Poetic and lyrical, this book was hard to put down. I thought I knew what BPD was all about, but this book opened my eyes to the difficulty a person with BPD has with drug effects and loss of energy and creativeness that is present in the hypomanic stages.

I have read several books on Bipolar Disorder and this is one of the best book. It really is amazing, Lamia Islam writes beautifully and from an interesting perspective as both a clinician and researcher. It’s mostly focused on her personal experiences.
