  • Card 9 / 18:
    In this section, the D.A.R.E. program was described as an incredibly popular program in schools across the United States despite the fact that research consistently suggests that this program is largely ineffective. How might one explain this discrepancy?

    There is probably tremendous political pressure to appear to be hard on drugs. Therefore, even though D.A.R.E. might be ineffective, it is a well-known program with which voters are familiar.

manic. If someone is diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but doesn't see it fit because they say they have never been manic, do you think they are right, or do you think they don't realize when they are manic?
kimberly Reply
Thank you for your input! I didn't know other personality disorders could cause mania, I look forward to continuing research
kimberly
I think it's more they don't realise because they don't want to it themselves
Charmaine
Good question. Firstly, some personality disorders also exhibit mania. as a sufferer, you live for the mania, its like your sociable, energy of your 20s on a saturday night thing. plus the best mood ever. thing is youre at your most vulnerable whilst at your most risk taking state.it causes issues
Tu
mental health isnt optional. theres no off and on.
Tu
I not saying there a of on button, am saying sometime it's hard for someone to come to terms that they have , they dont want to believe it
Charmaine
for some a diagnosis is a relief, an explination, a "finally" its a huge moment as at times there is complete ignorance but a lot of questions
Tu
I personally myself was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at age 6 it was a misdiagnosis no one even accounted for the reasons why bipolar wasn't the right fit. I have been diagnosed with a borderline personality disorder.
Sarah
same here. how did you feel about the rediagnosis? bpd?
Tu
I am the one who brought it up to the therapist and psychiatrist. I won't deny that I have I actually prefer this diagnosis than bipolar disorder
Sarah
I don't get manic my adhd is what kicks in
Sarah
thank you so much for sharing. im sure its psych porn. but how does acepting your diagnosis feel like to you. i feel mines not correct.
Tu
sadly there isnt much academia surrounding either mania, or personality diagnosed.
Tu
@Tu Verus. I feel that with the acceptance of this diagnosis and knowing that it is correct actually helps me. it helps me understand who I am why I am that way and what I can do to change. if you consistently feel like the diagnosis you have been given is wrong you become less confident.
Sarah
I was manic out In the yard talking in tongues until I took lithium
stephenie
concise. thank you. i hope it fidnt bring to much stress
Tu
lol, didnt.
Tu
Do people know when they are manic?
kimberly Reply
manic or panic?
Diksha
example: feel confident to venture out. manic 1 - good mood 5 wake up in a strange place with either a lot or no money on you, empty bank account, 50 new numbers on your phone and feel great about it manic 5 good mood 5
Tu
i think its panic of people they know if they are confused
Masozi
i believe that it really depends on how well a person knows themselves and whether or not they can identify their symptoms of their diagnosis. I personally panic due to a severe type of anxiety disorder. perception of one's self is important to distinguish otherwise it's speculation.
Sarah
ive learnt signs or situations that the situation is changing. sadly i dont always catch it
Tu
yeah... I agree with you@ Sarah Earing, one has to understand him/herself well enough to know when he/she is panicking..... and one true tell tale sign to know when you are panicking is being nervous, your hands, voice and even the whole body begins to shake... depending on how panicked you feel
Jordan
yes very true also when I panic not only do my hands voice and body shake I have a tendency to become very irritable and my confidence level declines and I usually feel dumb or stupid because I don't know how to respond and react in certain situations.
