I might add Manic-Depressive illness as an Axis I, NOT Axis II - but there are MANY OTHERS as well that ARE treatable - you WWWWWWW are talking about a non treatable/medication affecting disorder that is rather common - in fact studies show that over 1/4 of "normal" functioning, rational 'adults' show SIGNS of a "Personality disorder", but CANNOT BE clinically labeled as an Axis II diagnosis.

I hope I've made myself clear - if not e-mail me and I can explain your misunderstanding/misinterpretations/misdiagnosis more personally and refer you to actually relevant reading material on the subject of Personality Disorders.

I think you offer answers instead of sorrowful remarks on a illness and i really respect a profs/med. with respect, i would listen to your comments on manic, because you lay it out there.it is hard to try and be perfect when you are not, you may look it, but it is part of our differences as humans, and makes us who we are in this life...

I have a younger sister who is bi-polar and refuses to take any medication for it. For those who want to debate use of meds for this, don't bother with me because you will never convince me otherwise. There are physiological reasons for this disorder that are not going to change by say psycho therapy.

In my case, I simply choose (unfortunately) to not spend time with her in public. It can simply become too embarrassing and too much drama. It is extremely difficult to deal with bi-polar people. The mood swings are extreme (thus the name, I suppose)and virtually instantaneous. One minute they can be happy (usually exaggerated happiness)and anything can trigger a 180 degree turn, whether that be displayed through saddness or anger (and again, the mood is extreme).

So I guess my bottom line advice is make a choice: persuade them to get - and take regularly - medication, live with the mood swings or choose not to be a part of their drama.

Good luck, my cyberspace friend!

Give me the name of some one normal that I can compare against.
I don't know any normal except for that guy that is in my mirror while I'm shaving, he looks normal but he never talks.

What we call abnormal was called normal at one time, until someone gave it a name and called it abnormal.

We don't give the normal an abnormal name until there is a drug to be sold that can cure it.

here is your answer:
GOD DOESN'T MAKE JUNK...

Well done, Blonde.

RESPECT!!!

But just don't lose your fire.

Hi, Divine!

Weelassy might be able to give you an expert opinion, but from a lay person like me, I can only guess that such men suffer from major inferior complexes as well as a lack of respect for every induvidual's freedom of choice. I think rejection hurts everyone, but distinguishes people by how they deal with it. If they turn on you, I think that was a good decision to reject them in the first place, since they must have previuosly demontrated that they do not respect you.
But then again, it depends on how you explained your reasons for the rejection?


One of my favorite types of men are the one who write to you with words like sexy, beautiful, all the usual ones. Wanting to meet you. then it's nothing but sex. Now i love sex but for me as well as others, on the first or second conversation their "generosity", endowments" and "prowess" are nothing more than what it says. These people don't respect any women. The second step to this one is a pleasant turn down in I don't believe so style. etc. then here comes. You look like a pig and are old and wrinkly.. I love it as i am neither. One minute beautiful and sexy the next a pig and old!!!!! There EGOS are gigantic and can NOT take rejection. Pitiful type of men. Not much good for but one thing.......

do you want me to go get them,lol
that is so wrong, no respect,and that shows some anger mang. problems, which goes with men sometimes, not really becoming either, sorry doll...

Is this about make-up?? Goodness we all have our faults and lessons to learn.
Blonde you are on the right path... and even if some do not remember I am sure we have all been on the same path ...or soon will be. Keep being YOU.

Thank You, by the way my father is French/Canadian...great-grandfather, is from Quebec..

you know your wrong for what you are saying, plain and simple, i was giving good advise of the nature of this sickness and you over analyze me and diagnose me as something i am not, and you want me to be nice, it is against the law to do this in America, so how about you be professional about this, and if i want your advise, i will ask for it, until then you are ignored bye me, baby...lol...

What is against the law????? I never diagnosed you hun. You informed us members of your illness. Nothing wrong with you having a mental illness (chemical imbalance). I have always and will continue to provide medical care and support to the less fortunate

Just have zero tolerance from chicky poos such as yourself that calls me a tramp/Hoe and B*itch.

Are you feeling such low self esteem about oneself that you gain immediate gratification through bashing and insulting me?????

You made a comment about me being a hoe/b*itch/tramp and told me I need to put makeup on....lmfao

Well sorry to burst your bubble I don't require makeup....it is all natural

I, being a medical specialist, have observed cases of maniac depression/psychological disorders.

With that in mind I would not want to further escalate your unbalanced behaviour. As I truly understand the ramifications that it can bring forth.

I am glad to hear you have an excellent medical professional ie: your Doctor friend.

Well BlondeIndian....I would appreciate if you take the time to review my contributions to this thread back in May.

Possibly your Doctor needs to titrate your Meds as it has not controlled your vulgar insultive nature.

Congratulation on your 4 degrees and community involvement. Keep working at it and soon you will match my 5....

Thank you Dorma for bringing that to light. I at no time when expressing my thoughts or perception of Blonde Indian meant to hurt or trash that member.

I however still stand strong and true to my convictions. She (blondie) EXHIBITS BEHAVIOURS of Narcissism. She is a narcissist

1. Excessive love or admiration of oneself. See Synonyms at conceit.
2. A psychological condition characterized by self-preoccupation, lack of empathy, and unconscious deficits in self-esteem.
3. pleasure derived from contemplation or admiration of one's own body or self, especially as a fixation on or a regression to an infantile stage of development.
4. The attribute of the human psyche characterized by admiration of oneself but within normal limits.


You say you are Eccentric with spelling? Well my dear you are not as it is spelled ec?cen?tric. No worries though Lassie as I too have many typo errors. However you are eccentric meaning A person of odd or unconventional behavior.

My deepest apologies to you and your family for having to go through such a horrible medical tragedy. I am sure your daughter loves you too bits and appreciates your womanhood.

Find it strange you felt compelled to call your (DR.)friend and ask him if you are narcissist. ALSO find it strange that he wants you to tell me I am rude...lol

Possibly Blonde before you throw insults my way you will take the time to read throughout the forums and come to realize I have contributed many thoughts and advice as a member here. Mostly positive ones especially on personality disorders.

P.S I am aware of the neurotransmitter Serotonin( the correct spelling)as I once wrote an article on the lack of it.

No need to call me Lady with a sarcastic undertone...lol.

Just call me DR.Barbie


my dr. is my friend too..I met him on here a year ago, he has met me, and he has seen your post, he said you were sick, and wrong to do that, so, go examine your own head for you are not a barbie, and i already called you on posts making fun of people yourself, so if you call me this, fine, you are known as THE TRAMP,now, by me...barbie dr,lol

LOL....Crackin up here you loose screw. My Nickname Barbie was created by others however DR IS not fictitious and something I will accept.

P.S You mental One... Please show me and all others on board where I made fun of others and please give me details where others think of or call me a tramp

no, dumb blonde, i made up the tramp name for you, it just fits you perfect, see your bragging again about yourself, and you make fun of a lot of people, I wish I never posted my personal business to try to help someone understand this illness i have, called manic depression, and you started picking on me first, not one word to you from me first, so you picked on me,ty, you make fun all the time about peoples spelling, one chic about bruises on her legs, many others, i have NEVER seen one post on anyone who likes you as much as you say, so who is the narcissists? look in the mirror yourself, barbie dr. lol, you are starting to look pretty ego driven yourself...TRAMP...THANKS DORMA FOR GETTING THIS ONE GOING, NOW SHE IS SLAMMING ME ON EVERY POST I WRITE IN COMMENTS ON...

blondeIndian I don't think wheelassy from Canada meant this to hurt you.
Where as you may come across conceited it is you hiding behind this front to mask your insecurities and pain.

I have got to know you and can honestly say I do not feel you are narcistic.
Have your words hurt me at times Yes, But You just sometimes think before you say and I know You would help others in need. You are not hedonistic Narcistic.
This would difine the man I am divorcing to a t.
Quite the contrary,,
You like me act a little on impulses.
safely to say.gets us into trouble..sadly ..You may come across at times as being this way on the boards but if one really took the time to know you more on a personal level one would see you do have a heart of Gold.
Even when you called me a Freak ..LOl
All is forgiven,saying this I am joking around..
I am just going to call you on it when you misbehave .
You have raised a daughter who is beautiful and in college ,
You had her at a young age....and I am sorry about your accident that caused a head injury which can result in damaging the part of the brain that controls impulses.\

Many things can bring on depression, mental issues ,
Accidents, traumas as in Post trauamtic stress syndrome and Just genetics.
Accepting one has a problem is the first key to success.

ty, i call everyone a freak, even myself, now and again, you understand me, yes i talk before i think, it is better than it use to be, i use to chew a few new azz holes in some, but i have settled down alot..i just get so mad sometimes, part of the illness, but i love you gurl and you know it, i need you to help keep me behavin, i like you to back me down, because, you will pick me back up after i fall, and you dust me off and send me back out there, indian chics are high strung too, that is a gene thing...not to pretty when mad...

If anyone has any experience with a bi-polar (manic depressant), I would love to have them describe them how they act in manic stage. (ie shoping sprees, high energy, etc.)

I have two very dear friends that are bipolar. They are medicated, so it'd take an expert to notice that they suffer from a mental disorder. They are not at all harmful to others, though some manic behavior can be inevitably self destructive and they can ruin relationships by acting in ways that may be harmful to any sort of union. It's generally important for people to be aware of their illness so they don't fall into a full-blown manic phase.

I have lived with this all my life, it is a horrible, disgusting sickness that robs you of joy and self worth, it can ruin a relationship if you let it and it can bring you to your knees in tears, it is a horrible way to live without meds, and can make you feel one way one minute and then change the next, i got in a horsing accdnt and my head injury caused my sickness and it is a bad way to be, but i live with it and have been very successful in life, and it is just a feeling of boiling water inside, with no way to vent..i hope that helps you understand, it is hard to admit, but it is life and not always fair, and we all have our imperfect sides, some not so pretty....

Well as hard as this is for me to write...as I never want to create havoc or stress for others it is apparent you seem to have personality traits that exhibit narcism....Are you still on your Meds Blonde???

I just called my best friend who is a medical dr. and he said i am not a Narcism case at all and he sad that was rude for you to say...I cracked my head open and the part of my brain effected was the eyes, sight, and my behavor fluids, seratonin levels, which i produce non at all...I never was deprived as a child, i don't act like life is a big game, and I have a beautiful 22 year old daughter that thinks I am the best mom in the world, don't change the points i am trying to convey to this thread... it is not funny, lady...
