Just FUCK. FUCK the internet!

I'm bipolar.

I searched for help regarding mood swings of illogical anger.

I get a bunch of pages that say things like, "People with bipolar disorder have a high risk of suicide, job loss, divorce, etc...."

Thanks for the FUCKING reminder world.

1. I like to think of it as a spiritual problem, retrowire.

I'm not talking church and religion here. Most churches in America are devoid of spirituality. Even though most people in America claim to be Christians, we live in a society that is materialistic in a couple of different senses. It is spiritually materialistic and it is materialistic in the sense that most people think of materialism; that is the acquisition of possessions. Since most scientists and doctors, including psychiatrists and psychologists, are spiritual materialists, it means that they aren't really equipped with the ability to solve the problem of mental illness. They just know how to treat the symptoms, and sometimes they can't even do that well.

So it might be kind of hard to find answers in our society when you are having spiritual trouble because very few people here know anything about spirituality. When you did a search on the internet you probably just ran up against the prevailing wisdom regarding matters of mental health which is overdue for a paradigm shift.

A good Jungian therapist can help in these matters in my experience. When you seek out a therapist, specifically look for people who subscribe to the Jungian point of view. I can also suggest several books on the subject that have been helpful to me if you are interested.
