Patient discussion about genius

Q. husband has horrible rash bil. below knees to his ankles. it is bright red yellow weeping cracks. On statins He has been on zocor for 15 years and we are so afraid this may have something to do with this drug. He has stopped taking the drug because the pain and weakness, and numbness in his legs is considerable

A. i looked up for side effects and i saw only "eczema" as a skin side effect. but it seems odd to me that after 15 years you got this kind of side effect. it should have appeared years ago. you know- it might be a very good idea to go and see a Dr... and not stopping a medication without warning..

Q. Is bipolar is like swiping moods that come and go? one time you are happy things are bright and clear and suddenly you are all complicated with your self and with your surrounding and you are moody and depressed ? is sudden change of mind is the correct definition to a Bipolar Disorder or i did get it all wrong ?

A. good question! most people don't know that Bipolar disorder is not just mood swings that come and go every now and then (if it was - my wife should be diagnosed as bipolar:)) ). it is consisted of long episodes of mania or depression. an episode can be a month or even 6.

Q. I have bipolar disorder and an IQ of about 140. Can this be a cause? I followed recently a link in this site and saw, that some people talking about other ones with bipolar disorder seem to be more intelligent than the average. It was for me the first time, that I read something like that about bipolar disorder. I know only since 3 years this diagnose of mine, but I had already 13 years before my "out-of-control"-crisis. Perhaps you will share with your topic-manager about your IQ or about your job that we can see, if there is possible a correlation.

A. I am now here in this community since 8 days. In one week I will be on the top of the list of the iMedix-contributors. This is perhaps how you can find the genius of someone. Then in a month I will be very alone on this list. And this is the way I live. I am often too fast for you and other persons and so, at the end, you are again alone. This can cause depression. Genius are a small community. I do not pretend to be one, I just want to show you which tendencies exist. Share your experience that we can learn together.
