Greg Montgomery – Nice film made by football star with bipolar diagnosis

I communicated with Greg Montgomery quite a few times while writing the bipolar for nurses handbook.

He was famous as a football player.

I like his film especially the way he shares about life after diagnosis.

Is there a risk that we could be glamorizing a diagnosis rather than working towards annihilating it? Take a look at the video and let us know if you think.

    I found the at the Greg Montgomery movie moving. It was real. To me it was the answer to “recovery” from bipolar disorder.
    To those who say there is no recovery from bipolar disorder I say “You are wrong.” Greg Montgomery is living proof of this.
    The first step is a strong desire to manage the disorder. The second step is understanding the disorder. It is this understanding which leads to the ability to manage the disorder. The ability to manage the disorder then leads onto the ability to regain control of your life.

      Hi Ray, Thank you for your input. Sorry about the delay in approving it, just that the spam filter did not like the wording of your first sentence about the movie being ‘nice’ and so I did not see to approve it until just now. I deleted that sentence – yes, it certainly is a moving movie!
