  1. uppy-downy mood-swingy kind of guy is so much more descriptive, humane and fun than “bipolar”… or “manic depressive”…


    • hi wednesdywalker
      i like that .
      “bipolar disorder” is after all a term invented by marketers – not scientists – to sell depakote.
      It’s dressed up as science and carefully designed to make it sound like a medical condition tha requires careful, constant vigilance an expert to maintain it within boundaries for life – effectively de-humanising it, and so, the people who live with it.
      Sometimes “science” pretends to know what only the arts can help us understand….
