Imprisoned by the sea with his son Icarus, mythological craftsman Daedalus constructed wings to escape. Beeswax held feathers in place, so Daedalus told Icarus not to fly too high or too low: the sun's heat would melt the wax and sea spray would weigh the wings down. Elated, Icarus flew too high--and fell. Like Icarus, the moods of people with bipolar disorder swing from soaring into mania to sinking into depression. This disorder affects at least 2% of the population worldwide, with genetics by far the major contributor. BP is a major cause of disability and can also be a factor in creativity; it often brings with it anxiety, substance abuse, migraines, and more. Treatment includes medication, attention to lifestyle, and psychotherapy that includes relating to archetypal polarities. Jung says, “It is not a matter of indifference whether one calls something a ‘mania' or a ‘god.' To serve a mania is detestable and undignified, but to serve a god is full of meaning and promise.”    Dream I am in a restaurant busy with people standing and moving around. I too am standing and have been given a seafood dish in an opaque glass (at first like a fancy stemmed glass for cocktail shrimp) and I slurp some of it down. Looking into the vessel I realize I've been eating raw seahorses. I continue to eat, one and then another, not wanting to be rude. They are slimy, room-temp, and gray. I look again into the vessel, which now is narrow at the top and wide at the bottom as if the seahorses, barely submerged in a grey liquid, are in a dark pit that I have to peer into, and I do realize that some of them are still moving, puckering their lips trying to breathe. I decide I cannot keep eating them. I go to where murky puddles have formed in the cement by the melting ice and crab parts of the kitchen's seafood prep. I assume the puddles to be brackish, or at least can provide a more bearable end of life for the seahorses, so I throw them in by flicking the glass. There are still more seahorses stuck to the bottom of the glass, my flicking hindered by its strange shape. People are standing and talking around the puddles now, so it's discreetly that I quickly flick the rest of the seahorses out, not wanting to be seen doing it and not wanting the seahorses to be seen in the puddles.  References Kay Redfield Jamison (multiple books): An Unquiet Mind; Manic-Depressive Illness; Touched with Fire: Manic-Depressive Illness and the Artistic Temperament; Exuberance: The Passion for Life.  Jason Thompson.

Emotions create HEAT in the brain... and when our brain cells are not healthy -- and are full of toxins instead -- this heat can kill brain cells and damage the brain. Isn't it logical that this would cause symptoms commonly diagnosed as mental illnesses? But it's not our emotions' fault -- our emotions are NORMAL and HEALTHY. But when our brains don't have what they need to cool down that heat created by our emotions, and they've been covered in toxins and disrupted by heavy metals, that's what causes the problem. Our brains can't cool down and get scorched instead. Tune in to EPISODE 20 (!) of Missdiagnosed to dive deeper into the true causes of mental illness symptoms. Email me! Hello@caitlinpyle.com

Utilization of antidepressant medications among children and teens continue to rise despite poor efficacy. The assumption in many communities is that these drugs are safe and a front line treatment, but the hazards are rarely discussed and severely underestimated. In our opinion, the risks far outweigh any established benefits for antidepressant use in children, adolescents and young adults. Patients and families should be aware of the substantial risks associated with use.If you are in a crisis or think you have an emergency, call your doctor or 911.

In a commentary published in the Journal of Clinical Psychopharmacology, Dr. Rishab Gupta (Brigham and Women's Hospital/Harvard Medical School) and Dr. Swarndeep Singh (Government Medical College and Hospital, Chandigarh, India) cast a critical eye on India's regulatory approval for the use of endoxifen for the treatment of manic episodes in patients with bipolar disorder type 1. In their article and in this podcast, they suggest that there are important deficiencies in the research that was used to support the regulatory approval. No other country has approved endoxifen for treating bipolar disorder. They caution that endoxifen should be considered as an option to treat acute mania only after a careful consideration of risks/benefits with the patient and their family and after providing them with a list of alternative medications.

Lithium is considered a standard treatment for bipolar disorder, but it remains underprescribed, in part because of its association with kidney dysfunction. In this podcast, Dr. Balwinder Singh discusses an article he and his colleagues published in the January-February 2023 issue of the Journal of Clinical Psychopharmacology on “real-world” clinical practice involving patients with bipolar disorder (BD) and chronic kidney disease (CKD). In their study, patients with BD and CKD who discontinued lithium use after CKD diagnosis had a higher risk for a relapse of their mood disorder as well as a shorter time to the first mood episode, suggesting a need for more thorough discussion before discontinuing lithium after a diagnosis of CKD.

If you're in emotional distress or suicidal crisis, find help in your area with Find a helpline.Raised by a World War II veteran father, retired two-Star General Gregg Martin anticipated military service. He joined the ROTC at the University of Maine, then transferred to West Point.“I did really well at West Point, and then I graduated, went out into the active army, the field Army. I just loved it,” Gregg says. “I went to airborne school to be a paratrooper, went to Ranger School. So I was qualified to do the commando Special Forces stuff.”Gregg loved the challenges service in the Army presented:The Army was a pretty rough place. There was a lot of drugs. There were racial problems. We had convicted felons who were given the option to come into the military because they couldn't meet the quotas of recruiting. And I just loved it, though. It was real. It was hard. It was dirty. We had an exciting, challenging mission. And I just loved leading the troops.One opportunity for advancement followed another. “Before you knew it, I was a two-star general and had 36 years active duty in the Army.”At the pinnacle of his career, Gregg was assigned to lead the prestigious National Defense University. “It's made up of five colleges; it's a graduate school for senior leaders from the military, State Department, intelligence agencies and so forth, to go back to school at the graduate level for a year and get an advanced degree in strategic studies, international security, that sort of thing.”Gregg shares the story of how bipolar disorder brought an end to his military career and launched a new one as an advocate for mental health.I have actually been living on the bipolar spectrum since I was a teenager. I lived about 30 years with a mental condition, not an illness, but a condition called hyperthyrmia, which is a near continual state of mild mania. You get an extra plus up of the chemicals, dopamine, endorphins and others that gave me overabundant energy, enthusiasm, drive, creativity, problem-solving, skills, positivity, all those positive attributes. It's a benefit if you have it. But the downside is that it puts you at a higher risk of developing real mania and real bipolar disorder.From my teenage years into my forties, unbeknownst to me, I was inching ever closer to mania.At a certain point, the Veterans Affairs and the Department of the Army Medical Board pegged it at 2003, I was 47 years old, serving in the Iraq war. They believe that that's when my onset of actual bipolar occurred.From Iraq in '03, over the next 11 years, my bipolar disorder was unknown, undetected, unrecognized, undiagnosed. But I kept going into higher levels of mania, lower levels of depression.Then I started developing psychosis, which is a combination of delusions in my mind.I essentially rocketed into full-blown mania. I went into a state of madness, insanity. I was over the top. Off the rails. I was talking faster and faster. I was out of control. I had these grandiose visions that I was on a mission from God. I had all kinds of religious visions with the Holy Spirit and the Apostle Paul and speaking in tongues, I mean, going to 20, 30 religious events per week. I mean, I was really out of control.I had hallucinations that when I would ride my bike through D.C. at night, I would lift up off the ground and I would be flying on my bicycle over and through the monuments in D.C.My poor subordinates! I mean, there's no way for any human to keep up with the madness that was going on in my brain. It led to sort of a rebellion on the staff and the faculty at the university. It's really hard to have that difficult talk with the boss who's a general to say, “Hey, General Martin, we think you have lost it and you have some sort of mental illness.” But what they did, which was equally as effective, is they started writing anonymous complaints to my boss, who was the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.We were very good friends, wonderful boss. He made the decision to remove me from command, gave me the choice, resign or be fired by 5:00 today.Then he gave me a command order to go see a psychiatrist and get an evaluation. Unfortunately, they misdiagnosed me three times that month–July 2014. I was diagnosed fit for duty–nothing wrong–while I was in a raging state of mania. Four months later, after I crashed into crippling depression, I was properly diagnosed in November of 2014 with bipolar disorder type one, which is characterized by mainly high-level mania and very serious depression compared to bipolar two, which is much lower levels of mania and much more depression.Then I went into bipolar hell with crippling depression, terrifying psychosis. The mania went away, and for two years I was really in a fight for my life until finally September of 2016. I got on the right medications and the right program to begin my journey of recovery.Once a person has bipolar disorder, you always have bipolar.I was in bipolar hell for two years from the fall of 2014 to the fall of 2016, I had terrible suicidal, passive, suicidal ideations where I was imagining through delusions, through psychosis, my own violent, bloody, horrible death. And it would continue to go through my mind like a nonstop video reel.A passive ideation can quickly morph into an active ideation, where then you develop a plan and you take your own life.I also did inpatient at a VA hospital for weeks. I did electroconvulsive therapy. I took probably 15 or 20 different kinds of medication. None of them really worked. I was a zombie for those two years. I was miserable. I couldn't make a decision. I was confused.It wasn't until about two years of this going through hell that finally my wife called my doctor at the VA and said, “Hey, this isn't working. We need to do something different.”After two years of misery, 2016 to 2003, 13 years of bipolar, we tried lithium. And within a few days, my depression lifted. It's unbelievable how the difference. And within about a week I started feeling like my own self, my enthusiasm, my energy, my zest for life came back.My wife and I made a decision kind of strategically that we were going to move somewhere that had abundant light sunshine, warm weather. So we moved to Florida.I have a license plate that says disabled veteran. Wherever I would go people would be walking with me or I'd be getting into my car, they'd see the plate and they'd say, “Well, what's your disability?” I'd say, “Well, I have a brain thing.” And they would stop and say, “Well, I have a brain thing too, you know, what's your brain thing?”I say, “Bipolar disorder and some PTSD, but mostly bipolar.”They'd say, “Wow, I have been suffering with depression for years,” or “My husband or wife has bipolar disorder.”“As I told my story, in short, to dozens and dozens of people here in Cocoa Beach, 100 percent of the people either are afflicted by some sort of mental condition or are affected by it by virtue of their relationship with somebody else. So it's 100 percent.”As Gregg began telling his story more formally, he developed a strategy for having a healthy productive life with a mental health diagnosis.He offers a three-point plan:* Biochemistry. “Number one, you have to get the biochemistry of the brain in balance in a healthy state. For most people that comes through medication.”* Therapy. “Number two, you have to work with the rest of your medical team, which should for bipolar and depression and other mental conditions probably include a therapist. So, I've got a psychiatrist who does the medication. I've got a therapist. I just met with my therapist this morning and they help you problem solve and think your way through issues that are complicated and challenging.* Healthy lifestyle. Thirdly, you have to live a healthful life. There are brain-healthy diets. You need plenty of sleep, 8 hours a day, and probably should take a nap. Plenty of water, lots of exercise, reduce your stress, figure out how to meditate. Gregg suggests anchoring your plan on a social platform of his five Ps:* People. Develop a network of people who make you happy.* Place. “You need to pick a good place that makes you happy, that's safe, that enables you to do the things that inspire you and again, brings joy.”* Purpose. “You have to have a purpose. The first question you ask as an Army officer is ‘what's the mission?'”* Perseverance. You have to have the will to succeed, to not give up. Recovery from a serious mental illness like depression or bipolar is not easy. It's hard. There are going to be relapses and you're going to stumble and fall. Between yourself and your team, you have to be able to pick yourself up and learn from it and keep moving forward.* Presence. “The fifth P is what I call presence.” Learn to get outside your own head to think about your own possibly inaccurate thinking. Develop a healthy perspective.Today, Gregg has a publishing deal for his book, The Bipolar General: My Forever War with Mental Illness. He contributes regularly to Psychology Today and speaks to groups about his journey and his advice.Gregg has a host of superpowers that enable his work, including an ability to do challenging things, to be positive and build good relationships, to find purpose in his life and work, to persevere, to feel compassion for others and a strong desire to serve other people.By following Greg's example and advice, you can empower yourself to do more good in the world.

Typically, Truth Tastes Funny episodes are stand-alones, surfing freely from one topic to another. However, response to Season 2/Episode 14 with Therapy Twins Joan and Jane Landino has been so strong, that I am bookending it with Rabbi Alfredo Borodowski - aka "The Bipolar Rabbi." Bipolar disorder symptoms can be misleading. Manic moods can lead a sufferer to believe they are invincible, that they are beyond treatment, rejecting bipolar medication. Further, as my interview with Rabbi Borodowski  reveals, we are still in the very early stages of mining the mentally ill for insights that can change the game in terms of treatment for mental health issues of all kinds.The Rabbi's work goes far beyond mental health awareness or even treatment. "I want the mentally ill to package this knowledge and sell it to the world. I want the mentally ill to be entrepreneurial," he says. "Those of us with mental illness have not yet bought into our own strengths. We are looking at ourselves like second-class citizens. We have to shift a paradigm about how we see ourselves. Stigma is not going to diminish because we beg for compassion. Stigma is going to diminish because we bring to the world our added value and contribution, and because we take our place as players around the table of proactive wisdom."Find Rabbi Borodowski here:https://www.bipolarrabbi.com/https://www.facebook.com/bipolarrabbihttps://www.instagram.com/bipolarrabbi/https://www.linkedin.com/in/alfredo-borodowski/More from Rabbi Alfredo Borodowski:"My name is Rabbi Alfredo Borodowski, Ph.D., MSW, also known as “The Bipolar Rabbi.” In June 2013, the Mamaroneck police arrested me for impersonating a police officer. I was hospitalized and diagnosed with bipolar. In the ensuing seven days, I was fired from my position as executive director of a prestigious institute and ridiculed by the press as “the Road Rage Rabbi.” My world collapsed. I then spent several months paralyzed on a couch with depression. But I persevered and thrived once again, becoming a social worker. A factor tipped the scale in my favor; I discovered Positive Psychology. Positive psychology studies the strengths that make us fulfill our potential.

Tune in as Bailey speaks from the heart about how bipolar disorder often turns her tone of voice into an aggressive one. When anger or frustration arise, it often comes out onto whoever happens to be nearby, although it may have absolutely nothing to do with the other person involved. She hopes that hearing her describe how bipolar disorder can often take over her emotions will help you better understand why people you know (or even sometimes people you don't know!) may do this to you for seemingly no reason. She leaves you with a simple challenge that, when taken on by the masses, will help change the world for the better.
