Catching a Darkness

June 1, 2007

For those who haven’t already seen the site, I’d highly recommend reading over Catching a Darkness. It’s not a site about bipolar disorder from a medical or academic perspective; but rather a brother’s recollections about his sister, who took her own life after years of struggling with BD. I’ve read page after page giving statistical information about elevated suicide risks, and I am aware of the thoughts that often surface in the whirlwind of my own mind; yet reading over Boris Dolin’s writings about his sister made this ugly aspect of BD seem somehow more poignant, more real.
