National Bi-Polar Disorder Awareness Week
« on: October 03, 2002, 10:37:00 PM »
I was put in Straight for my "attitude" when

what it really was, was that I was beginning

to exhibit early signs of mental illness.  I

do not think that I am alone either.  Back in 1978, the original Straight had a staff psychologist named Jim Hartz and he either had his head up his ass, or knew damn well that intake kids were bonkers and deliberately decieved the parents for $$$$$$.

There is a self test that can be done over the internet.  It has been a couple of years since I seen it, but I will try to dig it up for anyone interested.  I have come across a

few former inmates over the years, and most of them have some stress related disorder that has affected their life.  The thing to remember is that Straight did not 'create' this situation.  It had been there all along, and they just simply capitalized on it and deprived us of proper treatment and medication much like the Church of Scientology did to poor Lisa McPhearson.  Bi-

Polar disorder sucks.  During the highs, I say inappropriate things and get in trouble at the job, and during the lows I am a walking zombie.  I will try and find the site with the questionaire and post it for anyone that may wonder if they might be have the warning characteristics.

They gave us no choices, just one shade of grey
Back at that hellhole, behind Tyrone Mall
We walked in darkness, kept hitting the walls
I took the time to feel for the door
I had been treated, but what the hell for?

Here it is folks.  This site has all you need


to find out Bipolar Disorder and it's many related diagnosises.  It even has a few questionnaires if you think you may have a few 'Toys in the Attic.'  I hope it is as helpful and informative for the rest of you as it was for me.  OOPS!!  I forgot the damn

address the first time.  Here it is........http://www.psycom.net/depression.central.bipolar.html
