If you are in the public spotlight and need help with a medical condition like depression, it takes a lot of courage to seek the right help. After all, a lot of jackasses on public forums will bray and belch their scorn and ignorance towards you. Or claim that it is drugs or alcohol. Or state that depression is something that has been around forever.

I guess since cancer has been around forever it is the height of stupidity to get treatment for it. I guess since rich people can’t go through depression, they must all be drunks and coke-heads. I guess because so many people are so damn perfect that they get to mock those who go get help when they need it.

Sickening.

I think they invent new mental problems and way over diagnos. However, my son has bi-polar and I can testify his are not normal mood swings. He does much better with medication.

Seriously, I wish Miss CZ-J speedy recovery. As Fraser Crane once said, "Crazy doesn't run in my family - it sprints!". Been there to a lesser degree than dear Catherine.

First, requiring hospitalization pretty much bumps a person up from Bipolar II (moderately bipolar) to Bipolar I (severely bipolar), if I remember my DSM-IV TR correctly.

“Proactively? She showed up and said, ‘I’m about to go nuckin’ futz’?”

When you have bipolar in the family you will likely have to give your loved one the choice: “There’s the easy way, or there’s the hard way. You choose.”

The “easy way” is that I drive you over to and you voluntarily sign yourself into the cushy, coddling private mental health locked ward covered by your insurance.

The “hard way” is that I dial 9-1-1 and the EMT’s take you to the ER at the county hospital where you will be “Baker Acted” to the public locked ward with the collection of crazies and diseased that are found there. ( Baker Acted: a verb phrase meaning involuntarily hospitalized if you are in FL under the Baker Act...or fill in the name for the same 72-hour involuntary hold act for your state)

My grandson was diagnosed with Bipolar, ADHD and whatever the name of the one is where they don’t listen to authority figures....at 3.
OMG what an unhappy little boy he was, always just miserable. The docs finally got some medication that works, through many switches and trial and error, and now he is a different kid, a joy to be around. He is still hyper as heck but doesn’t ‘explode’ like he used too. He is almost 6 now.
I feel for anyone that really has these illnesses.

I have a bi-polar sister who goes from crying jags to an intensity that is just as hard to be around. She refuses to admit she has a problem and says the meds make her feel fuzzy. Not a good situation.

Sickening.

Glad to see someone around here who has compassion.

I can't relate to that horrible illness but I commend her for being outright and honest about suffering from it. I saw part of an interview where she discussed it and one of the hard parts was "coming out" and admitting publicly she suffered from it. She knew she was going to get ridiculed by people who don't understand the condition and she has come to accept it.

Thanks...... obviously these FReepers that I see touting nasty comments towards Zeta-Jones do not know anyone who has battled Bipolar Disease.

Someone close to my heart battles bipolar and it isn’t a laughing matter.

The FReepers I see here are not regular names I recognize. Come on.......... FReepers.... you’re better than that. Go look up what this disease is before you lip off this way.

Exactly, if you have worked with, relatives, friends, etc who are seriously bi polar, it is a very serious condition. She’s lucky if she hasn’t alienated everyone around her. I know of cases where they hate and are hated by every single member of their families.

Through my experience with my son and a co-worker, I know that different meds work for different people. The tendency is to quit if at first they don’t like the effects. But after not taking meds and figuring out that it’s hard to keep a job and/or marriage both went back to the Doc and found meds that work for them. (Thank goodness)

What you have written has given me depression, cancer, and addicted me to cocaine and alcohol.

A good friend of mine’s father had a history of mental illness and he does too but to a lesser degree. His son was bi-polar and ultimately took his own life and his daughter sufferes from it too and she is noticeably medicated.` She and her husband have chosen not to have children due to the likelyhood that they will inherit the disease.
