A Can of Madness PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

A Can of Madness free pdf A vivid, honest and sometimes disturbing memoir about the experience of having a diagnosis of manic-depression. It was written using excerpts of a diary written at the time of the author's flights into mania and his descents into depression. Like other books in this genre, the author is often painfully honest about his experiences. He recounts a dizzying, dark and sometimes euphoric journey through a world of elation, despair, binge drinking, drugs, raves and psychiatric wards. As well as attempting to educate the reader, the book also provides optimism and hope, showing that it is finally possible to learn to live with, and accept, having a mental health problem.
