I see that his post is about once you've had these drugs and had a side effect, the damage can be permanent. There's evidence this has happened.
Please don't throw that bi polar label around. These mental illnesses were made up to give reasons doctors can prescribe these drugs. They use a checklist to diagnose and give it a label. Some of the questions on the checklists are things like are you uncomfortable in crowds, is your divorce making you sad, do you feel nervous making a speech in front of others? Who doesn't?
In my previous reply I posted a video documentary called "Making a killing: the untold truth about psychotropic meds" that explains how this all came to be.

Defense attorney Daniel King asked Appel if Holmes was tested for drugs or other substances. "I saw no indication that he was under the influence of anything," Appel said.
Sources also said detectives put bags over his hands to preserve any gunshot residue. Sources told CALL7 that Holmes began playing with the bags pretending they were two puppets.
Because of the many problems Traina exhibited from childhood, his life included a number of psychiatric hospitalizations for drug abuse and for treatment of bipolar disorder. While his mother wrote that she tried everything at her disposal to get him the proper medical help, Traina at 19 died of a self-administered morphine overdose at the home of Julie Campbell; a family friend.
His mother told his life story and of the struggles with his illness in her 1998 book titled "His Bright Light: The Story of Nick Traina."
