October 1, 2020 - Madness: A Bipolar Life - Marya Hornbacher Author, Professor and Journalist

“Madness will push you anywhere it wants. It never tells you where you’re going, or why. It tells you it doesn’t matter, it persuades you. It dangles something sparkly before you, shimmering like that water patch on the road up ahead. You will drive until you find it, the treasure, the thing you most desire.” –Marya Hornbacher “Madness: A Bipolar Life”
