There is no such thing as mental illness. It is a concept created by the Medical Industry to sell more drugs.
If people would be at peace with themselves and accept their changing moods - the world would be a better place.

  • You Must Be In Denial Or Have Something Wrong With You!!!! How Can You Explain All The Studies That Have Been Conducted With Brain Wave Activities, And The Proof Of Chemical Imbalances. You Must Be Stupid. I Can Tell You That Anyone Suffering From Bipolar Disorder, Or Any Other Mental Illness Would Disagree With You, We Live It Everyday! I Hate To Blow Your Image Of A Perfect World, Hitler, But The World Is A Better Place Because Of Medications And Psychotherapy. You Need To Do Some Reading Before You Go Shooting Off With Your Foolish Opinion. I Am Sure That There Are Plenty Of People That Would Have SOME UGLY WORDS FOR YOU REGARDING YOUR MESSED UP "OPINION" (JUDGEMENT)That I Will Not Write On This Website. WHERE DID YOU GET YOUR MEDICAL DEGREE FROM? WAIT A MINUTE, YOU DON'T HAVE ONE I BET!! BY THE WAY, ARE YOU GOD? THEN I SUGGEST THAT YOU BE MORE MINDFUL OF WHAT THOUGHTS YOU SHARE, AND WITH WHOM YOU SHARE THEM. I GUESS YOU DON'T LIKE PEOPLE THAT LEAD AN ALTERNATIVE LIFESTYLE, AND CANCER ISN'T REAL EITHER, AND THE EASTER BUNNY IS REAL. If You Can't Contribute Anything Helpful Or Positive Then Why Did You Post On This Forum To Begin With, You Idiot!!!!!!

  • The painful thing about mental illness is that those who will not admit that they have a problem and seek professional help for it. I am bi-polar and take my medication everyday even when I feel good. I am in counseling and will remain most likely the rest of my life. I have been looked down on, been called names, but all that I can say to them is, the only difference between me and you is that I can admit that I have a problem and seek help, what about you. The person who posted this tread is definitley in denial and it is sad, until he can admit he has a ligitmate problem, he will continue to hurt himself as well as the one he loves. Mental illness is real and it is a part of life. Accept it.

  • Come on people everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Its not nice to call someone an idiot. Idiot is a label like bi polar. If it makes you feel better aboutyourself to think u got a disease cool and the gang, if u think u havent got a disease thats fine too. If u believe u got a disease u can do all sorts of silly things and blame it on the disease. Take responsibility for your actions. To say that someone is in denial because they disagree with the medical model of disease is cruel. To date there have been no studies that prove beyond a doubt that there is a chemical imbalance. The jury is out.Homosexuality was once considred a psychiatric disorder (note not disease do you know the difference?). It is not nowadays, why? because the APA voted that it was not.Did you here of the psychiatric dise ase where slaves who ran away from their masters were considred mad? And in Russia if u opposed the communist regieme you were obviously mad labbled schizophrenic then locked up.

  • To Sean who said "There is no such thing as mental illness. It is a concept created by the Medical Industry to sell more drugs.If people would be at peace with themselves and accept their changing moods - the world would be a better place." This sounds like the same people that have the idea that they haven't found a cure for cancer because the drugs companies would be out of business." What a joke! Apparently you have not been around people with serious mental illnesses some that are so delusional they are at risk of harming themselves or others. Maybe you should visit a local Psychiatric Hospital and get educated from the professionals who treat those that are unfortunate to have these conditions. It is as real as any other disease but still does not get the recognition and care given to those with medical conditions by insurance companies, etc. This is 2006 you know. It's about time the stigma stopped for mental illness and compassion begins. True everyone can have their opinion but an uneducated opinion expressed is ignorance.

  • If bipolar disorder is not really a disease then all of the doctors who have done research and provided treatment must be very creative if they can just create a fictitious disease that affects people all over the world. Lack of knowledge and compassion lead people to try and convince people who are seeking help that they are being lied to. If you have bipolar disorder then you know that it is not made up to keep people on drugs. If I could live without medicine it would be the happiest day of my life but I know without it I would be a zomby in a mental hospital not able to be out in the community rebuilding my life.
