Thinking Through Bipolar Illness
From having taught Critical Thinking at the university
level for over six years, and having years of critical training in philosophy
to back it up, I've come to believe that developing critical skills people
can use in all areas of their life is the best way to cope with mental illness.
What I wish to share with you here are ways in which you can learn to
think more clearly. I want you to know that, even with this illness, there
are skills you can employ that will aid you in making crucial decisions
regarding your treatment options, family relations, and friendships.
You can help me with this ongoing project by providing feedback in the
form of constructive criticism, questions, suggestions etc....thanx folks.
Controlling the "Bipolar Beast"
If you are interested in improving your critical skills in a way such
that you can use them to better deal with your disorder then You
MUST subscribe to the list below because the list is our critical
thinking laboratory and is where we learn how to think analytically as
opposed to reacting emotively. Emotions have no place in thinking when
there are crucial decisions to be made. This is not to say that emotive
issues aren't important, but only to show how emotions serve to worsen
the situation at hand. This is especially true when one is caught up in
an episode of depression or mania. Clear thinking, if not fully possible
during an episode, is critical ahead of time so as to lessen the impact
of the episode on your immediate situation.
