Marya Hornbacher

And so I am feeling numb. It’s a curious feeling, and I get it all the time. My attention to the world around me disappears, and something starts to hum inside my head. Far off, voices try to bump up against me, but I repel them. My ears fill up with water and I focus on the humming in my head. — Marya Hornbacher, Madness: A Bipolar Life. (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt; First Edition edition April 9, 2008)
