Format: Paperback
This book is an astonishing account of someone suffering from manic depression and the effects it can have on other people, family and friends. Nicola Pagett pulls no punches in trying to hide this terrifying part of her life. It will make you laugh, it will make you cry, and it will leave you breathless when she describes her manic periods. It is a real mind bender, but that is what manic depression is about and you won't get a better version of this illness than in this book.
Forget the medical books, this is the only true version of manic depression from the patients point of view plus, the devastating effects it can have on the family, and other peoples view of this madness. Nicola Pagett goes into such depth I have to admire her for her honesty in coming out in the open about this tragic period of her life. A truly fascinating read for anyone.

Always a marvellous & beautiful actress (in both drama & comedy) this seems to have been her biggest battle & she tells you about it in total frankness. How her illness hurt her, her colleagues, most of all her family and how she & eventually they came through it. However much you appreciate her talent she'll go up in your estimation. I'm like many people in that I wish she was back on our screens.

Diamonds Behind My Eyes: An account of Manic Depression 24 Dec. 2009
By SWB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
At first, I found the writing asperous and melodramatic in a way similar to Ms. Pagett's portrayal in "Upstairs, Downstairs" of Elizabeth Bellamy, but soon found how the style related how she was being overtaken by her condition;a book hard to put down until the end, yet a quick read. Ultimately, I found the book enthralling and educational; I am happy for the author's resolve and feel kindredship in the disorder depicted.
