I find it interesting how many mental illness threads are produced on ATS. When you come here you should expect the alternative view point.It more times than not is far from the mainstream world view. It's much easier to call people insane the to entertain these alternative views. One should keep an open mind and some of the more ridiculous threads are usually easily sensed and discarded.

Exactly. And if people want the supposedly "sane world", then go to another website that is for that. Why come here and disparage others? To elevate yourself via internet? If so, ridiculous.

It should be expected and therefore shown that the above stated more likely to be true. To come here for mere amusement in that way is ludicrous.

Just a little addition...

A new study attempts to identify the factors that make some people with bipolar depression more likely to experience treatment-emergent mania (TEM).

Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a mental illness characterized by severe mood instability that can be serious and disabling.

The deep mood swings from high (mania) to low (depression) may last for weeks or months, causing great disturbances in the lives of the person who has the illness, along with family and friends.

Drugs known as mood stabilizers have proved effective at controlling the manic phase of the illness, but treating the depressive phase is more problematic. Antidepressants, although effective for some individuals, can trigger a rapid mood switch from depression to mania, a phenomenon called treatment-emergent mania.

“TEM is a serious and sometimes volatile adverse event, and we wanted to better understand who was at risk for developing this problem,” says Mayo Clinic psychiatrist Dr. Mark Frye.
