Joe-Kraynak smJoe Kraynak is a freelance writer who has authored and coauthored dozens of books on topics ranging from personal computers to slam poetry. Joe received his degree in bipolar disorder from the College of Hard Knocks. On December 10, 1999, Joe’s wife, Cecie, was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Since that day, they have bounced around to nearly a dozen doctors and even more therapists; broken in a few young marriage counselors; survived several changes in health insurance coverage; attended dozens of support group meetings; endured the career changes and financial hardships that often accompany bipolar disorder; and, together with a close neighbor, started a NAMI support group in Crawfordsville, Indiana.

In Bipolar Disorder For Dummies, which he coauthored with Dr. Candida Fink, Joe shares his perspective on helping a loved one effectively manage bipolar disorder and its fallout. Joe and Candida also co-host Psych Central’s award-winning Bipolar Beat, a blog that focuses on living well with bipolar disorder. For more about Joe, visit his website at JoeKraynak.com.
