Bipolar, Manic Depressive…the Harm of the Diagnosis

By Laura Turner

Starry NightWhy did the mental health experts change the clinical diagnosis from manic/depressive to bi-polar? A ‘wacked out’ human cycling between extremes is still a ‘wacked-out’ human.  The pain didn’t go away with the new name. Treatment success rate didn’t get any better with the name change.  A wacked-out and suffering human by any other name still stinks!
The problem with any so called mental disorder is that naming it doesn’t help.  In fact, other than providing a starting place for strengthening purposes, a diagnosis only hinders.
So, one of the first of orders of business with any mental, spiritual and or physical reaction that a person is having to his life is to separate the poor bastard from the diagnosis, ‘poor bastard’ being non gender specific.
In general, if a diagnosis doesn’t immediately make a person better, we need to get rid of the effects of everything attached to that diagnosis of the person and all who are privy to it.
Diagnoses, in general, weaken.  They do not strengthen.  So you make the individual with the diagnosis of bipolar or manic depressive strong to the diagnosis and separate the person from the energy of all others who carry this label.
Along with a diagnosis comes the baggage of much misinformation—the more studies, the more baggage. The more you read about the diagnosis, the worse it gets. You find out there are pre-conditions and pre-pre-conditions ad infinitum. Finding all the symptoms to a diagnosis and insisting something is the problem when it most definitely is not makes the problem so much worse.  Insisting you are bipolar, having your family or a doctor insist you are bipolar is weakening beyond anything imaginable.
The fact is, imagination pretty much shuts down with insistence, along with intuition and logical thinking, so that no real source of truth to the discomfort a person is having can be accessed.  It is by getting to the source of the symptom that you relieve the symptom.
A medical diagnosis is never a direct path to the source.  It is a direct path to meds which further weaken. it is a direct path to a prognosis that is carried to the grave and beyond.  Diagnose a person Bipolar and you weaken the offspring and the ancestors.
This is the age of information and misinformation.  At the touch of our fingertips is easy access to both.  Sad to say, there’s more misinformation out there, than information.  And misdiagnoses abound!
In the case of bipolar and most mental diseases, diagnosis is based on the self-reported experiences of an individual, as well as so-called abnormalities in behavior reported by family members, friends or co-workers.  First strike diagnosis is then followed up with ‘analysis’ by a psychiatrist, nurse, social worker, clinical psychologist or other clinician in a clinical assessment.
As soon as a person gets saddled with a mental health diagnosis, the whole family along with his friends and co-workers jump on his back and ride.  They begin to expect certain things out of this person and, lo and behold,  they find them whether they are there or not.  This further serves to lock a diagnosed person into behavior patterns, not to mention creates the problem of being watched. ( Test for being watched weakness. If you find it, delete the cumulative effect and apply it to the pentagon.)
People who expect certain behavior patterns from themselves or others, leave very little room for a different behavior from themselves or others. They only notice the behaviors that fit the diagnosis box. A person with a diagnosis has ‘bad’ things to watch out for–like not sleeping or showing small signs of excitement, for example. (Test for sleeping/not sleeping weakness. If found, make all concerned strong for having no reaction to not sleeping and no reaction to sleeping.)
A simple thing like not sleeping gets blown out of proportion in the mind and can trigger every behavior associated with past episodes diagnoses as manic or depressive.  The fact is, family members and friends get trained to watch for the slightest divergences from the norm and aren’t strong with different behavior from this person.
Strengthen all family members, loved ones and co-workers to the weakness of this poor bastard with any mental health diagnosis acting or behaving differently, and strengthen them to the person not changing.  People around a person with a mental disorder are often as ‘wacked out’ as the person exhibiting the so called symptoms.  They sometimes purposely bring them on (consciously or non-consciously) thus creating a vicious cycle.
So you make the person who is diagnosed as manic-depressive or bipolar strong to the misinformation about his condition and all medical misinformation in general, then apply the pentagon.  You make the person strong to expectations from others and strong to expectations he has about himself.  Test for weaknesses in the awareness triad (subconscious, conscious and nonconscious) and strengthen.
If you do not perceive a change in the person with the diagnosis, test for perception weakness.  How do you test? Use your intuition–the subject of another day.
