This may be my favorite book of all time. I’ll miss JL’s voice. She has such a strength in storytelling and making her experiences clear and vivid to a listener. Bipolar I is a condition that’s not common for providers who haven’t lived it to empathize with. I’m about to start a residency in psychiatry and it feels like going in blind for most of us. Memoirs as open and honest as these are invaluable to us, helping us understand what the journey of an illness can feel like outside of the IP/OP soundbites. I’ve been close all of my life to others struggling greatly with their mental illnesses. Reading this, I felt less alone. Thank you so much, Jaime. I’m going to donate a copy to my hospital library.
What made the experience of listening to Mental the most enjoyable?
Thank you for sharing your story. I was led to your book by a friend that works with your father. My husband is BP2. I find stories like yours are always helpful to others who suffer from, live with, or should just know what it's like to live with mental illness.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Mental?
Your in-depth information on your lithium, research, and then delving into the new drugs was so very helpful and informative, thank you.
What does Jaime Lowe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Her personal narrative with inflections and dramatization where she knows it belongs.
