— On March 10, 2012 at 6:00 pm PST Andy Behrman the author of “Electroboy: A Memoir of Mania,” published by Random House will be appearing as a guest on the Runaway Mind Show on Blog Talk Radio.As far as manic-depressive tales go, Andy Behrman’s story is typical. His illness went undiagnosed for a decade, a period of euphoric highs and desperate lows highlighted by $25,000 shopping sprees, impetuous trips to Tokyo, Paris and Milan, drug and alcohol binges, days without sleep, sex with strangers and jail time. After seeing 8 psychiatrists, Andy finally received a diagnosis of bipolar disorder on his 32d birthday. Over the next year and a half, he was treated unsuccessfully with more than 30 medications. Andy’s suburban New Jersey upbringing, achievements as a film major at Wesleyan and a thriving career in public relations wouldn’t help.

Maggie invites us into her life during this very trying time and gives the reader an intimate description, through diary entries and family recollections, of a mind spinning out of control into the world of manic depression. Mrs. Reese shares with the reader very personal details in an attempt to
offer “invaluable help to families (in) understand(ing) what their child is going through — and to provide the hope that there can be a future.”

Maggie was a cross-country star, on her way to tackle the running world in her first year of college. A beautiful young woman from a loving family with all of the promise of the future ahead of her, neither Maggie nor her family had any idea what challenges lay ahead of them. Although hard to pinpoint exactly, her changes seemed to begin with her transition into college life (in the book’s notes we are reminded that “stress can be a major trigger for anxiety and depression”) and the demise of her running career due to a major injury. We see what seems to be normal freshman jitters quickly turn into the battle of a lifetime.
