Christine, 47, US

“Tragically I was orphaned by my 9th birthday and was raised by my older brother. I was diagnosed with Bipolar I Disorder in 1987.

I attended Pace University for my undergraduate studies and received my MBA in Marketing from New York University’s Stern School of Business in 1991. I have traveled extensively and lived in New York City, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles.

Due to my bipolar disorder, events led to me serving a 70-month federal prison sentence for securities fraud between MCC Chicago and FCI Danbury, Connecticut. I have dedicated my life to the animal rescue via www.thecrittercrusade.com. I now live with my boyfriend and many animals on a farm in a small country town in central Virginia.

In 2013, I self-published my memoir, Forever Different, I founded Christine F. Anderson Publishing & Media, where I am currently CEO www.publishwithcfa.com and I also serve on the marketing committee for the International Bipolar Foundation.

I spent more than 20 years untreated, unmedicated and living in denial because I was ashamed. I tell my story to inspire others to take a stand and live their truth. Don’t wait, go to therapy, take your meds, tell your friends and family and come to acceptance it is the only way to heal.”
