11. Manic-depressive, manic phase, we used to call this in the 1970s when
Edited on Thu Aug-27-09 10:50 AM by skip fox
I worked fro 7 years in mental hospitals (Columbus Stated, and Toledo Mental Hospital in Ohio).

These episodes (which can run for years) generally don't get better on their own. In fact, they tend to get only worse. He may soon begin to talk about having control of natural laws, or being immune to them ("I can walk through walls," as one patient told me). Or speak of secret societies and their ancient, evil wisdom. Etc.

Stay tuned.

(I wish it was just entertainment without the possibility to do such damage.)
