well frannie, seeing the word jehaovah in flames scared the hell out of me. I was a very brainwashed jws at the time and quite ill. I was trying to attend a votech type school, and i saw that word, IT just followed me around. It had to do with my fear of getting an education, jws are so against it. u know, i was suposed to be out pioneering and all. Actually, i needed to be in a hospital. At the time i believed the word to be real, my mind interperted it as jehovah following me around catching me doing something bad.It was not inspiring, it was so scary. I was very ill.
bipolar, well manic does not mean u are excessively happy, frannie, it can just mean u are psychotic.a person can have a psychotic break at any time. actually, the onset of bipolar tends to be later thatn schizophrenia. Most of my life had been spent depressed and i thought i was just depressed, then i had an eposide that was psychotic. Previous to the eposide, i had not ever experienced anything like that, nor since.
bipolars tend to be very intelligent and creative, & yes it is generally treatable. the problem being a number of people with bipolar really enjoy the "highs" (or enjoy the delusional world they live in) and don't want to take meds.
How horrible for you (((Wednesday)))! I'm still wondering why I wasn't paralyzed with fear over many of the "signs" and "sightings" that occurred to me, though....
That bipolar info is very interesting and informative, Wednesday....thanks....just curious...do you still have to take medicine or receive treatment for this disorder?
Wednesday, while I agree that bipolar is treatable....I'm curious as to whether the condition is curable or whether it can be a temporary thing, resolving itself on its own without medicinal or psychological therapy.....in which case, the disorder could possibly merely be symptomatic of the traumatic effect of certain activities or circumstances the individual manifesting these thoughts and behaviors was undergoing at the time, which, in turn, would make medicinal treatment have the significance of a "bandaid" applied to a suppurating wound. And too, this also makes me wonder whether bipolar is something that comes out of nowhere? Or is it the direct result of traumatic outside influences affecting the person manifesting these symptoms?
I decided that the "highs" or spiritual experiences weren't worth the "therapy" I was having to undergo in order to rid me of the "addiction" to the scriptures, Wednesday.....but I'd better shut up about that, cause I don't wanna give away the conclusion by premature articulation.
