127/111 - Marbles by Ellen Forney
I heard about this book quite a while ago as I think it won some award or was on some best seller list for a long time. It's a graphic memoir of the author's struggle with getting to grips with her manic depression. It describes her initial diagnosis whilst experiencing a period of mania, and her inevitable descent into depression. She spends years experimenting with medications and lifestyle choices in order to enable her to lead a happy a and productive life.
Couldn't believe how long it took her to get to a point where she was okay.
I quite enjoyed this, I read it all in one sitting even though it's quite long. Don't have a great deal more to say about this, other than it was enjoyable.
