Jamison has Bipolar I Disorder, also known as manic depression. In this excerpt from her “memoir of moods and madness,” Jamison describes one symptom listed under Criteria B in the DSM for a Manic Episode: “(7) excessive involvement in pleasurable activities that have a high potential for painful consequences (e.g., engaging in unrestrained buying sprees, sexual indiscretions, or foolish business investments)” (DSM 170). According to the National Institute of Mental Health, Bipolar I Disorder is characterized as “unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks” (NIMH).
