I also want to say how brave it was for her to write this under her own name. It does a lot to irradi i was reading some reviews of the book written by people that disliked this. It does a lot to irradicate the stigma against mental illness, and no doubt she met people in academia who had read her book but never met her, and formed opinions that might be less than true.
She really kind of put herself on the line for this, and i have to respect that. Those things aside, this book came to me at a very important time in my life. Because i want a professional career, i want to be well respected in my field - and jamieson proved that it was possible. Visit Amazon.

That you could recover from the depths and haul yourself out. Becuse it shows that you can be honest about your mental health, and still be okay. Herself endured the dangerous highs of euphoria mixed with the lows of depression. Her professional success as a clinical psychologist coupled with her forthright story helps to diminish the stigma of this serious mental illness that affect many.
The ideas and feelings are fast and frequent like shooting stars, and you follow them until you find better and brighter ones. Shyness goes, the right words and gestures are suddenly there, the power to captivate others a felt certainty.
There are interests found in uninteresting people. Sensuality is pervasive and the desire to seduce and be seduced irresistible. But, somewhere, this changes. The fast ideas are far too fast, and there are far too many; overwhelming confusion replaces clarity. Everything previously moving with the grain is now against-- you are irritable, angry, frightened, uncontrollable, and enmeshed totally in the blackest caves of the mind.
You never knew those caves were there. It will never end, for madness carves its own reality. Highly recommended! A lot of people seem to have a negative reaction to this book, which I totally get. As a social worker, I work with people who are diagnosed with severe mental illness -- mostly schizophrenia, but also many with severe bipolar disorder. The vast majority of my clients have little in common with the relatively wealthy, privileged Jamison aside from a diagnosis, and I doubt most would relate much to her story, but on occasion I try to force one of them to read this book.
Actually, a lot of the most annoying and boring parts of this book -- e. Being diagnosed with a psychotic disorder is terrifying and can be very dehumanizing. As I go back through blog posts, Twitter feeds, book reviews, etc. And how I was paying NO attention to that whatsoever. It was all about someone else. I just had the opportunity to re-read this book when it was offered on the Kindle, and I was surprised.
This was the first book everyone was recommending back then. It seems to have been written more FOR herself than about herself, if that makes sense--it reads as very personal and cathartic. Is it helpful for others, though? There are some wonderful passages in which she borrows from images in poetry and literature, and those, for me, make the book worth reading. Yes, she shows great appreciation for her loved ones and their unflagging support. That only reads as a compliment the first few times, then it becomes a sledge-hammer of obligation and guilt.
But these experiences carry with them feelings. Depression, instead, is flat, hollow, and unendurable. It is also tiresome. People cannot abide being around you when you are depressed. They might think that they ought to, and they might even try, but you know and they know that you are tedious beyond belief: you are irritable and paranoid and humorless and lifeless and critical and demanding and no reassurance is ever enough.
