Losing Your Marbles
But balance can't be found in medications alone and Forney also credits her success to therapy sessions, journaling, yoga, nutrition and the support of her loving family and friends. In addition to her personal experiences, she lists common symptoms of bipolar disorder, drug reactions and treatment costs. Endnotes provide mental health resources and references.
Forney is an accomplished cartoonist and her art expresses her turbulent ride with compassion and deadpan humor. Check out her illustrations in Marbles, Mania, Depression, Michelangelo and Me as well as in the National Book Award winner, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie.
