    You will feel so validated

    I can't turn back time but I spent the last 4 years on the wrong medications (antidepressants) and lost even more years of work because of undiagnosed bipolar. Not even going to talk about the internal suffering and the interpersonal and familial loneliness.

    Maybe it wasn't the right time yet to have the clarity and hindsight to see that, as I listen to this wonderful book, I had met all the criteria my whole life, in all of my life situations. It is SO biological; it is SO not a character or moral flaw.

    We have suffered so much for this disorder. But now I am so thankful I have clarity on my life now. No more cracking the code. I didn't ask for this. And I can manage it now. Read or listen to this book if you think you may have bipolar disorder or have been diagnosed with major depression and are still suffering in confusion. You will feel so validated.

    This book was really helpful

    I’ve struggled with bipolar disorder for 8 years. I didn’t seek treatment till year 8. I ignored the initial diagnosis but now that I’ve accepted it I’ve started to accept and seek any information I could find on it. This book was extremely helpful in understanding myself and my struggles where this illness is concerned. I identified with a lot in this book.

    I also liked the narration. Clear and easy to understand and well paced.

    Extremely helpful

    Dated someone with bipolar for almost 5 years, had I listened to this book in the beginning things could have been a lot better and guaranteed had a different outcome.

    PhD's writing books

    I have read An unquiet mind by Jamison and didn't think it was that easy to follow. Jamison and Miklowitz are psychiatrist, they went to 16 years of college, med school, and post-med... they are very bright and have trouble coming down to the rest of our level. Miklowitz book is a little dry and void of emotion. Yet it is insightful and he is quite diligent in explaining the world of Bipolar Disorder.

    Very thorough

    I thought it was thorough and very helpful. Some chapters did not resonate with me concerning disability and women’s health, but the rest were terrific.
