Quote of the Day, to get through the day.

Thought on my mind today. Kay Redfield Jamison’s book An Unquiet Mind is a must read for anyone struggling with this disorder. Hearing from a woman who struggled with intense bouts of mania and severe depression while working for tenure at a major University, is amazingly inspiring and has gone along way towards helping me accept my diagnosis.

“It took me far too long to realize that lost years and relationships cannot be recovered, that damage done to one’s self and others cannot easily be put right again and that freedom from control imposed by medication loses its meaning when the only other alternatives are death or insanity.”

Seriously, good stuff.
