All I really wanted was to die and yet each suicide attempt was a failure.To continue with my article on manic depression please press HERE!
Warning – this page is graphic intensive – please wait while it loads! I have no way of describing of what it was like to be a Manic Depressive (or bi-polar) which is why I’m using graphics to illustrate how I felt at various times.
I can, if I try, describe the emotions but it is too painful and I would prefer “show” rather than “tell”.
If I dwell on feelings, thoughts and emotions relating to this illness for too long I begin to be overwhelmed by "did I do that?" "did this really happen to me?" type of thoughts, so I consider it is safer for me to do my page this way. This way I won't be going too far "DOWN!" for "DOWN!" is an area from which it is difficult to return! Many times, during the years I was ill, psychologists would ask me to do psychology tests which always included the ‘ink blot’ and ‘fuzzy pictures’ tests.
With both of these I was meant to talk about how each ink blot or picture appeared to me and to make up a story which went with the illustration. Each time I enjoyed this because it meant I could give free reign to what was flowing through my mind and not feel guilty about my thoughts.
Until the last picture -!

Bipolar Disorder, also known as "manic-depressive illness" or "manic depression" is a complex mood disorder caused by a combination of biologic, genetic, and environmental factors. Manic Depression behavior is characterized by dramatic mood swings - from overly "high" and/or irritable to sad and hopeless, and then back again, often with periods of normal mood in between. Severe changes in energy and behavior go along with these changes in mood. The Remedyfind Bipolar Disorder section covers remedies for the following major types of manic depression, and includes prescription drug information on anti-depressant, anti-convulsant and mood stabilizing medications, as well as comprehensive lists of nutritional supplements and psychological therapies used to relieve manic depression symptoms.

(Manic Depression)
What is Manic Depression?
Manic depression involves wide mood alterations, with periods of both depression and mania. A person experiencing depression or mania may have intense mood swings and consequent changes in thinking and behaviour. The term that is professionally used for this illness is Bipolar Affective Disorder. Bipolar means sharing two poles (high and low) and Affective Disorder means a disorder having to do with mood.
What Causes Manic Depression and Who Are The People At Risk?
The cause is not known. Any person can develop manic depression, however, studies indicate that highly creative, sensitive people, people tending to be perfectionists and high achievers, have a higher incidence of bipolar affective disorder. Although biological factors seem to play a major role in producing the illness, a person's personality make up and or stresses in the environment may also play a part in bringing on an acute episode.
How Many People Are Affected and What Are The Symptoms?
It is estimated that 1% of the population will have a manic depressive illness. Environmental factors such as death, separation and divorce may trigger the disorder. The illness manifests itself with the individual experiencing episodes of mania or elation followed by low mood or depression. The number of manic and depressive episodes varies greatly from person to person and most individuals experience "normal" periods between their manic and depressive episodes.

    Bipolar disorder, often called manic depression, is one of the major mood disorders and is distinguished by behavior that fluctuates from extreme highs (mania) to serious lows (depression) interspersed with periods of "normal" mood. Simply put, a person who suffers from the condition is unable to keep a sense of calm about his or her life.
    Mania is a term used a lot these days (like "basketball mania"), but in medicine, mania refers to behavior that includes profuse and rapidly changing ideas, exaggerated sexuality, extreme gaiety, intense irritability, and decreased sleep. Depression is used frequently to describe a feeling of sadness. With bipolar disorder, however, the lows of depression are characterized by extreme hopelessness and a feeling of worthlessness accompanied by thoughts of suicide.

    Ups, Downs and In-Betweens: Manic Depression and Bipolar Disorder, One and the Same
    Because the terms “bipolar disorder” and “manic depression” are often used independently in the popular media, it is a fairly common presumption that they describe two separate conditions of ill health. But bipolar disorder and manic depression are the same thing, nomenclature notwithstanding. This insight and others about the illness are offered by Robert C. Risinger, MD , Medical College of Wisconsin Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine. “Bipolar disorder is the propensity to go through periods of depression and periods of mania, which is why it’s called bipolar,” said Dr. Risinger. “There are two extremes, depression and mania. “Manic depression is what it’s traditionally been called. In the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), it’s Bipolar Disorder. Manic depression is simply more descriptive. There are frantic ‘manic’ episodes and after there are also low ‘depressions,’ which characterizes the cycling nature of the illness. It’s the same thing, absolutely the same thing, as bipolar disorder.”

    produced a series of public television specials about manicdepressive illness andthe arts (and has talked openly and honestly about her own manic depression.
    In an earlier installment, What is Manic Depression , I briefly addressed the issue of manic-depression and creativity. Click here to read an extract from that page. I downloaded the following reprint of an article written by Kay Redfield Jamison for the magazine, Scientific American. I was made available by NAMI/NYC (National Alliance for the Mentall Ill, New York City) This is an excellent disourse of this subject. Enjoy... From Scientific American:
    Manic-Depressive Illness and Creativity
    Does some fine madness plague great artists? Several studies now show that creativity and mood disorders are linked
    by Kay Redfield Jamison
    "Men have called me mad," wrote Edgar Allan Poe, "but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligencewhether much that is gloriouswhether all that is profounddoes not spring from disease of thoughtfrom moods of mind exalted at the expense of the general intellect."
    Many people have long shared Poe's suspicion that genius and insanity are entwined. Indeed, history holds countless examples of "that fine madness." Scores of influential 18th- and 19th-century poets, notably William Blake, Lord Byron and Alfred, Lord Tennyson, wrote about the extreme mood swings they endured. Modern American poets John Berryman, Randall Jarrell, Robert Lowell, Sylvia Plath, Theodore Roethke, Delmore Schwartz and Anne Sexton were all hospitalized for either mania or depression during their lives. And many painters and composers, among them Vincent van Gogh, Georgia O'Keeffe, Charles Mingus and Robert Schumann, have been similarly afflicted.

    Manic Depression Two UB researchers seek the genetic key to bipolar disorder Story by Scott Thomas Photos by Frank Miller It's not what you'd expect in the Laboratory of Psychiatric and Molecular Genetics ... until, that is, you get to know this husband-and-wife team of psychiatrists. For the Patos, the genetics of psychiatric maladies-most recently bipolar disorder-and the country of Portugal-specifically its island group called the Azores, a thousand miles into the Atlantic off the Portuguese coast-are intimately tied together. Current treatments involve mood-stabilizing drugs like lithium carbonate and depakoate for the manic (high) phase, and antidepressants for the bottom of the roller coaster. But the treatments aren't 100 percent effective, come with serious side effects, and certainly are not a cure.
