Text Quotes
With grief, you have reason to despair; it’s a human thing  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) ‘An Unquiet Mind’ wasn’t hard to write in terms of the actual writing of it  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) Grief is so human, and it hits everyone at one point or another, at least, in their lives. If you love, you will grieve, and that’s just given  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) But money spent while manic doesn’t fit into the Internal Revenue Service concept of medical expense or business loss. So after mania, when most depressed, you’re given excellent reason to be even more so  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) Manic-depression distorts moods and thoughts, incites dreadful behaviors, destroys the basis of rational thought, and too often erodes the desire and will to live. It is an illness that is biological in its origins, yet one that feels psychological in the experience of it, an illness that is unique in conferring advantage and pleasure, yet one that brings in its wake almost unendurable suffering and, not infrequently, suicide  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) People respond differently to people who are grieving. They reach out. But depression is so very isolating. It’s hard to explain to anyone who has never been depressed how isolating it is. Grief comes and goes, but depression is unremitting  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) I have had manic-depressive illness, also known as bipolar disorder, since I was 18 years old. It is an illness that ensures that those who have it will experience a frightening, chaotic and emotional ride. It is not a gentle or easy disease  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) Psychologists, for reasons of clinical necessity or vagaries of temperament, have chosen to dissect and catalog the morbid emotions - depression, anger, anxiety - and to leave largely unexamined the more vital, positive ones.  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) You become aware of an illness by understanding yourself and understanding the meaning that that illness has in your own life, symbolically and, more importantly, quite literally.  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) An intense temperament has convinced me to teach not only from books but from what I have learned from experience. So I try to impress upon young doctors and graduate students that tumultuousness, if coupled to discipline and a cool mind, is not such a bad sort of thing.  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) There are scientists all around the world looking for the genes responsible for bipolar illness and major depression  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) Psychotherapy is a sanctuary; it is a battleground; it is a place I have been psychotic, neurotic, elated, confused, and despairing beyond belief  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) Mania is as bad as it gets. If not treated, it will become worse, more frequent, and harder to treat  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) We expect well-informed treatment for cancer or heart disease; it matters no less for depression  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) In some cases, some people do get depressed in the middle of their grief, and they really need to be treated for depression  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) I say I’m an academic: a professor of psychiatry at Johns Hopkins. And I write  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) A possible link between ‘madness’ and genius is one of the oldest and most persistent of cultural notions  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) Scientists have made extraordinary advances in understanding the brain and its disorders  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) There are a lot of studies that suggest a higher rate of creativity in bipolars than the general population  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) There is no common standard for education about diagnosis. Distinguishing between bipolar depression and major depressive disorder, for example, can be difficult, and mistakes are common. Misdiagnosis can be lethal. Medications that work well for some forms of depression induce agitation in others.  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) There are scientists all around the world looking for the genes responsible for bipolar illness and major depression.  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) When public figures remain silent about depression, there is a cost to the rest of society. Silence contributes to the misperception that successful people do not get depressed, and it keeps the public from seeing that treatment allows many individuals to return to competitive professional lives.  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) When I’m talking about depression, I’m talking about the more severe forms of depression, and I think that conceptualising as a form of grief is probably not the most effective way of looking at it. I mean, at the end of the day, people suffer enormously, and you want to treat it.  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) It is important to value intellect and discipline, of course, but it is also important to recognize the power of irrationality, enthusiasm and vast energy.  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) I believe that curiosity, wonder and passion are defining qualities of imaginative minds and great teachers; that restlessness and discontent are vital things; and that intense experience and suffering instruct us in ways that less intense emotions can never do.  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) When I am high I couldn’t worry about money of I tried. So I don’t. The money will come from from somewhere; I am entitled; God will provide. Credit cards are disastrous, personal checks worse. Unfortunately, for manics anyway, mania is a natural extension of the economy.  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) Curiosity, wonder, and passion are defining qualities of imaginative minds and great teachers...Restlessness and discontent are vital things... Intense experience and suffering instruct us in ways less intense emotions can never do.  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) If people can talk about having breast cancer, why can’t people who have mental illness talk about mental illness? Until we’re able to do that, we’re not going to be treated with the same kind of respect for our diseases as other people.  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) From a public health point of view, still the overwhelming problem is that people are not treated enough for depression; depression remains under treated.  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes) Lithium prevents my seductive but disastrous highs, diminishes my depressions, clears out the wool and webbing from my disordered thinking, slows me down, gentles me out, keeps me from ruining my career and relationships, keeps me out of a hospital, alive, and makes psychotherapy possible.  (Kay Redfield Jamison Quotes)
