Re: 'Bipolar Disorder' vs. 'Manic Depressive Insanity' Quintal

The current diagnostic categories are really recent. There used to be no treatment apart from APs.

With someone it lasted the best part of a year, he rarely slept and drove us nuts by talking strangely all the time and making all sorts of strange connections. And then it passed and he became a librarian.

Another had a stronger dose of it, felt he was 'on a thousand tabs of acid' (as he put it to me with bright shining eyes), swam the river naked and walked up on someone's lawn talking about God.

And someone else I knew just had what I would call 'pressure of thought', for want of any better description.

There was someone who assured me that the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party had put electrodes in his brain so they could monitor something to do with the CC of the CP of the USSR. He seemed really lucid/sane and quite batty at the same time.
