Manic Depression

By Arthur Buchanan

So, What's the Difference?

Manic Depression is also known as Bipolar Illness.

Like depression, people with this disorder go through stages of depression, but Mania or Manic adds a cycle.

Mania is a very "up" mood, over elated, over happy. Too much of anything is no good, and because of these cycles, people experiencing Manic Depression visit the two extremes of depression and elation.

Sure, sounds great to be able to be really happy and energetic all the time. However, with the elated mood, the sufferer will often talk rapidly, and become disjointed.

There are three types of cycles that people may go through during mania. These are Rapid Cycle, Ultra-Rapid cycle and Ultradian cycles. All of these show how many episodes of mania the person goes through a year.

Rapid Cycles are most common, and this means 3 or 4 cycles of mania per year.

Ultra Rapid Cycles mean that the person goes through episodes that are shorter than a week, a bit more often.

Ultradian cyclers go through distinct, dramatic mood changes within a 24 hour block.

Manic Depression Symptoms:

-persistent sad, or empty mood

-feelings of hopelessness, or pessimism

-feelings of guilt, worthlessness or helplessness

-loss of interest in ordinary activities

-decreased energy, a felling of fatigue or of being "slowed down"

-difficulty concentrating, remembering, making decisions

-restlessness or irritability

-sleep disturbances

-loss of appetite and weight, or weight gain

-chronic pain or other persistent bodily symptoms that are NOT cause by physical disease

-thought of death or suicide; suicide attempts

*If you or anyone you know experiences a large portion of these symptoms on a regular basis, you may need to talk to a professional.*

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
