Mar. 8--A Highland Park anesthesiologist whose license was suspended after he assaulted his wife is practicing again. William Scott Blessing, 60, is practicing at Baylor Medical Center at Irving, a hospital spokeswoman said. In March 2005, Dr. Blessing was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. An arrest warrant affidavit stated Dr. Blessing had stopped taking his medication for bipolar disorder, slammed his wife's head on the kitchen floor and threatened to "kill any officer that set foot on his property." Dr. Blessing was sentenced to one year of probation and fined $2,000. The Texas State Board of Medical Examiners indefinitely suspended his license. After completing the board's orders -- which included abstaining from alcohol and seeking psychiatric help -- Dr. Blessing was allowed to return to practice in mid-November but remains on probation by the board, spokeswoman Jill Wiggins said. He did not respond to requests for comment.

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.
