learned that others feel what I do, I am not alone in this struggle
When Kay allowed herself to trust her husband with the truth of her illness, I believe she crossed a line that was the point of no return. She believed herself to be loved and accepted by another, but it was truly she who had grown into acceptance of herself.
The fatigue in her voice simply re-telling her own story compelled me to continue to listen.
There could be no better tag line than the title, "An Unquiet Mind," for it sums up the manic/depressive state-of-mind.
Kudos to Kay for taking the time to write something educational, yet so very heartfelt and, at times, gut-wrenching.
I know the story is personal to the writer but the presentation and story are not impressive. The book is more of a recount of her various loves while dealing with what appears as semi minor depression. There is very little detail of her manic states and all in all I did not learn anything substantial about the disease.
The end was everything! A true insiders view on real struggles that are all around us. Whether you're someone who's struggles in reality or you personally know someone who does ... this novel is made for everyone who is willing to see things from a different point of view.
I enjoyed the book and I honour the brave woman who risked huge judgement to write it in the hopes it will help her heal and help others.
I would recommend this book to anyone with mental illness or supporting someone with mental illness.
The author reads with passion and deep connection that only someone with first hand experience can deliver.
I chose this book because I was required to present a book report on a memoir of some sort and saw that Orion Carloto had recommended this book so I thought why not. And honestly I have never really read/heard such a beautifully worded book I loved it as a whole and if anyone wants a great read I would recommend this one completely. This is honestly the first book I read that wasn't really just fiction but real story with a bigger message behind it and I can't wait to read more with greater insight!
Back when my daughter was 16.
This is book is honest, painful and profound. Listen to the author tell her story instead of reading it and u will learn much more.
