Helena Smole presents her own successful path out of her daily struggle against extreme mood swings, suicidal thoughts, paranoia, and other delusions in her book Balancing the Beast: A Bright View of Schizoaffective Disorder - Bipolar or Manic-Depressive Type. The book describes a unique combination of humor and hard work along with psychiatric medication. The mental exercises, lifestyle choices, and other alternative medicine approaches that she combined with clinically-prescribed medication eventually led to the alleviation of her illness. As shown in the book, her success is to a significant extent due to having fully accepted herself the way she is, the illness included.
