I bet I've read "An Unquiet Mind" by Kay Redfield Jamison about 4 or 5 times. I'm not bipolar so I can't identify with alot of what she experienced but reading her book always reinforces for me the importance of sticking with meds and i think it's just inspiring to me to read about what she's been able to accomplish. (and equally as significantly, what she's been able to put behind her) Somehow it makes me feel less ashamed of having a mental illness, or maybe it just makes me see that things could be so much worse.

I seem to always want to pick it up when I'm feeling particularly equivocal about dealing with my own illness so in that respect it's become almost like a security blanket.
