Kyk My in Die Oë is a first of its kind in the Afrikaans language. A cut-to-the-chase, insightful story of one person's struggle with bipolar disorder.
Set on the back drop of a busy news station where Elsabé works as a journalist, in the time of Marike de Klerk's murder. Elsabé tells candidly how in 2001, she was floored by this disease and people's reaction towards it. Eventually after stints in institutions, hospitals, brain shock therapy and stereotypes, Elsabé emerged on the other side and was able to put her life back together.
Her accurate descriptions allow the reader to experience what it's like to be in a manic, and sometimes out right crazy state. This book is not only helpful to those who sufferers, but also to friends, family and hopefully health care providers to understand this, all encompassing disease.
