Library Journal review


Sent to you by Jack via Google Reader:


via dangerous compassions by Laura-Marie on 11/6/08

I feel so excited about this review of functionally ill in Library Journal that I thought I would paste it here as well as in functionally ill's blog.

In addition to discussing physical illness, zine authors write about their mental problems. Laura-Marie's series reveals her experiences with bipolar disorder, explaining in precise detail what the voices in her head sound like. The first issue follows her pursuit of professional help and the question of whether to take medication and what kind. In issue No. 2, she describes going to her initial exam, her doctors, and her decisions about drugs. Issue No. 3 serves as an update, with added information about the types of therapy (e.g., dialectical behavioral therapy and somatherapy) that she tries.
