" I read this book fairly quickly, at least for me, in order to get through it. I had to be hospitalized for two episodes that I had, but my experience, while some descriptions of things such as feeling like hearing people as though we were underwater were relatable, are nothing as intense and extreme and self-destructive as Hornbacher's. I'm sure this is an accurate picture of her bipolar life, and she shares it completely. It's a terrible disorder, and it was terrible to read about it, but I'm glad she wrote it. There's lots of brain research going on these days, so maybe one of these days a cure will be found. "
