Bipolar patients live on a subconsciously self-controlled mental and emotional "roller coaster."
They rise high and take flight on fantastic hopes and plans that are nearly impossible to achieve. They generate excessive amounts of nervous psychic energy and soar with confidence and optimism. This is a manic state.
In a manic state, they see themselves as powerful or indestructible. They usually display high self-esteem. Bipolar patients become extremely talkative and flooded with ideas, require little rest or sleep, and are unfocused and easily distracted and sidetracked.
"Highs" can result in serious problems such as unreasonable spending, impulsive and thoughtless decisions, participating in unsafe sexual behavior and, often, over indulging in street drugs, alcohol, or sleep and other medications.
In a relatively short while, a bipolar will inevitably crash. After his or her unrealistic hopes, dreams, and objectives fail to materialize, the person sink into depression and despair.
We can all recall having a similar "up and down" experience. However, the bipolar patient has these severe mood swings to an extreme and on a regular basis.
Psychiatrists and physicians treat bipolar patients with combinations of costly psychiatric drugs that they recommend be taken for the person's entire lives. Treatment is supplemented with some type of talking therapy. Symptoms are controlled but not healed.
Bipolar treatments do not heal because essentially the cause of the disorder is wrongly assumed to be "biological" when, in fact, the cause is "psychological."
Bipolar patients live in a state of extreme "selfish reaction" and "selfish control." That happens to be true for all those suffering a serious mental and emotional disorder.
How symptoms vary, relate to personal subconscious factors such as the person's basic selfish disposition (angry or fearful), the specifics of the person's child-to-parent negative agreements, and the degree of personal selfishness and selfish reaction.
Bipolar sufferers are deeply troubled and in extreme reaction to their abusive and unloving childhood experiences.
They use hyperactivity as a way of avoiding and running from, also concealing, their ongoing negative inner psychological states.
As with typical incest survivors, they are experts at maneuvering and controlling others to get what they selfishly want. They have learned from their selfish parents. It was way a way of surviving their parents' extremely controlling, abusive, and sexually abusive choices.
Their range of emotions goes from getting extremely unstable or violent to seeming normal.
As bipolar individuals continue in selfish control, illusion, and reaction, they tend to get worse. Ups and downs occur with increased frequency, length of time, and seriousness.
About 20% are estimated to commit suicide. The destructive and self-destructive symptoms of bipolar disorder make "biological causes" improbable. It should be obvious that the causes are psychological and selfish.
As long as we keep refusing to deal properly with personal negative choices and realities and keep saying that the causes outside of our control, and ourselves we will suffer and never heal.
