FYI On The Bipolar Doomsday Scenario

Hi,

Hey, I just got back from the gym.

I was just looking at some emails and many
people wrote me they were interested in
finding out how to avoid the bipolar doomsday
scenario but when they look at the page
it was gone. They said they were away for Easter
and asked if I could set it up again.

So I am writing you today to let you know
that I did.

Just in case you have no idea what I am
talking about.

A Bipolar Doomsday Scenario is when a loved one
goes through a Bipolar episode which has an
exceptionally destructive effect on friends and
family.

The final outcomes of Bipolar Doomsday Scenario
may range from a major disruption of a relationship
between a loved one and his/her set of friends and
families, to the entire destruction or separation of
a family and/or friends.

Thanks.

Bipolar warning. Avoid this 10 letter deadly word.

=>PLEASE FORWARD TO FRIENDS, FAMILY AND LOVED ONES <= Hi, How’s it going? The next three weeks are going to
be really, really hard for me. I have
to work out 11 times a week. My “eating
plan” is SUPER strict as well.

Anyway, I have to get going to the gym
and I am already late by 19 minutes.

I am actually lowering my body fat down
in the 6% area over the next few weeks.

BUT, it’s possible that I could slip up with
my program and make a mistake or so.

Will I be all mad? No.

This brings up a super important topic that I
want to talk about and how it relates to
bipolar disorder.

Have you ever known someone who
was an absolute perfectionist? I have.
I know someone who has Obsessive-
Compulsive Personality (OCD), and for
the most part, it actually works as a
positive thing for her, because it helps
her notice the small details that other
people would miss.

But I’m talking about a person so
picky, so much of a perfectionist
that it really bugs you!

The need for perfection and a life
of peace usually are opposite of each
other.

Whenever we absolutely need to have
something be a certain way, we are
usually fighting a losing battle. Rather
than being content with simply having
the item or person, we are focused on
what’s wrong with it/him.

When we are zeroed in on what’s wrong,
It implies that we are dissatisfied or
discontent. And this means that we are
focusing on the negative, instead of the
positive.

Negative thinking, as I talk of often,
is toxic to us. We need to be positive
thinkers, because positive thinking
is healthy thinking, as I teach in my
courses/systems:

Positive thinking, or using daily
positive affirmations, just makes
you feel better about yourself,
and, naturally it follows that you
will feel better about others, as
well.

As this relates to bipolar disorder
means that you can be defeated
by the disorder if all you think of
is the negative side of the disorder
and all about what’s wrong with
it.

If you do this, you are being
managed by the disorder, instead
of you managing it, like I always
try to teach you.

Focusing on imperfection pulls
us away from our goal of being
proactive, from becoming high
functioning, being productive,
being supportive, being the
best we can be given the
circumstances.

We need to take the emphasis
off imperfection and focus on
our strengths, and not our
weaknesses.

Too many people think of
having bipolar disorder as a
weakness, when instead it
can be a strength, If you let
it.

Fighting the dragon (bipolar)
can make you stronger, can
increase your bond with your
loved one (if you work together
to fight this disorder), can bring
out the best in you because you
can learn how to appreciate the
smaller gifts that you have and
learn to live life on life’s terms.

The solution is to stop thinking
that you can change things that
you can’t change. You, the
survivor, cannot change the
fact that you have bipolar
disorder. But you CAN change
the way you manage it.

You, the supporter, cannot
change the fact that your
loved one has a disorder that
they will have the rest of their
life. But you can change your
own attitude towards it,
becoming more positive about
it.

As you begin to eliminate your
need for perfection in any/all
areas of your own life, you will
begin to discover the perfection
in life itself.

Okay, well I have to run for the FIRST
workout today. I have another one later
on πŸ™‚

Your Friend,

Dave

Shocking truth about the bipolar diagnosis revealed

=>PLEASE FORWARD TO FRIENDS, FAMILY AND LOVED ONES <= Hi, What’s going on? Today I want to talk to you about
bipolar disorder and how it takes
time and history to diagnose it.

Many, many people have written
or talked to me about how it took
them a long time to get diagnosed
with bipolar disorder.

Even though the mental health
professionals (psychiatrists, etc.)
and even the Diagnostic and
Statistical Manual of Mental
Disorders (DSM-IV), which is
the “Bible” that psychiatrists
go by to diagnose bipolar
disorder will tell you that it’s
between ages 17-21 that you
first get diagnosed with bipolar
disorder, most people are NOT
diagnosed between those ages.

It usually takes more time than
that to be diagnosed with the
disorder, as most of you will
attest.

Most people tell me it wasn’t
until their thirties or forties
that they were finally diagnosed.
And they tell me (most of them)
that they pretty much knew that
something was wrong with them
long before that – usually they say
that they knew it their whole
lives, even.

So firstly, it takes time to be
diagnosed. Mostly because
people who have the disorder
usually don’t come to the
doctor/psychiatrist when they
are younger, because either they
are scared, or they don’t want to
hear the diagnosis.

Michele, who works for me
wasn’t diagnosed until she was
45, but then she realized her son
was showing the same symptoms
and got him diagnosed when he
was 12 years old.

However, she has a 25-year-
old son who secretly admitted
to his girlfriend that he has
bipolar disorder, but he will not
go to a psychiatrist, because he
doesn’t want the diagnosis
confirmed.

Maybe because he’s scared,
maybe because he’s seen what
his mom has gone through,
maybe because he knows if he
goes to the doctor/psychiatrist,
it will become real for him.
Maybe because he knows if he
gets diagnosed, he’ll be put on
medication that he’ll have to
take for the rest of his life.

In my courses and systems,
I talk about this – it’s called
denial, and many people have
to face it – they just don’t want
to believe that they have bipolar
disorder, so they put off getting
diagnosed:

SUPPORTING AN ADULT WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?

http://www.bipolarsupporter.com/report11

SUPPORTING A CHILD/TEEN WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?
Visit:
http://www.bipolarparenting.com

HAVE BIPOLAR DISORDER?
Visit:
http://www.survivebipolar.net

When these people who have been in
denial finally do seek help, one of the
things the doctor/psychiatrist will use
to determine the diagnosis will be the
person’s history.

The doctor/psychiatrist will not only
ask for a medical history, but will want
a family history as well, because
research done on bipolar disorder does
show a hereditary element to it, usually
passed down the female side of the
family, from mother to child.

So, like in Michele’s case, it was
passed from her to her two sons.
Even though one of them is still
in denial, he will eventually have to
face the truth.

So there is a time element to being
diagnosed with bipolar disorder,
and there is also a history element.

But what happens AFTER you’re
diagnosed?

The first thing is that you have to
develop a treatment plan, because
without it, you will have no direction
to the management of the disorder –
and if you ever want to manage it
(and it CAN be managed, even if
there is no cure – believe me, because
that’s what all my courses are about),
you must have a treatment plan.

A treatment plan usually consists of
medication and therapy. Medication
is SO important. Without it, there
can be no stability at all. Medication
helps to normalize the extremes in
mood that bipolar disorder consists
of. Although it may take some time
to find the right medications and in
the right dosages.

The treatment plan will usually
consist of therapy as well –
especially in the beginning,
because finding out that you
have bipolar disorder may
now interfere with what your
life was like before. You may
even go through a “grieving
process” over your past life.

So you will need therapy for
all the issues that the disorder
will bring into your life.

Here’s where the supporter
will be such a help to you.
Supporters help their loved
ones in so many ways –
they will encourage you,
help you learn to take your
medications, get to doctor
and therapist appointments,
learn to de-stress your life,
and help manage your disorder.

It may take time and effort to
find the right treatment plan
for you, but that’s also another
way a supporter can help.

Most of all, a supporter can
help someone with bipolar
disorder to realize that they
are still loved and cared for
in spite of having a disorder
that might otherwise cause
them to feel isolated and
alone.

Your Friend,

Dave

Truth About Bipolar Disorder

Hi,

I got a lot of feedback about my little bipolar
explanation booklets. People really love them.

I wanted to write you something. The truth about
bipolar disorder is that it’s hard to verbally
explain.

This is why I made these little yellow booklets.
Some people have asked me if I really used
them with my family. YES.

Actually the first person I sent them to was
my grandmother. I found it hard to talk to
her about my mom’s bipolar disorder or her
daughter’s bipolar disorder. My grandmother
loved the booklet and said it helped her
really understand.

She shared a bunch of them with some other
people she knew that were dealing with
bipolar disorder.

I think that there are like 10,000 or
so in circulation. I am not sure exactly
because we really didn’t use to have a good
record keeping system when this first
started.

disorder, please visit:

Talk to you tomorrow.

What’s it take to live successfully with bipolar disorder?

=>PLEASE FORWARD TO FRIENDS, FAMILY AND LOVED ONES <=
Hi,

What’s new?

Today I have a challenge for you!

I’m just curious.

Answer this question:

What does “living successfully with
bipolar disorder mean to you?”

Ok, I’ll even give you a hint, and
I’ll tell you my answer, how about
that?

To me, it’s when taking medication,
going to all appointments (doctor,
therapist, psychiatrist, etc.), following
treatment plan, etc., all becomes a
lifestyle instead of a chore.

It’s when you have a positive
attitude instead of a negative one –
where you have totally accepted
bipolar disorder instead of
resenting it (since there’s nothing
you can do about it anyway).

It’s when you have mastered the
disorder instead of it mastering
you.

I could go on and on, but I
think you get the idea.

Now, how about you?

I’ve talked all about this
in my courses, so some of you
might even cheat!!

Ok, but all teasing aside, for those
who haven’t gotten my courses and
can’t cheat —

I’ll give you another hint –
It has to do with setting goals and
achieving them. Realistic goals.

And since we’re talking about
success, obviously, I think I need
to throw in here that we’re talking
about how each person has to define
their own success.

Now, I’m not trying to be a male
chauvinist pig or anything –
I think women and men are the
same here, really I do. So don’t
send me any hate mail! J

But I think it would be interesting
to see in the responses how men
define success against how women
define success. Maybe there is a
difference, I don’t know.

Especially as it regards bipolar
disorder. Maybe bipolar makes
it so that there isn’t a difference
at all. What do you think?

Your friend,

Dave

Shocking Reverse Bipolar Discrimination

Hi,

How’s it going?

Today is suppose to be the bipolar news.
But, Andrea who sets it up is on vacation.
I thought she was going to set it up
even though she was away. I am not sure.

Maybe she is running late. So I had to type
up this daily bipolar email instead.

You might get the news tomorrow or Sunday
I am not sure.

Sorry if this messed up your schedule.

It’s been really tough to keep track of
this ever expanding organization.

I actually spoke to some really smart people
yesterday who gave me some great ideas.

Ultimately soon, I am going to be hiring an
operations/admin person. I don’t just want
any old person but someone who I can
really work with and trust. I will send more
details later on this coming week.

Okay, you know, I’ve talked in the
past about stigma, and the
problem that people who have
bipolar disorder have with people
who stigmatize them, or pre-
judge them without knowing
them.

People who have bipolar disorder
get mad at those people who
pre-judge , or stigmatize them.

Well, good old Webster in his
dictionary defines prejudice as
“preconceived judgment or opinion”
or “an irrational attitude of
hostility directed against an
individual, a group, a race, or
their supposed characteristics.”

Wow! I sure don’t want to be
accused of being prejudiced
against anyone if it means
that, do you? I mean the
attitude of hostility part.

Well, it actually says an
irrational attitude of
hostility. I don’t think that’s
any of us.

In fact, I don’t think it’s really
true of those people who are
prejudiced against those
who have bipolar disorder.

I think, really, that they fall
into the category of
“preconceived judgment or
opinion.” Don’t you agree?

It’s like me saying, “Just give
me a little time – I’ll grow on
you!” J

But seriously, what I wanted
to bring out is that it’s not just
that other people are prejudiced
against people who have bipolar
disorder, it’s also that people
with bipolar and their loved ones
sometimes get just as prejudiced
against doctors, therapists and
mental health workers and assume
they are bad.

I’ve tried to address this problem
in my courses/systems, where I
talk about the problem of good and
bad doctors, and teach you how to
find a good doctor or therapist:

But I really encourage you not to
pre-judge your doctor or therapist.
Yes, there are some bad doctors and
therapists and psychiatrists out there,
but there are also some good ones.

I would encourage you not to
judge yours on, say, just one
visit. You may have just caught
him on a bad day or something.

You know how bad it feels to be
pre-judged. Try not to pre-judge
anyone else, because that would be
like reverse discrimination.

Your friend,

Dave

Asked me for help about bipolar disorder? Read this.

Hi,

Hey, what’s going on?

I hope you are doing well.

I have 1 million things to do today.

I seriously need to start going to bed earlier.

Starting next week I am going to. I won’t even
lie and say this week because it can’t happen.

The older I get the more sleep I need πŸ™‚

Okay, Today’s email is a pretty serious one, because
of what’s on my mind and my heart, and what I
want to share with you.

It’s because of the following email that was
sent to me:

Dave, I really need help. We are in bad shape.
My son has bipolar disorder. Please help us.
Steve
——————

You have no idea how much an email like this
just breaks my heart. I get SO many emails
just like it, every day. And I want to help each
and every person, believe me! There are some
days that I only get 4 hours of sleep because I
spend so much time helping everyone else.

Don’t get me wrong, I am certainly NOT
asking for pity here. That would be the last
thing I would ever do. But I do want you all
to know that I treat each and every email with
heart and all the understanding that I have in
me, because I know where you are coming
from, because I went thru it with my mom for
so many years.

I know bipolar. I know how it can take over
your life. I know how much pain it can cause.
I know how alone you can feel.

Believe me, I can so identify with the man in
this email. I have been there! I feel his
pain!
And he is coming to me for help, as SO
many of you have, and still do on a
daily basis.

Unfortunately, I can’t help everyone.
There is only one of me. But it is that
desire to help everyone that motivated
me to write my courses in the first
place, and to offer them to you:

SUPPORTING A CHILD/TEEN WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER?

Visit:
http://www.survivebipolar.net

Now, believe me – I am accused all the
time of being money-hungry, or of being
in this only for the money, and other
comments like that, just because I charge
for my courses.

Please understand – If I could, I would
offer every single course, Special
Report, manual, etc. f.ree of charge to
everyone who needs it! Because I
KNOW that you need what I have
written! I KNOW you need this
information!

But, unfortunately, at this time I just
can’t do that. I truly, truly wish I
could. The best I can do is to make it
all as affordable as I can. And to offer
some things f.ree, like these emails.

I hope at least these emails are helping
you. I try to make them as informative
as possible.

The man in that email said, “We really
need help…please help us.” The best way
I can help anyone is thru my courses.
Because the best way I think anyone with
bipolar disorder or a supporter of a loved
one with bipolar disorder can be helped is
thru knowledge – thru learning as much as
they can about the disorder.

Steve, if you’re reading this, I sincerely
hope I have helped you. My heart goes
out to you.

I do spend a massive amount of time more
than 50% of my day doing this even
though I am not suppose to. I send daily
emails, do videos, special reports, etc.
to help as many people as I can. But,
I am getting to the point as we approach
200,000 people who have subscribed,
I can’t individually help people anymore.

I do struggle that I can’t help everyone.

It’s very stressful. I actually had to talk
to people in a similar situation to ask how
they handle it. They said that I have to help
as many people as I can but not hurt myself.

Over the last 6 months, I have been working
18 hours a day every day. Zero time off.
If I wasn’t younger, I would be in trouble.

But I have to hire more people and slow down
other wise, I won’t be any good to anyone.

Know what I mean? I just wanted to write so
you weren’t mad at me.

Think that I am wrong for saying this?

Your friend,

Dave

Bipolar lesson from Shocking test results from my doctor

=>PLEASE FORWARD TO FRIENDS, FAMILY AND LOVED ONES <= Hi, How’s it going? What’s new? I wanted to tell you something that
happen to me yesterday that was really
alarming.

I have a big BIPOLAR LESSON for you today.

It’s a wake up call.

Okay the other day I wrote you an email
about how my feet were bothering me–
they felt like I was being stabbed in
them. The fact that I thought that
was a potential sign of diabetes.

I vacillated between going to the
doctor and having them checked out.
At first I thought, “oh, let me wait
a day or two.” Then I thought, “I sure
will be a hypocrite since I tell people
dealing with bipolar disorder they
must take immediate action when they
see signs and symptoms of something.”

So I decided to go to the doctor and
get my feet checked out. I don’t go
to the doctor at all. I go to places
to monitor my liver enzymes, cholesterol,
blood pressure, etc. Since I body build
non competitively, I like to measure these
things to make sure that everything is
a-okay.

Anyway, to make things fast, I normally
pay out of pocket when I get these tests
done at like a place that specializes in
doing these things and doing them fast.

With that said, I never go to my primary
care physician. I hadn’t gone in a long
time. I really forgot who it was.

So I remembered, I went to the person.
I told them about my feet.

I spoke to the doctor. He was a super nice
person. We talked about mental health as
well and the fact that I runt his organization.
He asked me for marketing and advertising
tips.

Anyway, he said that I probably have foot
trauma because I am in good shape, I have a
super structured eating plan with virtually
no sweets. He said however he would test me
for diabetes and other “stuff.”

I said that sounds good to me.

So I did the tests and had to wait for the
results.

Something alarming happened….

My mom called me yesterday and said, “Hi,
your test results came back negative?”

I was like, “huh?” She was like, “the doctor’s
office called me and said your results were
negative.”

I was like, “huh?” And then it hit me,
the doctors office called my mom and gave
her the test results. I was immediately
super mad.

Not only is this against the law because of
privacy laws but I was never called with the
results.

In my mind, I should have been:

called with the results
I should be able to get a copy
I should get numbers and names of the tests
for my records
I should be asked “how are you feet?”

NONE of this was done. I was so mad.

Even my mom was like, “why are they
calling me? How did they get my number?”

I was thinking as well, “what if I had
a serious disorder, would they just tell
anyone?”

So anyway, I called and I was super mad.

Someone answered and I said, how someone
called my mom like I was in grammar school
or high school to give my test results.

She then cut me off, and said, “hold
on.” She came back. Then she said,
hold on again. And again.

I was so annoyed.

Then she said that basically that’s the
number she had for me. I said “impossible.”

Then I said, “look let’s say you did, so
you told someone other than me about the results?”

She said, “umm, well, hold on.”

So then she came back and told me it was a mistake
she was sorry and they wouldn’t have told negative
results if there were negative results.

I told her that wasn’t the point.

At this point, she was giving me an attitude.

I asked her if she was planning on getting
the right number. She said, “umm, yes.”

I gave her my number and asked for a break
down of the results. I asked how come I didn’t
get them faxed to me. How come no one asked
how my feet were. I asked her how come
no one explained the test results to me.
I asked her what kind of system she thought
this was. I asked her question after question.

I asked her one final question, “do you think
with the attitude you gave me this is good
for a patient?”

She said, “I am sorry, blah, blah.”

I said, “tomorrow I will be done for
my results on paper and see what
you have in my file since you already
have wrong information–which was my
mom’s number (the one I never gave).

I was super mad the entire day about it.

Then it hit me how I had to send out a message
to you.

In my courses/systems below, I talk
about how it’s important to find the
right therapist and doctor.

HAVE BIPOLAR DISORDER?
Visit:
http://www.survivebipolar.net

I have an entire system to find a doctor
and therapist who can help either you or
your loved one.

However one thing many overlook is the importance
of finding a doctor and therapist that are
good at running a business and hire the right
people and have the right systems in place.

The doctor that I went to for my feet was
a nice person. He sounded like he knew
about doctor stuff. He however obviously is
a bad business person with bad systems.

His receptionist and nurses are running
his practice into the ground probably.

He doesn’t even know it. He might not
know it until it’s too late.

So let’s assume he is a great doctor.
If he has bad systems and staff no matter
how good he is, it will hurt or ruin patient
care.

It’s the same thing with doctors for bipolar
and therapists.

If they are great but have no idea how
to hire the right receptionist, pay their
bills on time, organize their office, not
lose medical releases, keep track of which
medications patients are on, etc. the patient
is doomed.

I have heard it time and time again. The doctor
is knowledge and super nice but his office
is a disaster and the patient suffers.

Let me warn you today.

If you find that either you or your loved one
is going to a doctor that is very disorganized,
forgetful, has massive turn over with receptionists,
etc. this is a bad sign and you have to consider
finding someone who is a good doctor with bipolar
disorder AND knows how to run a business right.

And if you are a bipolar supporter, if the doctor
hates talking to you, working with you, getting
input from you for whatever strange reason, you
should consider other doctors if possible.

Know what I mean?

Let this email serve as a reminder of how important
this is.

Finally I am going to write the doctor I went
to about what happen and how it’s dangerous.
It will be a courteous letter. I don’t have
to do it but hopefully he will take notice
and do something about his office. Otherwise
he will have an uphill battle building a practice.
Plus he runs tremendous legal risks.

I, however am moving on. I want a doctor who
knows how to run a business today, explains test
results to the person who gets the tests, allows
you to get a hard copy, asks how you are doing,
knows how to hire the right people, etc.

What do you think of all of this?

Your Friend,

Dave

Shocking….How bipolar disorder really kills

=>PLEASE FORWARD TO FRIENDS, FAMILY AND LOVED ONES <= Hi, How’s it going? I hope you are doing well today. Yesterday someone called my
call center service about something
they wanted to order. So I got a
note from the call center
and called the person.

He was surprised that I actually
called him. I do this sometimes
when I have time.

Anyway, we got to talking
and he asked me a bunch of questions
about bipolar disorder.

I wound up talking to him for like
one hour.

He was a really nice person but he
really got a whole lot of miss information.
He actually was a bipolar supporter I think.

Anyway, he was told many wrong things
about bipolar disorder that are simply
deadly. The kinds of things that if someone
followed them, they lead to almost certain
death. I am not being dramatic. I almost don’t
even want to write some of the things he
thought. I don’t want people to take it the
wrong way.

I felt that it was my duty to explain what
I knew to be the truth.

So that’s why I spoke to him for so long.

But it reminded me about another daily email
that I once sent before…

I think I have found out what the
#1 bipolar killer is:

I think it is IGNORANCE.

Think about it.

Webster’s dictionary says that
the definition of ignorance is
“being ignorant.” And the
definition of ignorant is:

“destitute of knowledge or
education.” See that?

Destitute means poor. Actually,
really poor. So someone who
is ignorant is “really poor in
education or knowledge.”

I don’t know about you, but
I always thought an ignorant
person was someone who was
just stupid.

But now I realize how that’s
just a really mean thing to think
about someone who is ignorant,
because it’s not that they’re stupid,
it’s just that they DON”T KNOW!

In all my courses, I stress so much
the importance of KNOWLEDGE:

You know how I am always
stressing the value of knowledge,
how I’m always preaching about
how important it is to keep
educating yourself about bipolar
disorder.

That’s what all my courses are
all about! That’s what all my
emails are all about. That’s what
all my newsletters are all about.
That’s what my website is all
about. That’s what *I* am all
about!

I want to educate you about
bipolar disorder. I want you to
learn everything you can learn
about the disorder, so that you
can master it instead of it mastering
you. (Sound familiar?)

Ignorance, by definition meaning,
NOT KNOWING, can lead to a
person not taking their medication
or the right medication because they
don’t know what to tell their doctor.

Ignorance can lead to a person committing
suicide because they DON”T KNOW
what else to do!

Let’s think about that. Ignorance leads
to people NOT KNOWING what to do.

Can you see how serious that can be
when you’re dealing with bipolar
disorder?

Now do you see why I’m always
preaching about you getting as
much knowledge about the disorder
as you can?

Why I’m always telling you that
next to medication that knowledge
is the next important thing to
recovery from bipolar disorder?

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER.

It’s true. The fastest route to the
life of stability is to gain knowledge.

Knowledge is the opposite of
Ignorance.

There are websites on the internet
that promote TOTAL lies about
bipolar disorder. These people say
things that if followed with CAUSE people’s
deaths.

I have spoken to these people and honestly
they have no clue. They are not evil people
just completely misguided folks.

But the problem is, they spread things
and then people spread what they heard
and then like the guy I spoke to today,
get information that is totally wrong.

Information that is potentially deadly
if followed.

Don’t be ignorant, do your research
AND check out what I say too. If
I say stuff, thinking about it, research,
check me out, does what I say make sense?

If I am ever on a conference call, challenge
me. I love it. Why? Well I have carefully thought
about everything that I say and recommend and
I never make any claims to be a doctor or
therapist.

I have seen sites were people suggest that
they are doctors when they are not.

Anyway, I have to run, don’t let
ignorance get the best of you or else.

Choose knowledge not ignorance.

Bipolar disorder really kills through
lack of knowledge or ignorance

Which are you going to choose?

Your friend,

Dave
