How Dangerous Is Bipolar Anxiety?

Recommended Posts


Bi-polar people have a much greater chance of kiling themselves than non bi-polar people. They may run wild in the manic state and when they come down and see the carnage they may get very depressed and want to off themselves. They tend to go from manic to depressed states. It used to be before drug therapy that manic people would actually die from exhaustion.

"You just have to follow your doctor’s advice and positively motivate yourself to get rid of bipolar anxiety."

Well, gee whizz, and all this time all I had to do was to "positively motivate myself"!


So my manic phases and my deep-down-in-the-ditch-of-life depression is all curable by "thinking positive thoughts"?

So, I think I'll just quit taking the medication that's been prescribed for me, and, instead, sit around with a silly-assed grin on my face until I pull out that .45 ACP and EAT THE BARREL!!!!

some of the crap that you read, some of the "experts" that write this stuff should be held accountable for the damage that they do, the deaths that they cause.............but, it ain't happening because we, as a society, want to be made to "feel good about ourselves". After all, all you have to do to overcome Major Depression and Mania is to "positively motivate yourself"!

Hey, you folks are now looking at a NEW ME......positively motivated to the height of motivation..........so positively motivated that I coulds just shit!

The word maniac comes from people who were in severe manic states. These are the people they used to chain to the wall in mental institutions before the advent of drug therapy. Telling an anxious person to motivate themselves is like telling a severely depressed person to "cheer up". Emotional illness is still so misunderstood it ranks up there with the moral judgements even doctors make about people with chronic pain. People who suffer from certain groups of diseases are often blamed for their own illness. In years to come other generations will look back on us and think we were barbarians.

For many yrs they just treated my bipolar with Paxil or Zoloft. It made me psychotic & spend most of my days working out how to end my life. I would go 3 days without sleeping sometimes. Was thinking I was completely insane and so was my wife.

I tried for over a decade to get VA nurses & PA's to do something about it, but it wasn't until I found a psychiatrist that knew about meds, prescribed depacote and cut out all the crap that was killing me.

I hope I never have to go back to what I was like in the past. Still don't have a perfict sleeping pattern or go completely without depression, but it's far better that what I used to be like.

Can we get by with just a good attitude? That's pure BS.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
