Bipolar Disorder

Symptoms / Diagnosis


Coping and Support

From Marcia Purse, your Guide to Bipolar Disorder
I was dragging. Things weren't getting done, or I was having to push really hard to do basic chores. Yet I didn't recognize what was going on for the longest time. This is what led to my writing this week's featured article. It was a revelation for me, and maybe it will be for you.

Introducing Bipolar for Beginners
If you need to learn basic information about bipolar for any reason, or even if you know a good deal but have holes in your knowledge, this is for you. The first in a series of "lessons," Introducing Bipolar Disorder will get you on your way to understanding.

A Study That Baffles Me
I just don't understand why this study on immigrant ages and psychotic symptoms was done. Can you suggest where it would lead? I can't think of anything - help me out here.

Bah, Humbug!
I wrote this installment of my online journal about 7 months after being diagnosed bipolar. I was sure I had Seasonal Affective Disorder then; later I figured out that wasn't true, that it was the approach of Christmas that triggered my yearly depression. Regardless, the steps I suggest are good ones for anyone in either situation.
