"And then the horror sets in. All that time I wasn‘t crazy; I was, in fact, crazy. It‘s hopeless. I‘m hopeless. Bipolar disorder. Manic depression. I‘m sick. It‘s true. It isn‘t going to go away. All my life, I‘ve thought that if I just worked hard enough, it would. I‘ve always thought that if I just pulled myself together, I‘d be a good person, a calm person, a person like everyone."
