    The day after accusing Ted Cruz of winning the Iowa caucuses unfairly and asking for a rematch in the state, Donald Trump says he's now over it. "I'm so much into this, into New Hampshire, that I just — I don't care about that anymore," Trump said in an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper in Manchester, just five days out from next Tuesday's primary contest here. "This is the place I'm focused on now." These comments, made at Theo's, a popular local pizza joint that serves up specialty Italian and Greek dishes, were in stark contrast to a tirade of...

Migrants seek a better job market in a wealthier economy; refugees seek safe haven from being persecuted or killed if they stay where they are. One of the headaches Germany and its EU partners are suffering right now is figuring out how many of the many thousands from the Middle East who are pounding on Europes door are true refugees and how many are merely migrants. How will Beck distinguish between the two, and then distinguish the refugees from aspiring terrorists? He says he has a...

    Philadelphia, PA, 16 February 2011 - Lithium, introduced in the late 1940's, was the first "wonder drug" in psychiatry. It was the first medication treatment for the manic and depressive episodes of bipolar disorder and it remains among one of the most effective treatments for this disorder. In the past 15 years, as molecular mechanisms underlying the treatment of bipolar disorder began to emerge, basic research studies conducted in animals began to identify neuroprotective and perhaps neurotrophic effects of this important medication. The identification of these molecular actions of lithium coincided with the discovery of regional brain volume deficits in...

The research suggests that while it is still rare to prescribe powerful psychiatric drugs to 2-year-olds, the practice is becoming more frequent.

    In the spring of 1998, I publicly revealed that the orgasm is not the crowning achievement of my life. Having been bombarded for months with the spin regarding Bill Clintons most infamous national sex scandal, I felt compelled to make my own statement. I was sickened by the excuses. It was just a lie about sex. Everybody cheats. Boys will be boys. That depends on what the definition of the word is is. And my favorite; If I were Clinton, Id have done it, too. To which I quickly responded, And I wouldnt want you to be President, either. I...

    How is it possible that a severe elbow injury could be a good thing for a man who makes a living throwing a baseball with that arm? Answer: It made him depressed. So depressed, in fact, that when the elbow had healed, he was still unable to return to his team. Justin Duchscherer, a pitcher for the Oakland As, missed much of the 2009 season due to elbow surgery

    "Consider yourself kicked in the ass," said Pastor Bruce Edwards in the sanctuary of Allison Park Church - right after I went to him for prayer. I needed it, the kick more so than the prayer. I expected him to burst forth with a full-fiery Pentecostal blizzard of petition. But Bruce had other ideas. Bruce wanted to do even more than pray. Fortunately, I trust Bruce. In fact, I trust him so much that I revealed my bipolar diagnosis to him at a time when I was still likely to explode at any moment. I was out of work and...

    "Rich-ieee!" the gleaming Caribbean ex-addict sings my name as the worship music soars and pounds to start the service. We embrace and I can feel the crazy coming off of him. We stand back and I look wildly into his wild-eyed grin, yelping, "Yeah! God likes the crazy people!" And he yelps back, "Rich-ieee! Because we'll get crazy for him!"And I let out a cackling bipolar howl as the music blares. This man knows something about "crazy." He decided to get clean only after a drug deal got him thrown into the trunk of a car; driven into a field...

    A patient at a Massachusetts General Hospital bipolar clinic stabbed his psychiatrist during a treatment session yesterday afternoon, and was then shot dead by an off-duty security guard, in a frantic scene that a colleague later described as every psychiatrists worst nightmare. Dr. Astrid Desrosiers, a 49-year-old instructor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, the mother of grown children, and a celebrated doctor in the citys Haitian community, was in stable condition at MGH and recovering from her wounds, relatives, colleagues, and hospital officials said. Police identified the assailant as Jay Carciero, 37, of Reading. Relatives described him as a...

    I cracked up for the first time - on June 4, 1988, three weeks short of completing my Masters degree in Psychology. Some would say I had a nervous breakdown. The psych ward doctors said it was major depression. I say that I saw just how evil my sin is in the eyes of God and it scared the hell out of me. I cracked up, broke down, and de-pressed. I cobbled together some mad reality and blew a fuse. I despaired, decompensated, detached, and derailed. I lost my mind, never to be the same again. Thanks be to...
