The problem with these discoveries is that for people like me the news is soo new that nobody takes it seriously. Where are advocates speaking on behalf of manic depressives. I have been diagnosed bipolar type 1 and schizo effective since I was 13 years old. I'm 25 and a disabled veteran that cannot get benefits of medication without having to put my entire life on hold for a year and try and remain "normal" without any help. I have been hospitalized 5 times in my life and I have taken everything from Lithium to Lamictal. Now, when I cannot shut off my head what does anybody do about it? Nothing take away more of my rights. Nobody even believes that this is a real thing. MY family treats me like I choose to do things like finalize a divorce and get married again 2 hours later to a woman I just met and got pregnant, then they think I choose to go 6 months playing world of warcraft and not leaving my home. WHY WOULD ANYBODY CHOOSE THIS?!?! Please, somebody, do I need a lawyer? All I want is to see my kids grow up with a healthy relationship between us. I just want a normal life. My head is soo cluttered lately I can feel reality slipping away. Somebody help me please! I would do it myself if I wasn't in the devil's playground.
