Example text

Bipolar disorder more likely is the result of various blips in the brain circuitry that foul up the operations of various departments and scramble communications between departments. Although various areas of the brain are suspected conspirators in producing bipolar symptoms, doctors can’t restructure the brain to repair the abnormalities. Instead, they choose the less intrusive option of adjusting the way the brain transfers signals via its neurotransmitters. What are neurotransmitters, anyway?

Unfortunately, bipolar disorder is much more complicated than that. Yes, balancing brain chemistry is essential, but your brain doesn’t live in a petri dish; it lives inside your body. It registers what your eyes, ears, nose, tongue, and fingers perceive. It processes your interactions with others and generates your emotions and thoughts. In short, your experiences influence your brain as much as your brain influences your experiences. And both your brain and your experiences affect your moods.

I can’t get up. ߜ Even little things take forever to do. ߜ Nobody loves me. ߜ Everything’s my fault. ߜ Nothing feels good. If you’re lucky, the depression eventually burns off like the morning fog.
