I didn't want to talk to other students. Besides the fact that I reeked of cigarette smoke, they would know something was wrong with me. They would feel something from me, something wrong, and something terribly wrong. I was afraid they would see what I saw in the mirror.
Mental illness wreaks havoc in Margaret R. Crockett's emotional memoir, Falling in Endless Spirals.

Her eventual diagnosis of bipolar disorder, however, is only the first step in an uphill battle that finds her facing both the discovery of a brain tumor and the diagnosis of breast cancer.
Follow Margaret's astonishing journey as she navigates her recovery while revealing the life-changing consequences of living with bipolar disorder.
