I read Jamison autobiographical book, and I thought that is the most pollyannish version of mental illness I could ever imagine. She's a bit too WASPish for me.

I like books on biology, like racer. And books that give me good practical advice. And books that help me understand why I am the way I am. I feel if I don't understand, there is NO HOPE whatsoever.

No self-help books because all everyone is basically saying is, 'My way is the only way' or maybe a kinder way to put it is, and 'this is what helped me, so it should help you'. They can't help someone like me. They somehow make me feel I am responsible for the condition I am in.

I agree Bob, the worst thing about many manias is the reality that follows. Sometimes I wonder if I will ever be satisfied with reality again.

I hate the constant struggle. At 34 I am finally beginning to develope a baseline. One of the very worst things about being hyper-sensitive is being so pathetically sensitive to how I'm feeling at every single moment of the day. There is no break! I am always painfully conscious of myself!

It felt great to express myself on this thread. thanks Bob, Janice.

One time mania is not fair! And there is no justice for the mentally ill.
