          Extreme Highs and Lows

          August 01, 2006

          Dr. Phil explores the ups and downs of bipolar disorder. This illness takes its victims on an emotional rollercoaster ride — from elation to extreme irritability, intense rage, or devastating depression. It comes in cycles and takes years to accurately diagnose.


          Manic Mom
          Cathy suffers from Bipolar II disorder, and says she goes from zero to psycho in 15 seconds. Is she just a moody mother who can’t keep her emotions in check, or are her problems biologically based?


          “I know I’m a bad mother.”



          Delusions of Hollywood
          Manic episodes can cause you to hear voices, have delusions of grandeur, or make you believe you are in the movies. Fred’s bipolar has done this and more, yet Fred believes he can lead a normal life.


          Is Fred ready to move out of his parents’ house?
