Decreasing (my) Ignorance

I recently read two fantastic memoirs: Darkness Visible by William Styron and An Unquiet Mind by Kay Redfield Jamison. The former is about his dealings with depression and the latter with her dealings with manic-depression. They are superbly well written, illuminating and educational while remaining deeply personal and touching. I highly recommend these books, everyone should read them.
I had only tertiary knowledge about these conditions and though ‘personal’ accounts, they are authored by highly informed people and do a great justice explicating their respective conditions.
I feel a little less ignorant.
