Researchers in Denmark found, in a study of 49 remitted bipolar patients published in the Journal of Behavior Therapy and Experimental Psychiatry, that beliefs about the self having to do with things such as “Social Isolation, Failure to Achieve, Dependence, Vulnerability to Harm and Illness, Emotional Inhibition, Insufficient Self-Control, and Pessimism accounted for 28% of the variance in functional impairment when controlling for length of remission and subsyndromal depressive symptoms.”
These beliefs tend to surface and plague human beings who are indoctrinated by psychiatry to believe that they are no longer human beings, but walking brain diseases.
Subsyndromal = pseudomedical quackspeak.
“Social Isolation, Failure to achieve, Dependence,Vulnerability to harm and illness, emotional inhibition, pessimism” yes I agree, it certainly all leads to depression. I know all this first hand. But what can one do to change it? So much depends on pure luck,on having the right connections no matter how clever you are. It doesn’t help if you have been thrown, by wars, in an alien culture you have problems adapting to. You have been pushed down and tried to get up again and again and then, when you break down, instead of getting proper help, you get labelled mentally ill and forcibly medicated. It is sort of the last straw!
