Jamison: Mania’s “a hard act to follow”

“I compare myself with my former self, not with others.

Not only that, I tend to compare my current self with the best I have been, which is when I have been midly manic. When I am my present ‘normal’ self, I am far removed from when I have been my liveliest, most productive, most intense, most outgoing and effervescent.

In short, for myself, I am a hard act to follow.”

― Kay Redfield JamisonAn Unquiet Mind: A Memoir of Moods and Madness
