Hi there Snapper.

> ..yes 'real depression and bi-polar disorder' def are brain illnesses or disorders- I guess it boils down to weather it- the said disorder is caused by exogenous or endogenous factors or perhaps a combination of both! who really knows

Many times, if not most often, I think it is an exogenous factor or factors (psychosocial) that precipitate and perpetuate the endogenous dysfunction that an individual is biologically vulnerable to. That is why it is so important to deal with the psychological issues that stess the brain. Using a combination of psychotherapy and chemotherapy is usually better than using either one alone.
