Bipolar talk

Emotional highs, numbing lows, high

energy, no energy. For years, Ruth Allen

rode this rollercoaster. She hopes to help

others by recounting her journey February

11 at Arbor Gallery, 36 Home Ave.,

Vankleek Hill at 7:30 p.m. as part of the

Speaker Series. “Bipolar 2 – A Biological

and Psychological Brain Disorder” is an

“amazing tale of courage and

perseverance,” say organizers. “It is a

personal journey which can resonate with

each one of us.”

Allen raised three children while

managing a fulfilling nursing career

spanning 20 years, retiring in 1998. “It

was time to look after myself and stop

marching to someone else’s drum,” says

Allen. “And there was always this nagging

feeling that somehow my body and my

mind weren’t always in sync.” Retirement

was a blessing, a time to read, read, and

read some more. Allen’s research into

“Brain Disorders” led her to the subject of

Bipolar, and specifically Bipolar 2. “It’s a

difficult disease to understand – and it

certainly does not lend itself to easy


She hopes to help anyone who suffers

from the devastating emotional and

physical symptoms of this affliction and to

try to remove the “stigma” that still

surrounds brain disorders and mental

health issues in today’s society.

“The best way to change old views is

through education, become aware of the

facts and stop accepting and repeating old

clichés and attitudes,” says Allen.
