Sample Book Insights:
#1 I was on many psychoactive drugs, and I stopped taking my lithium a few weeks before. I had my blood levels taken at the laboratory, and I had an unusually high concentration of thyroid stimulating hormone, which means that the lithium was wreaking havoc on my glands.
#2 I was determined to coldkick my lithium. I did a few lines in the bathroom with Jethro, cutting them up on a Pogues CD. I felt a whole lot better, and I went out and mixed and mingled. But then I started coming down, and everything turned ugly.
#3 I was planning on getting coked up again and planning an epic Marxist-feminist study of Biblical villainesses, but instead I began to cry uncontrollably. I was certain that my friends would never understand the philosophical underpinnings of my state.
#4 I have been on these pills for years, and I’m starting to wonder if I might not be one of those people like Anne Sexton or Sylvia Plath who are just better off dead. I stand up to take out my contact lenses, which are falling out anyway.
