The key differentiating feature about Bipolar Disorder Type III is that it is an admission that psychiatric drugs cause irreversible Brain Damage!
Bipolar Disorder Type III is caused by exposure to psychiatric medications and is considered permanent!
This is a frank admission that many Bipolar Disorders are iatrogenically caused, iatrogenically created. In other words, Bipolar Disorders are caused by the treating physician!
Bipolar Disorder Type III was proposed sometime during or before 2006 as a new category for the upcoming Diagnostic and Statistical Manual V (DSM V); however, the DSM V appears to have been delayed permanently.
Perhaps part of the delay might be the fear of exposure of the fact psychiatric medications work upon principles of toxicity and disabling.
Rather than “fix” chemical imbalances, they “cause” chemical imbalances!
Long term usage results in permanent Brain Damage!
