Madness: A Bipolar Life by Marya Hornbacher
Madness: A Bipolar Life

meredycat, November 14, 2008

Reading Marya Hornbacher's first memoir, Wasted, literally saved my life. At the time I was suffering from a 5 year eating disorder. A year later, I was diagnosed with Bipolar II. When Madness came out I was extremely interested. It's a brilliant look at how mental illness really is and shines light on the extreme euphoria and terror that Bipolar Disorder brings. I strongly recommend it to anyone who knows someone with Bipolar Disorder or struggles with the disease themselves.

Sick: The Untold Story of America's Health Care Crisis---And the People Who Pay the Price

meredycat, November 3, 2008

This book really brings home the horrific problems with our health care system. As someone with chronic health problems, I could definitely relate. Our health care system in America desperately needs reform.

The Almost Moon: A Novel

meredycat, May 18, 2008

In this novel that deals with an intensely tragic subject (Alzheimer's Disease) Sebold lyrically braids a story with emotion and lovely prose in a dark, gothic story that will move the soul.

This book really opened my eyes about the different ways incest can affect someone. The Kiss is a haunting, touching read.

An Unquiet Mind by Kay Redfield Jamison
An Unquiet Mind

meredycat, April 18, 2008

This one of the first books I read after being diagnosed as Bipolar. It scared the crap out of me, but it also made me feel like I was no longer alone in my struggle.
