About the Author

Diagnosed at the age of twenty with rapid-cycling bipolar disorder with schizoaffective episodic delusions, it was not until a decade after A. Grieme’s own mental tumble that she was not-so-gently shown her path to be a mental health awareness advocate.

Today, she lives to share how she stayed afloat in this ever-cycling existence, and to help others understand they can, too. It was while she was curled into herself, cradled uncomfortably into the corner of her parent’s couch following a psychotic episode that she found her way out of her own hell with a pen and paper. It was all she could do… the first step in the separation from an insidious diagnosis that did not allow itself to be ignored.

Despite the ever-present fog and deleterious effects from prescribed little blue and pink pills, deemed “imagination slayers” by Grieme, she wrote letters. The Letters documented her fall to those she loved and admired, here and gone.

As A. Grieme says “with each letter a piece of MYSELF, smothered by rapid cycling bipolar disorder slowly unraveled… detangling the knot that choked the essence of who I am: ME.” A. Grieme resides with her family outside of a tiny town on the Northeastern Seaboard, USA.

She is an author, educator, and chooses writing, coaching, teaching, and radio as her creative, cathartic mediums to help others. Her life experience with mental illness, self-medication, and almost two decades in education lends her readers, students, clients, and listeners invaluable, empowering, often quirky life advice, braided in a message of hope.

Grieme is also the proud author of H.O.L.D.F.A.S.T: Ride out Parenting with Bipolar Disorder (2020), Paging Dr. Freedman (2019), "Dear Prudence"( 2009) the inspiration for Paging Dr. Freedman, and Motherhood Made ME Get Over MYSELF: A Metamorphosis (a published blog, 2014).
