Product Overview

When approaching the challenges faces as parents, you reach a point where you must scratch ""the way you've always done it"" and open your minds and hearts to doing whatever it takes to get the job done. Like any father, when David Brown's daughter Emily was diagnosed with Rapid Cycle Bipolar Disorder at age thirteen, he immediately thought he could ""fix it."" But it wasn't until her attempted suicide turned life upside down for their entire family that he realized he would need a set of tools he had never used before. Fear and doubt, combined with worry as a father, prompted David's quest to learn as much as he could about Bipolar Disorder. His journey helped him to realize that some of his own behaviors were triggers to Emily's episodes and taught him that he would have to rediscover ways to communicate with his daughter if he had any hope of restoring the trust they once had. Duct Tape and WD-40 is an inspirational look at the journey of one father into the world of mental illness.
