It's a pretty quick read which I would highly recommend. Interestingly, it was recommended to me at different times by 2 different Ts, who recommended it to me for entirely different reasons. T #1 (who was also my pdoc) thought I would identify with her descriptions of trying to hold a professional career together in the midst of mental illness, and maybe also because of the way we both struggled with reconciling ourselves to the meds for life regimen. T #2 suggested it because Jamison goes into a lot of detail about all of the gruesome thoughts she'd have when most depressed. I think she wanted me to feel less ashamed of my own thoughts.

The point is that I think even though this woman had endless amounts of talent and intelligence which stood her in very good stead, there's still alot in her story that can resonate for those of us who are far more mortal and whose dxs are not as serious.

I also think it would probably mean even more to you because of your career similarities.
