Am bipolar and yes it is a real hereditary medical disorder.
The chemicals within the brain are out of balance, causing extreme ‘mood-swings’ between mania (can be anything from a mild ‘great mood’ to absolute psychotic behavior - it manifests in many ways) and depression (again from mild, just can’t stop crying to absolute, suicidal despair). And it’s not uncommon to have mixed moods where one experiences symptoms of both mania and depression at the same time.
The conscious mind will try to find a reason for the depression, but the truth is, it is only a chemical imbalance. -example: if you’re on a depression episode and pin it on something as the cause, then you fix whatever you thought was bothering you, the depression will continue.
It’s not caused by an outside influence or situation and it’s not something you can simply ‘go to your happy place’ to fix.
One can easily go have a great time -laughing and genuinely happy- and still be miserable from the depression.
Yes, many people are misdiagnosed and most doctors are just out for the money, but there are many who actually do have the disorder and rely on various treatments in order to simply function.
Very easy for someone without it to believe it’s bullshit and just an attempted justification to act the way they do.
Then again, it’s the same with migraines
It can’t be seen or detected with external equipment, therefore it must not exist.
Back to the subject of this thread
Bipolar disorder, Clinical Depression, autism, mood swings, low self esteem, blood poisoning, anxiety, relationship problems, social ostracism and bullying and general rotten luck.
Bipolar, clinical depression, and anxiety… I’ve been trying to find something (besides medication- that only masks the symptoms) to fix or ease the severity of an attack for as long as I’ve had the issues - they started manifesting when I was 8 and were in full swing by 12.
Autism isn’t so much a disorder as it is simply a different operating system.
An autistic child (any age really) can function just as well, if not better than those around them, they just need the right learning programs.
Autism is actually a form of dyslexia, so there’s another search term that may get you some more information and ideas on treatment and learning systems.
Look up “the gift of dyslexia” -I forgot the author, but it’s supposed to work amazing and I’m planning on getting it for my nephew that has Asperger syndrome (very similar to and often confused with high-functioning autism).
Low self-esteem, relationship issues, and general bad luck… I wish I knew, but there are many spells for these things, many can be found free online.
I like to go through http://www.spellsofmagic.com/ for ideas for constructing spells… there’s only a few on there that I’d follow 100%
Good luck and let me know if you get any results
