Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

In Touched with Fire, Kay Redfield Jamison, a psychiatrist, turned a mirror on the creativity so often associated with mental illness. In this book she turns that mirror on herself. With breathtaking honesty she tells of her own manic depression, the bitter costs of her illness, and its paradoxical benefits: "There is a particular kind of pain, elation, loneliness and terror involved in this kind of madness.... It will never end, for madness carves its own reality." This is one of the best scientific autobiographies ever written, a combination of clarity, truth, and insight into human character. "We are all, as Byron put it, differently organized," Jamison writes. "We each move within the restraints of our temperament and live up only partially to its possibilities." Jamison's ability to live fully within her limitations is an inspiration to her fellow mortals, whatever our particular burdens may be. --Mary Ellen Curtin -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Format: Taschenbuch
Scouring the bookshelves for something, anything regarding the topic of bipolar illness, I came across Dr. Jamison's brilliant memoir. I had recently been diagnosed with rapid cycling bipolar and was unsure of how that would effect my life. I had always been moody and eccentric, how would I learn to live without those highs? How would I get used to losing the endless nights of various projects and explorations. Everything is brighter when you're manic and everything is more enjoyable. Surely I could endure the depressions just to experience the highs. However, when I read Dr. Jamison's book I saw myself reflected in the pages. Things escalate when you're bipolar, and much of the time you have no idea what you are doing or how you appear to others. Dr. Jamison describes the mania with precision. Her words are chilling to the reader who knows exactly what a manic episode is like. She is also very firm in her standing on treatment for bipolars. She advocates a combined approach of psychotherapy and medication. Her arguments are solid and helpful for the family and friends of a person living with bipolar. The novel is well written, informative, and enjoyable. I am filled with awe for Dr. Jamison because she has done so much for those of us living with bipolar disorder. She has inspired me personally because she is such a brilliant woman. This memoir belongs on everyone's shelf who is interested or involved in bipolar disorder.

Format: Taschenbuch
Over the past 20 years I've had several friends who suffered from manic-depressive illnesses. It's abundantly clear to me that the disease is primarily biochemical and "not their fault." But I had trouble understanding why these people refused to take their medication (or stopped taking it after they started) and otherwise engaged in massive denial. Jamison's frank and well-written book was a revelation: now I feel I have a better sense of the seductiveness of mania, and why creative, intelligent people are often willing to risk the lows of their illness for the sake of the highs. As Jamison points out emphatically, however, the long-term effects of bipolar disorder can be devastating mentally and physically (not to mention the financial and personal fallout) -- hence her crusade to understand the basis of the illness, and learn how to fine-tune the medication so that the sufferer achieves equilibrium without deadening the sensitivity and creativity that often accompany this disease. I'd already read "Night Falls Fast," which is also excellent, but this book set out the personal story behind Jamison's research interests. While she insists that love alone won't cure the disease, it's also clear that, without the love of her loyal friends, this intelligent, talented, and articulate woman might never have made it through the more difficult years, let alone become a respected authority in her profession. Anyone who suffers from bipolar disorders, and those who love them, should read this book.

I am the webowner of Bipolar Disorder Sanctuary ... and also of the Borderline Personality Disorder Sanctuary. I also suffer from both disorders. I just finished reading Jamison's very moving autobiography about living with bipolar disorder. I could not only relate to much of it; but it provided much comfort to me reading about someone who has endured the "depths of hell" as I have. I believe her book is a huge step forward for this painful and deadly disorder. The more people that come forward about their illnesses, the more society will stop stigmatizing people and understand the illness for what it is - a medical, genetic disorder. We didn't ask for it. We don't deserve it. Kay discusses the risk she took in making her disorder public as this is still a pioneering time in public opinion and understanding about mental illness. I admire her for coming forward and I feel that this book will help many people. It is always a relief realizing that I am not alone with my own mental illnesses. I really don't think anyone could possibly understand just what it feels like to have this disorder, except another person with the same disorder. We are all different, yet we are the same. I recommend this book not only to bipolars, but to families, clinicians and anyone who is curious about the BP. Also, I would feel much more comfortable being seen by a psychiatrist who has the BP than one that doesn't, wouldn't you? Excellent book. Good job Kay.

I would like to recommend an excellent book for those living with bipolar illness as well as for their family and friends. I had thought until I read this book that Patty Duke Austin's "BRILLIANT MADNESS" was the best book to recommend, and it still is a good one, but "An Unquiet Mind" is such a good read I was unable to put it down and my wife to follow. I've been diagnosed as bipolar Type I since 1994 and not until I read this book did I feel someone had a grasp of what it is like to live with this illness. Having been a neuropsychiatric technician for 14 years, I knew what the illness looked like from the outside but when it hit me it wasn't until I came out of the tailspin on lithium and now depakote (divalproex sodium) that life is on an even keel. It took the loss of an 18 year marriage, my career in the service, near financial ruin, and the love and care of friends and family, to get me through the worst of it. My hat is off to the clinicians, support groups, and medications that got me here to 1998 to celebrate my 45th birthday. Thank God the whole team was there when I needed them most, yet fought with them the hardest, to avoid whatever they had to offer. This book is such a parallel to my experiences that I heartily recommend it to those coping, or not coping, with the illness of manic depression.
