    I discovered Darian Leader belatedly about a year ago and he’s definitely become a favorite He has a great psychoanalytic gift for interpreting symptoms I love the clarity of his writing His hostility to biological approaches is unnecessary and offhand and is a repeating flaw in his work

    Strictly Bipolar by Darian Leader discusses primarily the rebranding of manic depression into bipolar disorder at the end of the 90ies but through this rebranding Leader actually also analyses our overmedicated society Leader reviews how this change in name but also how marketing have transformed the earlier approach into a drug heavy approach focusing only on drugs and the fine tuning of these drugsTo take his words there is an elephant i

Ending sprees and the intense feeling of connection with the world Why the confidence the self esteem and the sense of a bright future that can so swiftly turn into despair and dejectionOnly by looking at these uestions in a new way will we be able to understand and help the person caught between feelings that can be so terrifying and so exhilarating so life affirming yet also so leth. As a person person with Bipolar I was at first optimistic about this book Having now read it I think it s one of the most dangerous ignorant and insulting pieces of writing on the topic To make it clear I think you should not buy this book Not unless you re an ableist ignorant fool who wants to read a piece of Bipolar denial I normally would say in a review that a book is crap but I d never say don t buy it I m making an exception here because I believe the author should not be monetarily rewarded for this piece of uneducated trash What I found particularly ignorant and plain wrong was the author s hypothesis about the links between manic and depressed episodes in Bipolar The author is of the opinion that mania is a person making up for a deficit in her childhood and that the depressed episode is the same person making up for the guilt of the things she or he did whilst manic I just find this idea absolutely absurd insulting and dangerous Bipolar is not a personality disorder many studies have shown the existence of damaged parts of the brain matter in Bipolar people It has been shown to be hereditary It is not something that is learned like a personality disorder and therefore the idea that our manic episodes are a form of making up for childhood deficits is beyond bizarre Beyond this there is as usual for a book on Bipolar something like a 9 1 ratio of discussing manic vs depresssed pole behaviour Mania is sexy and it sells books Who doesn t want to read about a mad man going on a huge spending spree travelling round the world on a whim or taking a load of drugs Yet in the vast vast majority of Bipolar people manic episodes are far less common and far shorter than the long deep dark depressed episodes But of course I was naive to expect the author of this book to take a fair balanced view on this mental disorder that has so badly impacted on my life and many millions others For this book to have received praise from such well regarded British intellectuals is beyond me It is a nasty ignorant take on a deadly psychological disorder full of barely veiled prejudices on the part of the author and ironically the entire book is based on third party accounts of Bipolar Ie the famous Bipolar biographies too Avoid

Strictly Bipolar is Darian Leader's treatise on the psychological disorder of our timesIf the post war period was called the 'Age of Anxiety' and the 1980s and '90s the 'Antidepressant Era' we now live in Bipolar times Mood stabilising medication is routinely prescribed to adults and children alike with child prescriptions this decade increasing by 400% and overall diagnoses by 4000%W. The best analysis of manic depression so far It gives an account of how the pharmaceutical companies branding this as a biological condition and making it totally drug dependent This condition has to be studied individually clinically and not brand one with set parameters of the bipolar spectrum Nowadays this condition is treated with multiple drugs and trying to find the right cocktail this is totally driven by the drug industry Now time is the factor and thereby old clinical approach is forgottenBring in back the good old family practice and do away with the spectrum parameters

Hat could explain this explosion of bipolarity Is it a legitimate diagnosis or the result of Big Pharma marketing Exploring these uestions Darian Leader challenges the rise of 'bipolar' as a catch all solution to complex problems and argues that we need to rethink the highs and lows of mania and depressionWhat he asks do these experiences have to do with love guilt and rage Why the sp. Manic depressive illness although serious used to be rare roughly 1% of the population Yet during the past three decades and people have not only been diagnosed but put on a cocktail of medication to address their bipolarity Now are such diagnosis genuine Or is this increase a symptom of something deeper that is something gone wrong with our mental healthcare systemsDarian Leader a psychoanalyst and a member of the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research and of the College of Psychoanalysis surely throws here a needed debateHe may have a point in accusing the pharmaceutical companies of marketing an illness so as to sell drugs to people Historians of psychiatry have all made the same observation here It was precisely when the patents began to run out on the biggest selling mainstream antidepressants in the mid 90s that bipolar suddenly became the recipient of the vast marketing budgets of the pharmaceutical industry I don t know about that and uite frankly I feel wary of such argument tantamount or so I felt of accusing big pharmas of conspiracy to make profits I personally don t want to go thereWhere I fully agree with him is when he denounces modern psychiatry that has redefined manic depression with ill conseuences First it has stripped such illness of its specificity the flight of ideas the special sense of connectedness to the world the oscillation of a fault and the effort to create a categorical separation of good and bad to now include a new spectrum of very different mood swings each with their own features Out with manic depression In with the uite new bipolar catch all label BP1 BP2 BP3 BP4 BP5 BP6 and their satellites which being too simplistic doesn t help the understanding of a complex illness Then because not only content to have thus airbrushed the very specifics of manic depression it has reduced itself to the prescription of pills as if cocktails of medication were the best if not only way to address mental issues As he clearly states it isn t Understanding patients histories is also crucial a human touch that modern psychiatry sadly seems to have dangerously lost touch with Strictly Bipolar is a short read challenging at times but nevertheless a powerful argument for a new approach to treating what remains a very serious illness Bipolar cannot be dealt with casually thrusting pills all the while neglecting the human factor That such a condemnation is needed shows how cold and dehumanised economically interested our healthcare systems consciously or not came to be A must read for anyone interested in the topic
