Patient discussion about reportable diseases

Q. Is bipolar a trouble giving disorder? What exactly does it feel like to be bipolar?

A. Dear Mickey, a bipolar friend of mine described life as either slow or exhausting depending on which part of the illness she was in. If she is in the manic cycle everyone else seems to think and move slowly and it makes her irritable, but she is also overjoyed at life at the same time it would send out confusing messages to others. When she is in the depressive part of the cycle she's incommunicative, withdrawn, and very tired. She does say that one of the greatest feelings is the rush she gets from the extreme ideas and great plans she has, even if they are totally unrealistic. The very idea of them makes her feel very powerful. I hope this helps you.

Q. What shall I give to eat for a good memory? My son forgets any given tasks very easily. With any given task either he will not complete the task or he will forget. His grandfather is having Alzheimer’s disease and I do not want him to suffer the same in his old age. What shall I give to eat for a good memory?

A. You can give him legumes, whole grains, green leafy vegetables, onions, almonds, salmon fish, sardine fish, berries, cherries, oranges, apples and plums. Reduction of diet rich in saturated fats after the age of 30 is also helpful. These foods provide with antioxidants, vitamins and good oils required for brain and its health. But don’t feed him with these foods only. Balanced diet plays a big role than anything else in this world. These are just supplements to support him not only for his brain but his whole body as well.
