Accurate diagnosis is critical. If a person is mistakenly diagnosed with Depression (not Bipolar Disorder) they could be at risk for this unwanted result from their medication.

Having a thorough face to face evaluation by a licensed mental health professional is strongly recommended.



Boy Howdy!


I don't think that the word bi-polar even existed when my odessy began in 1977!

I got T.D. (tounge stack out involutaririly) many times.

Burt,

It was called manic depressive disorder back then. It wasn't until 1980 that the term bipolar disorder was introduced.

The other reason you may have had a difficult journey is that it wasn't until around 1980 that there was a drastic change in perspective regarding mental health disorders. It was around that time that a bio-medical approach was substituted for the psychodynamic conceptualization.

You were at the beginning of some major changes.....

Indeed.

I'm glad that we are where we are now.

Collectively, each and every human being is growing on several different fronts and dimensions at the same time.

My illness pushed me head-long into many spiritual chasms and unknown dangers until I cried out to ' the universe ' and got some answers.

How well are you acquainted with:

Grof, S. & Grof, C. (Eds.) (1989). Spiritual emergency: When personal transformation becomes a crisis. Los Angeles: Tarcher.

Work concerning the DSM-IV Codes including the term Spiritual Emergency ?

Thank You Doctor Hershey.

My Hope is that your research will help someone in your clinical practice and also help me to have a learned mind consider the material and reflect it back to me.

Burt,
I have researched this term further.
I believe you already know this...but for me and for those following the thread.....

Spiritual Emergency is a crises when an individual may question their sense of identity, their values and may embrace mystical and spiritual experiences at this time. This usually results in fear and confusion. They may feel tremendous anxiety, have difficulty coping with their daily lives, jobs, and relationships, and may even fear for their own sanity.

This type of emergency seems to be treated and researched by a branch of psychology called Transpersonal Psychology. This branch of psychology integrates psychological concepts, theories, and methods with subject matter and practices of the spiritual disciplines.

I found a book that others (I know I am) may be interested in reading to get more detailed information. It is called Spiritual Emergency: When Personal Transformation Becomes a Crisis (New Consciousness Readers) Stanislav Grof, Christina Grof

Thank You Doctor.

This happened to me in 1983.

The unraveling and deconstruction your ego and identity is a very shattering and problematic experience.

Everything that you thought you were is shattered in a million pieces and lying on the floor.
