I was reading some reviews of the book written by people that disliked This I Just Want i just want say that or a person suffering All about Us from mental illness theact that you know jamieson s ull CV and her academic struggles is important it s of a look she was wildly successful and dealing with this illness and she inally came to of a look she was wildly successful and dealing with this illness and she Noni Speaks Up finally came to with it and now she s okay and still wildly successful i also want to say how brave it wasor her to write this under her own name it does a lot to irradicate the stigma against mental illness and no doubt she met people in academia who had read her book but never met her and Handbags and Gladrags formed opinions that might be less than true she really kind of put herself on the lineor this and i have to respect that those things aside this book came to me at a very important time in my life hence i remember the date i read it so well it was recommended by a psychiatrist i really respect and i ll admit i was in the depths of a serious depressive episode so perhaps it meant to me then but the book gave me hope because i want a professional career i want to be well respected in my An Egg-cellent Easter! (Barbie) field and jamieson proved that it was possible that you could recoverrom the depths and haul yourself out she doesn t paint herself as a victim either which was my main problem with Prozac Nation she has this illness and she inds she can t ignore it any longer she doesn t blame biology or bad amily situations she just realizes that if she wants her life she s going to have to make some changes she writes academically but accessibly and she doesn t take the easy way out i ve read everything she s written but this is perhaps my avorite becuse it shows that you can be honest about your mental health and still be okay it s written beautifully and i go back to it time and again when i m eeling down even though i am not bipolar and again i think that speaks to the strengths of this memoir A lot of people seem to have a negative reaction to this book which I totally get I didn t ind Jamison a particularly likable person and this wasn t great literature though it did go down ast and smoothBe that as it may I ve strongly recommended An Unuiet Mind several times smoothBe that as it may I ve strongly recommended An Unuiet Mind several times I can t judge it by the normal standards that I apply to most books I see An Unuiet Mind as performing a specific and vital Renovations: A Father and Son Rebuild a House and Rediscover Each Other function at which I think it succeeds extremely well that is Jamison s memoir does a spectacular job of demonstrating that a severe mental illness can and does affect intelligent highunctioning people who periodically struggle with symptoms but are able to manage their illness and live Richard Nixon: The Life full meaningful lives and uniuely and importantly I think b An Unuiet Mind does an AMAZING job of demonstrating how powerful one s lack of true insight into one s mental illness can be Jamison is a psychologist and it s just incredible to hear her describe how her vast stores of knowledge about psychiatric symptoms and about her own illness were useless against her mind s conviction that she sine and not symptomatic and doesn t need medication It s just such a great illustration of how intelligence and knowledge aren t assets at all and might even be liabilities when it comes to understanding and accepting one s own psychiatric disorderAs a social worker I work with people who are diagnosed with severe mental illness mostly schizophrenia but also many with severe bipolar disorder The vast majority. «uando ho pensato di scrivere uesto libro l'ho concepito come un libro sull'a e su una malattia dell'u Così come l'ho scritto invece è diventato anche un libro sull'a l'a che sostiene che rinnova e che protegge» Ba.
