale

"Louisiana Catch perfectly captures what it means to be human in a digital world, where support groups meet online, love interests flirt on Twitter, and people get confused with personas. Equal parts tender and playful, moving and hopeful, Vikram's prose connects us with timeless truths about grief and redemption in a satisfyingly modern way."
--STEPHANIE PATERIK, Managing Editor, Adweek
