Right Before I Was Diagnosed Bipolar
If you are hoping this book is a look at the Diagnostic Criteria of Bipolar Disorder, then I recommend that you stop reading after this opening paragraph—seriously, you do not have to read any further. This book is a short composition of my 10 journal entries that I wrote BEFORE I was diagnosed Bipolar. I say “diagnosed Bipolar”, because it is an identity change—but talking about labels from the DSM in detail is a whole different subject. I am not in favor of labels. I hate the DSM. Enough has been said about labels from the DSM—or if you want to be fancy smacy then you can call it “The DSM-IV-TR” (and if you want to be a sound really smart you can say that this version is not important right now because a new version is rumored to be coming out this summer of 2013). In the recent past, I did not have a mental disorder. I was not yet diagnosed when I completed these 10 entries, I was not aware that I was headed towards a manic episode. . .
