About The Author

My name is Naomi S. S. Jacobs. I have a BA in Linguistics from the University of Chicago. I also have a Ph.D in Early Judaism from Durham University.

I have taught at Washington University in Saint Louis and Durham University (UK) where my character and integrity are known to many. Locally I have taught for CURFA (CU retired Faculty Association) and am known to a number of past and present CU faculty. I also am a community educator. I am also an artist who has exhibited nationally as well as locally.

Since 1991 I have been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. I have been open about this to my family, close friends and selected colleagues and much of my community. I have openly discussed my condition as a speaker for NAMI in Saint Louis and have plans to speak further on the subject in public.

I have never been violent nor have I been arrested nor have I ever smoked, been intoxicated by alcohol, taken any kind of recreational drug, including marijuana. As an educator, I have been consistently calm and balanced. Most people who meet me have no idea of my diagnosis. My insight into my own state of mind, even when manic, is notable, as well as my insight to what is taking place around me.
