Bipolar Disorder

A chapter of my Psychiatric Tales book. This one covering Bipolar-Disorder. As ever, if you spot any mistakes let me know. Feedback from those with this illness would be greatly appreciated. I've mostly covered the mania side of the illness here, because a previous chapter already talks about depression, and I didn't want to repeat myself. Thank you.

I'm learning a lot from this series. I didn't realize the manic state had such a downside. I started wondering if I might be bipolar, but I rarely am depressed or elevated without a reason.

This is beautifully written. A few more things about bipolar disorder: it may run in families, and one of the mood stabilizers, lithium, can destroy your thyroid function.

This is great, but panel #4 is missing! Seems the large size in flickr is broken.

Thanks for sharing this!

First they need to identify if the person is addicted. They have to talk to them in a manner for them to be trusted. Second is they need to convince the person to take the treatment which usually the hardest part of the process. rehab centers in indianapolis

As a sign of gratitude for how my husband was saved from Bipolar Disorder, i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
My husband suffered Bipolar Disorder and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because he was my all and the symptoms were terrible, we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure him. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony of so many people who was cured from Bipolar Disorder. and so many other with similar body problem, and they left the contact of this doctor who had the herbal cure to Bipolar Disorder. I never imagined Bipolar Disorder has a cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my husband will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my husband used it and in one months he was fully okay even up till this moment he is so full of life.Bipolar Disorder has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on drwilliams098675@gmail.com on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my testimony .
