    A life with Major Depression and Bipolar Disorder-And Christmas with Amnesia

    My mother today wake up believing that we were in yesterday. I rush into her medicines and found that Clonazepan could be the reason;My lack of knowledge-that I am going to explain now, because to some Md's- Bipolar Disorder- Still means that you're crazy- and having the 'abnormality' I was hospitalized because of 'Knowing' what is universal knowledge, so they assume that I was assuming me as a psychiatrist, and because nobody can talk about mental illness to avoid the 'stigma' the reason why I was detained and never mention my job. I am a Journalist and God Bless I don't have a 'special status' that journalists get in our days...Only some scars from a kick.
    But I still have memory and I remember my mother -because of the same problem-Insurance- I remember several times that she complains was not treated fairly...of falls...that's a big deal for an American Citizen and for a live of work for my father (14 hours a day) that is 65 works as harder as 25, not a big deal because my father bosses like the Wall st. Game, an can't afford insurance.
    So this Christmas Eve is going to be special a Christmas with an 'md' trying to figuring out what's the problem...because the Dr. is probably in 'Bahamas' or literally in Bahamas and 'left' her without one of main medicines...and by the way never mention a 'risk profession' but always identify yourself-I mean legal credentials...and Micheal Moore made more from Healthcare than any of the 2012 candidates.

    Merry Christmas CNN and Thank You for keeping me informed and also to make me believe and give me the opportunity to "Tell The Truth!"(I don't if this Quote is for Citizen Kane or All That Jazz).
