"tsundere," is a term used to describe girls that are cold and strict at first or in public, but becomes all lovey-dovey when they are alone together. *got it from animesuki*

bipolar is different from tsundere.

it's very prevalent in my mother's genealogy. My mom has it, her sister has it, my half brother has it, my full brother has it and I seem to have some of the symptoms too. (But I'm a man of Mind over Matter)

I don't trust the meds for it. Their trying to make medication for a disorder that they really don't understand the science behind. Besides, they do stuff to you. My aunt is nuttier than a peanut farm when she gets on the meds.

You'll find this with a lot of people as well. People don't like the side effects of depression or other disorder medicines. Some people dislike the side effects so much that they'll keep suffering the original symptoms to avoid them.

^ The meds are what kept my friend from comiting suicide.

Just because you don't need medicine doesn't mean no one does. I have ADHD and I'm not on meds, I learned to cope without meds so I don't have to take them. The medications made me either feel depressed, or completely different from my normal self. However, my brother has ADHD too and he's on meds, he's fine and can work better on them. It all just depends on the person.

I wasn't pointing to myself. I think you misunderstood.

I understand some people need them, but I still don't trust them. I understand that they can help people, otherwise they wouldn't be prescribed. In a way I just sorta hate our "pop a pill, fix the problem" mentality we're growing. I don't mean to ask people to share my opinion though.

^ Same here then. My mom says I'm stubborn because I don't take ibeprophen for headaches or pain unless it's really bad. Why do I need to take a pill for every headache I have? I'd rather just go through the pain. Maybe I am stubborn, lol.

I'm not, but it sucks for those people. I get depressed when I failed at something or get rejected by a hot girl, but I just get it out of my system by doing crazy stuff.

I'm not, but once it was thought I was (and I took medicine like Adderal for the ADHD, Zoloft for the depression (yes I think at one point the same time), among a few others). Then it was decided I had "PDD-NOS" (pervasive developmental disorder, not otherwise specified; I guess you could say it's a mild form of autism.) and I stopped the medicine (and have for a few years now). The medicines were nothing but a hassle.

I personally think that half of the cases are stupid because people are too lazy to deal with life. Therefore, they use medication to make it "better."

Yep I'm bipolar.
Major mood swings

I was diagnosed last year o.O

I'm usually very happy or hyper but sometimes, I'm really, really moody.

Very little things affect my mood.

Quite hard but good thing my best friends are patient people.

Bi-polar
Bipolar disorder is an illness bipolar illness of severe mood swings. It is also called manic depression. If you have this bipolar illness illness, you may have periods of severe high or low moods. These periods may impact your day-to-day functioning.

The high moods are called acute mania. They can make you feel restless, grouchy, or very happy. The low moods are called depression. They can make you feel very sad.

Some people can have a mixed state. That's when you have acute mania and depression at the same time.

Both women and men get bipolar disorder in equal numbers. The disease is usually first seen in adults 18 and older.


I was diagnosed with this when i was 16. I've been through various treatments for it and nothing seems to help.
It effects my daily life and relatioships with people.
I am not crazy
It's actually a chemical imbalance in my brain that causes me to lose it every once in awhile. It effects people differently.

Does anyone else share this problem with me?
What are your thoughts about it?


Duster, there are medecines out there that control it very well. i know bi-polar people and the symptoms usually hit me hardest. im mean literally, im the one who gets the brunt of the explosion. and theres nothing wrong with being bi-polar, usually means that you are highly intelligent.

You should not make such statements unless you know all the facts of the people with this illness, because your statement is not true.
I have patients with all values of mental/emotional disorders, and none of them are lazy. What I have witnessed, they can "go off" when a trigger is touched upon, but as soon as they have calmed down, (most times without medication,) they are remorseful about what they might have done. I even have one patient who is MR (mentally retarded) and she "goes off" quite often, physically attacking people; kicking, biting, scratching...whatever is in her head to do at that time, but once she calms down, she apologizes for what she may have done.
Laziness has nothing to do with their illness. The key is to find the proper meds; the correct doseage, and treatment to counteract and treat the illness. Some people can do it by themselves, but the other 97% of all bipolar/manic depresives can't.
