I am an advocate for mental health, addiction and recovery. I am publishing a book, The Third Sunrise: a Memoir of Madness this March.


Background Information

Natalie Jeanne Champagne is the author of The Third Sunrise. At the age of twenty-six, after many years struggling with a diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder at the age of twelve, addictions and disordered eating, she walked the road less traveled and somehow found her way home. Natalie regularly contributes to mental health and addictions publications and is an advocate for mental health. She currently lives in British Columbia, Canada. The Third Sunrise is her first book.

 

Synopsis

The Third Sunrise takes the reader into a world that is as terrifying as it is exhilarating: it depicts the life of a young woman who, at the age of twelve was diagnosed with early-onset Bipolar Disorder, spent many years in a psychiatric hospital where she was prescribed cocktails of medications promising recovery. Recovery never found her, and frightened, she found something else: drugs and alcohol. They quickly become exactly what she needed a brilliant, black, detour from reality.

At the age of twenty she had devoted her life to addiction and it nearly killed her in the process. Escape wasn't possible: she bathed in the darkness of cocaine, shook hands with heroin, and relished in the comfort of alcohol. She ceased to exist. The seizures she suffered at the hands of drugs, the abuse caused by those she invited into her life, and the pain she inflicted on herself and her family were lost to the underworld of drugs.

The Third Sunrise is a confessional, darkly humored, account of life through the eyes of a woman fighting to find it.
