    Watching this documentary was a huge eye-opener. In Fry’s and some of the other peoples’ stories, I saw what I have been experiencing for quite some time. I just thought I was going insane, but now I know that’s not truth, and that I just have a mental illness.

    A tough story told by one heck of a storyteller. As we say in danish: Han er en første klasses formidler. (He´s a first class communicator). My dad is bi-polar, and I have lived with his and my grandmothers disease all my life. I hvae always saught new knowledge about the ways to treat or handle, or cope with. This gave me insight in how it is to live as bi-polar.
