I had to read this book for my Co-Occuring Disorders class in 2015. Basically it's an autobiograpical tale of a woman dealing with Bi-Polar Disorder along with her addiction isues. I cannot remember a single other thing about it. Like I said, it was required reading and I would never have picked it up if I hadn't had to read it for the class. I got an "A" on the report though.

Terri Cheney's memoir is a very accurate description of life with a manic-depressive. My ex-wife was charming, seductive, and a blast to be with when she was hypomanic just like Ms. Cheney. But like Ms. Cheney my ex-spouse was self-destructive at other times. Life was total chaos but always exciting.

Manic: A Memoir was very enjoyable.

This memoir is simply amazing. Cheney’s journey was one that kept me up reading and I couldn’t put it down.
The author’s search & demand for humanity and compassion with herself and her illness was hard earned. A memoir that is a glimpse of hope that we all need.

* **Definitely for anyone who loved Brain on Fire.
