Bipolar disorder (manic depression)

Note that this disorder is often misdiagnosed particularly by the Veterans Administration (VA). Estimates of a misdiagnoses for bipolar disorder range as high as 70%. A misdiagnosis appears particularly likely for veterans who are actually suffering from a traumatic or toxic brain injury (TBI).

What is bipolar disorder?

 

Borderline personality disorder

Top

Note that bipolar disorder is often misdiagnosed as borderline personality disorder (BPD). The essential difference is that bipolar disorder (manic depression) is easily and readily treatable. Most practitioners agree there is no effective treatment for BPD though medications can lessen the symptoms for most.

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) — 2% of the population are estimated to suffer from BPD and 75% of the diagnosed cases are women.
Borderline Personality Disorder Sanctuary — BPD is a medical disorder which can be treated with medications to reduce the symptoms. In fact, research is showing that unless we treat the brain first with medication, therapy is useless.

Deliberate self-injury

Top

About 1% of the general population and 10% of adolescents self-mutilate and females do it twice as often as males (2:1 ratio). 80% of females who self-mutilate have a history of sexual abuse. The most common manifestation is cutting but other forms include burning (often with caustic substances), hitting, skin scratching, biting, hair pulling, bone breaking, and, in more drastic cases, amputations and self castration. Can be very addictive, particularly with cutting.

Often related to or associated with PTSD, borderline personality disorder, mood and eating disorders, dissociation, obsessive-compulsive behavior, and frequently includes substance abuse.

Dissociation

Top

Dissociation is a common and healthy defence used in response to life-threatening danger and is associated with memory loss and a sense of disconnection from yourself or your surroundings and is often found in severe cases of abuse, particularly as a young child.

Dissociation is symptomatic with victims of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and commonly prevents them receiving due process in the justice system.

Munchausen syndrome by proxy

Top

Note that this condition has lately (January, 2004) come under a great deal of scrutiny and controversy. In many cases it is probably misdiagnosed, particularly when used by child protective services as justification for taking children from their mothers.

Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

Top

If you have been in an violent or abusive relationship, whether you are a man or a woman, you will almost certainly exhibit at least some symptoms of PTSD. You may not be so severely affected that you feel you need professional counseling but you should familiarize yourself with the background and characteristics of what you are experiencing.

Combat veterans are particularly susceptible to PTSD, especially if they are met with domestic problems on their return. Many of them get into trouble attempting to self medicate with alcohol or drugs. And if you want to understand the effects of PTSD see the Letter From A Military Wife To The Condition Destroying Her Family.

Experience suggests that PTSD always accompanies significant traumatic brain injuries (TBI).

Service dogs

Top

For nearly a century service dogs have worked successfully with handicapped individuals. By achieving high behavioral and training standards that sets them apart from pets and other animals the presence of these dogs has won widespread public acceptance.

The exemplary conduct of service dogs with their handicapped partners led to state legislatures granting access rights to the blind, deaf and mobility impaired. Those early teams paved the way for the Americans With Disabilities Act, which has opened the door to individuals with a wide range of physical and mental impairments being able to have access rights with their service dogs.

Service dogs are proving particularly useful to disabled veterans suffering from PTSD, TBI, and other invisible wounds of war. However, such dogs must meet minimum training standards for public access and we list a few of the trainers and groups known to the EJF who can help.
