Bob Krulish on Turning Lemons into Lemonade with Bipolar Disorder
This week, I spoke to Bob Krulish about his journey with Bipolar I Disorder.
During Bob Krulish’s tenure at Nationwide Insurance and Safeco, he saw a doctor for stress related symptoms and was incorrectly diagnosed with depression. He was placed on a medication that would ultimately cause him to ruin his own life. Once Bob received the proper diagnosis of Bipolar 1 Disorder, he was able to slowly put his life back together and soon found the strength to share his struggles with others. He is the author of When Screams Become Whispers and can be found online at bobkrulish.com.

Curious host, great information
I was a guest on Minding Wellness and thought Claudia asked great questions and was genuinely interested in learning more and helping her community live well. This is a podcast offers something for everyone looking to improve their physical and emotional health. Take a listen. You’ll be hooked!
Just listened to Esther Blum podcast
Loved the interview. So much to think about. She brings in a good speaker to peak your interest
Claudia is a person who genuinely wants to help her fellow human beings. She is a pharmacist and has been down the "typical" established medical path and has questioned some of the things she has learned along the way. Her background offers her a unique prospective and her open mindedness is admirable. Her guests are intelligent and interesting and Claudia does her homework before her interviews so that she can get the best of her guests out to her listeners.
