Bipolar Disorder

Monday, July 7, 2008

From high to low. From mania to depression. From recklessness to listlessness. These are the extremes associated with bipolar disorder, a mental illness characterized by mood instability that can be serious and disabling. Bipolar disorder is also known as manic-depression or manic-depressive illness — manic behavior is one extreme of this disorder, and depression is the other.

The deep mood swings of bipolar disorder may last for weeks or months, causing great disturbances in the lives of those affected, and those of family and friends, too. Today, a growing volume of research suggests that bipolar disorder occurs across a spectrum of symptoms, and that many people aren't correctly diagnosed. Left untreated, bipolar disorder generally worsens, and the suicide rate is high among those with bipolar disorder. But with effective treatment, you can live an enjoyable and productive life despite bipolar disorder.

i have a theory about mental illness. it is caused intentionally by the species to create a vast part of the population that is disoriented and consequently absorbs all the skull resonance of the misdirected comments of the normal people. in this way language is kept from escaping into the environment where other species might decode it and form a counter measure. any population has a distribution of individual susceptibility to dislodgement. all the species needs to do is set a condition with a precise threashold and the population will separate into a disoriented, mentally ill part, and a normal healthy part. you can read more about my theory at my blog,
the tag cloud there, the mental illness tag, goes to this page:
