And yet, if you asked a hundred pregnant women to get the flu shot, you'd get at least thirty of them that would tell you that the flu shot is just big pharma trying to poison people for profit.

what bipolar is not (but everyone seems to think it is)

being an asshole in general
i get mad too easily
my emotions over react to things
somedays i feel good, somedays i feel bad.
I get randomly irratable
Im onyl happy when something good happens
An excuse for being a biatch.
anything related to anger really

what bipolar is

I spend 6-8 weeks ina  terirble funk so bad that i could win the lottarry and not give a shiat, im too sad to be angry at you, this is inturrupted by 4-10 days of a happines so grand that my mom could die right in front of me and i wont care! all i wanna do is dance, and bang, and do drugs, and runaway to live a better life, and i am far too happy to be angry at you. and it loops over.. and over agian in a predictable, repetative pattern with almost no randomness to it at all.

heres how to tell if your not bipolar... you get angry alot.... or your mood actually reacts to anything at all..

Pregnant women don't have to have the flu to exhibit symptoms of being bipolar.

Yes. Because everyone experiences everything the exact same way. Up to and including mental illness.

a few facts for you

Fact the only way you will get diagnosed with anythign but bipolar when you have a mood problem is if the person you are seeing is not jsut an MD or nurse practitioner, but an actual LPC, or psychologist who is ALSO being paid on salary and not comission, why? becasue a bipolar diagnosis pays int he way of 1-4 medications, while mood disorder is only 1 or 2.

Fact: disoder have VERY specific diameters, and there are MANY MANY MANY disorders most people dont know about that are similar but different than one another.

Fact: if your primary mood problem is over reactivity, or excessive anger response you ARE NOT bipolar, probably borderline personality, mood disorder NOS, Intermittent explosive disorder or some other issue, problem is borderline personality is not medicinable and thus the dr will not want to diagnose you with that.

Fact: you dont know what your talking about because if your "bipolar" does not fit what bipolar is becase its different than... you arent bipolar....

Fact: the mood repsonse of bipolar is NOT reactive.

Fact: if the reason you think your bipolar has ANYTHING to do with a bad childhood or relationship, your probably borderline personality.

Fact if you werent bipolar when you were 16, or 20, or 24, or 30,etc etc you are not suddenly bipolar at 35 or 40, just like IDD bipolar just IS and alwyas will be, it just does not happen, or suddenly occur  it is a life long chemical imbalance that is best defined as an all or nothing switch on your dopamine and or seratonine with either a long (98%+ of the time) or a short ( <2% of the time) cycle time.

Fact: bipolar is a MOOD disorder, not an emotional disorder PERIOD, mood does have an effect on emotional response however. imagine mood as the tune in a song.
 no different than internal medicine, a cold is a cold is a cold, defined by specific symptoms and parameters, if you have a cold but also am losing your voice due to swelling of the neck what you have is laryngitis, which is not a cold....

just becasue mood disorder NOS and bipolar are similar, and treated the same, does not mean they are the same.

there are bipolar 2, and bipolar with hypomania, but guess what, those arent the same as bipolar, and and bipolar 2 is so rare that i have dealt with perhaps 3 cases in the last 2 months and im still 80% sure bad parenting was the real problem witht he one kid, as for bipolar with hypomania thats perhaps 5-10% of the bipolar cases, regardless it is rightfully assumed in the world of psychology that unless you specify otherwise, bipolar, is bipolar.

meant 3 cases int he last 8 months

if what you are experiencing in a mood disorder is different than what bipolar is defined by, then you arent experiencing bipolar, but one of a coupel dozen other diagnosable mood disorders WTF is wrong with you because i like to assume your not an idiot.

if awesome is defined strictly by haexperiencing any 5 of  ABCDEFGH, but NOT UVWXYZ and you are only experiencing  ABCH only than you arent awesome , if you are experiencing ANY of UVWXYZ, then you are not awesome... its really as simple as that ABCDE +X = not awesome, ABCD = not awesome, what is so hard to understand? you might have sawsome, or pawsome, or flawsome,or awemonia or some shiat, but you do not by definition have awesome.

The disagreement in this thread is why the VA has moved away from overarching labels and now treats symptoms. I'm on schizo and mdd and personality disorder meds, but they treat for actual symptoms since I don't fulfill the checklist completely for any of the above. This is why there is so much disagreement over the new DSM. Human brains are mutating constantly and old classifications aren't as effective.
 
2013-05-09 01:01:33 PM  
The VA is lucky in its ability to do that, but in the clinic i work in insurance wont pay for treating X symptoms, just X disorder with XYZ choices in medication and while im doing a diagnosis  i know the difference between saying bipolar and borderline personality with mood disturbence is either taking lexapro/celexa/prozac+ rimeron/depekote+ thorazine/halidol+ klonopine VS just taking Saphris, +maybe a sleep aid. It suddenly becomes very important as to rather or not your experienceing either one, or the other.

When everyone started to claim they have it to excuse their behavior. Look at all the stars that magically got sick when they never had a history of being an ass-hat before they became famous. For them it is an illness of convenience to justify their poor action.

Yep, they're describing a slow-cycler. However this person is attempting to say the fast-cyclers aren't legitimate. Sorry dear, some of us do your little 4-6 week process EVERY DAY, multiple times a day. This also includes your elated manic periods. Our loops happen a hell of a lot faster. It is very predictable, on an hourly basis. When you are in that horrid funk, everything can set you off. It isn't random, it's the funk. The funk colors your perspective of the events transpiring and it appears like something random pissed you off when it wasn't so random.

You're not special, you're not a snowflake in your disorder. Sorry it isn't Best Disorder, we'll try harder at slowing it down to your tolerance.

"Work in" like the tards pushing carts or breaking down boxes for the compactor. If this person truly had a job in mental health they would understand more about bi-polar which their comments clearly indicate otherwise.

Being prescribed a medicine cabinet doesn't make you an expert in the prescribing.

I mentioned bipolar 2 at the end of one of my statements, i also mentiond that in the mental health facilty that when you mean bipolar 2 you call it bipolar 2 or when you mention bopolar with hypomania you say with hypomania, when you jsut sya bipolar it excludes rapid cycling bipolar, also known as bipolar 2 so thank you for not reading what i wrote, then telling me i completely ignored that posibility, because i did no such thing.

the EXACT same way that when a dr says you have pnemonia he specifically did not mena walking pnemonia, same general concept, but not the same thing bipolar  doe snot equal bipolar 2 does not equal bipolar with hypomania, does not equal bipolar mized episode etc.. etc.. etc..

this guy gets it, there are far more people diagnosed with bipolar than actually have it because nah your jsut an emotional asshole does not keep you coming back to the dr.

i diagnose bipolar plenty of times, but most of the time and i ena 90% of the time when someone says they are bipolar they are really mood disoder, IED, borderline personality, on drugs, or jsut a complete asshole looking for a convienient excuse for their behavior.

Really wish someone else educated in, licensed in and actually works with mental health would put in their 2 cents instead of a bunch of people with wikipedia, not to mention more people with decent reading comprehensiona nd willingnes to actually read whats typed.
