Seattle Weekly News Mentality Challenged by Philip Dawdy

No elevator to the top floor IT'S WHY we're afraid of them, of course -- the "mentally ill." 


Actress LINDA HAMILTON has made a public apology to her first husband BRUCE ABBOTT for making his life a misery with her undiagnosed bipolar problems.

THE TERMINATOR star was diagnosed a manic depressive a decade ago and is now on medication to balance her mood swings, but when she married Abbott at 26, she had no idea why she felt so low, and made his life a living hell.

Hamilton appeared on yesterday's (17NOV04) OPRAH show to explain how her bipolar disorder wrecked her marriages to Abbott and movie-maker JAMES CAMERON.

She explained, "I was very physical at times. I would grab him (Abbott) by the legs and refuse to let him leave me. Once, I threw a glass of water in his face. I would make him suffer.

"I think that after a while my dark dark place began to swallow him up whole. He lived in fear of me. He left me saying I was a bully.

"I acted out a tremendous amount in my first marriage, especially, with no clue as to what was really going on - the depression, the disappearing into books.

"I married my husband and, for a year, I didn't speak to him; I just read books. It was very difficult to explain that behavior but I was in hiding.

"If he had done a small accidental thing to hurt my feelings I couldn't recover."

The Warning Signs Of An Impending Bipolar Disorder Manic Episode

Bipolar disorder - as the name implies - involves two distinct set of symptoms. One set throws the individual down into the depths of a massive depression. The other places the individual who suffers with bipolar disorder at the top of a peak manic episode.

Most everyone can eventually recognize the warning signs of an impending depressive episode related to bipolar disorder. More likely than not, individuals with bipolar disorder try very hard to avoid it.

However, for many individuals with bipolar disorder, it's more difficult to recognize the signs of an impending manic episode. After all, a manic episode of bipolar disorder can be mistaken in some cases - especially in the very early formation -- for the lifting of the corresponding mood swing of the depression.
