Patient discussion about initiator

Q. Hello Guys !!! Good to have everyone here .. i am glad someone took the initiative and came with this very important community ... that so many people need and wishes !!! now for my question ... how common is the Bipolar ? i mean is it common as ADHD or Depression by the medical term ?

A. Thanks, I will bookmark that site.

Q. I have been treated for Bipolar Disorder. I wish to know is there any connection between Depression & Bipolar Hi! I’m Devontae. I was initially treated for depression but now I have been treated for Bipolar Disorder. I wish to know is there any connection between Depression and Bipolar Disorder or the worst state of depression is Bipolar Disorder???

A. There seems to be some misunderstanding on the definition of depression. The overall category here is Mood Disorder. Within the spectrum of Mood Disorders are the conditions of 1. Anxiety (such as panic disorder and generalized anxiety disorder) and 2. Depression. Just as anxiety is broken down into more specific disorders according to symtomology, etc. Depression is broken down into Unipolar depressions, and bipolar depressions. Unipolar depression has a spectrum of labels branching from it, and bipolar can be broken down into the divisions of Bipolar I and Bipolar II disorders. The only differences between Unipolar and Bipolar depression are that bipolar is characterized by cycling moods and depression is generally more stable. Also the psychotropic drug treatments are different for unipolar and bipolar disorders. Depressed people need pick-me-ups called SSRI's, or MAOI's such as zoloft, while bipolar people need mood stabilizers (e.g. Lithium) and anticonvulsants (often the exact sa

A result that confirms the existence of a point of equilibrium in the case on communication interactions is the min-max theorem of von Neumann: 'Any matrix based interaction accepts at least one point of equilibrium consisting of random strategies' [3], In this context, we would like to increase the level of generality of a communication process by considering the case of non-collaborative communication interaction of variable sum between two initiators, this type of interaction does not necessarily involve the existence of contradictory interests.
