Semi Bi-polar

Mr.B was telling the class yesterday about some research he carried out while in university about Bi Polar people, and the more he talked about it, the more i noticed that we all bi-polar in a way...He stressed that the biggest difference between normal people and those who are bi polar is that they ask for normal demands but react in exaggerated ways, but how many of us fit that category!!
Just yesterday my younger brother totally freaked out about a roach that crawled in through his window, he screamed at me to go get the insecticide and i did, in about 2 minutes, and he was shouting at what took me so long, he then excessively sprayed it, and smashed it with his shoe over and over, then sprayed his whole room....Was that exaggerated?? It could apparently be seen as a bi-polar reaction, but honestly, i would have done the same thing!!

The line between sanity and insanity is very slight, and we often take little trips across the boarder once in a while...

I think "normal" when it comes to measuring the state of a human mind is so vague, you can't really use it to measure scale. Which is why I don't have much faith in Psychology or Psychiatry.

Who are they to decide what a "chemical imbalance" is? To assume balance, we must assume stability. Stability hints at a completely stationary existence. How can the chemicals in your brain be exactly the way they are for someone else? Who is to say the person you use to set the example isn't a little insane themselves?

I really don't see a solid line between sanity and insanity. Sure there are extremes but I think I meet a few crazy people every day, but they can go about their day just fine.

Road rage, OCD, anal retentive people... They are all, we are all, a little off.
