Bipolar disorder is also known as manic-depressive illness. NIMH classifies this as a brain disorder. We do not hold this position. Bipolar disorder is one of the best examples of the subconscious running amok. If you do not know how the subconscious works you are not running your life, your life is running you. The question is...Are you happy with the subconscious running itself or would you like to take control of it.
