I have read this  bipolar for dummies book that preys on people's need for empathy and their willingness to evade blame for their behavior by gently convincing them that they have a horrible biological disorder and that it is easily curable by 'mild' drugs that have 'no' harmful and/or 'no' permanent side effects.
Instead of telling them that the research does not show that there is a biological disorder, but only a limited success with treating the 'disorder' using biological means psychotropic drugs ! and that there either ARE long term side effects LIKE LOWERED LIFE EXPECTANCY !


They called it manic depression at first before drug companies and psychiatry renamed it bipolar.

This stupid book BIPOLAR FOR DUMMIES DOWNLOAD coupled with the eager willingness of many psychiatrists to prescribe psychotropic drugs makes for a very dangerous combination.

There is much deception in psychiatry, from seminars sponsored by large corporations which twist psychiatrists perceptions, to free samples given to psychiatrists which twist their prescription habits, to constant and repetitive advertising by pharmaceautical companies which engrains 'depression' and other illnesses in the minds of those who are subjected to THIS STUPID BOOK !!


The widespread practice of labeling children as "mentally ill" and drugging them with potent, mind-altering psychiatric drugs is affecting our future and our children's future. 

This STUPID BOOK knows better on how to care for our children than we do ?

Armed with the truth we can spare our children a drug-numbing childhood and a label that will follow them into a drug-consuming adulthood.

This book written by RETARDS didn't inform my mother that told people I may have bipolar this :

 1. Psychiatric disorders are not medical diseases.

 2. There are no lab tests, brain scans or "chemical imbalance tests" that can verify BIPOLAR !

 3. People do  get depressed and experience emotional or mental duress in life

 4. PSYCHIATRY repackaged these emotions and behaviors as BIPOLAR in order to sell DRUGS.  

When people tell me "I have chemical imbalance",

I say, "Show me your lab tests"  !!!!

There are no lab tests .

Stabilize ? its more like lobotamize

AUTHOR: anonymous - (United States of America)

Using no medical tests at all, I'm diagnosing you as 'bipolar' Here's a prescription for brain-disabling "abilify" or other nueroleptic drugs.

I did this without any lab test,brain scan or procedure known to medical science? that you in fact "have" the "illness" implied by the diagnostic labels.

You're now locked into a life-time diagnosis, needing life-time "treatment". Meanwhile, I'll get life-time payments, either from you or from your health insurance."

Thats psychiatry explianed, or better yet "psychiatry for dummies".

It works like this:

Psychiatric drugs  cause withdrawal reactions, including the antidepressants, tranquilizers, antipsychotic drugs and 'mood stabilizers' (mood removers) .

Of course nobody wants to exist as a zombie then trys to stop taking them.

Then then the individuals condition grows markedly worse within days or weeks of stopping the psychiatric drug, this is almost always due to a withdrawal reactions. However, misinformed doctors and misled parents, teachers and patients belive that this is evidence that the individual 'needs' the drug even more, when in fact its caused by these chemical agents and he or she just needs time to recover from withdrawal effects.

Then possibly your subject to "finding the right combination of meds" when its the meds themselves that are making you sick. Labelling  the side effects new disorders leading to more drugs with more side effects ...

Like in this funny video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2UnJ4H8JLmM

Here are some links I found where people can learn the truth about psychiatry before they get sick from psychiatric drugging like I did.


This video is not so funny. PBS Frontline: The medicated child.

Excellent PBS program that shows how todays kids are being turned into nothing but unnecessary customers for pharmaceutical and medical industry. 


The Marketing of Madness is the definitive documentary on the psychiatric drugging industry. Here is the real story of the high income partnership between psychiatry and drug companies that has created an $80 billion psychotropic drug profit center.

But appearances are deceiving. How valid are psychiatrists' diagnoses-and how safe are their drugs? Digging deep beneath the corporate veneer, this documentary exposes the truth behind the slick marketing schemes and scientific deceit that conceal dangerous and often deadly sales campaigns.


http://tmap.wordpress.com/videos/    Lots of videos mainstream t.v news reports about people getting sick or dead from psychiatry

This Stupid book "bipolar for dummies" makes psychiatric drugging look safe and effective.

P.S   Bipolar is not a chemical imbalance, Read:  


My mother belived that stupid saying after reading this book.

Is depression really a chemical imbalance and how do antidepressants work? Do SSRIs really correct a brain chemical problem with serotonin? Is there a depression test to check neurotransmitters? Despite big pharma ads and psychiatry theory, find out the truth about antidepressant drugs.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KIjOZq_AUeE

Whether the drug is a sleeping pill, tranquilizer, stimulant, antidepressant, mood stabilizer, or antipsychotic, Your Drug May Be Your Problem reveals its documented withdrawal symptoms, demonstrating what this book doest tell you. Withdrawal symptoms  mimic the symptoms for which a person has been medicated in the first place, a fact that frequently prompts doctors to mistakenly re-medicate their patients at even higher doses !

"bipolar for dummies" (retards) fails to mention this.

AUTHOR: Jeanski - (USA)

If I understand your post correctly, your mother read this book and determined that you have bipolar disorder.  Did she then take you for psychiatric evaluation?  That's the only way to know for sure.

If a mental health professional determines you meet the criteria for bipolar disorder, medication is about the only thing that will help stabilize your moods. It's been demonstrated in the psychiatric research that bipolar disorder doesn't really respond well to just talk therapy.   There is, in fact, a chemical imbalance that can be stabilized. 

I agree 100% with you that we have over medicated our children. However, based on your writing style, I'm going out on a limb and assuming you're an adult.

May I suggest that you give the drugs a try and see if they help? If your mother is this concerned perhaps there is some basis to it. It sounds like she's searching for answers to your erratic behavior (if that's what she sees) and may have come upon an answer.
