NEW YORK—A new study published in The Journal Of Pediatric Medicine found that a shocking 98 percent of all infants suffer from bipolar disorder. “The majority of our subjects, regardless of size, sex, or race, exhibited extreme mood swings, often crying one minute and then giggling playfully the next,” the study’s author Dr. Steven Gregory told reporters. “Additionally we found that most babies had trouble concentrating during the day, often struggled to sleep at night, and could not be counted on to take care of themselves—all classic symptoms of manic depression.” Gregory added that nearly 100 percent of infants appear to suffer from the poor motor skills and impaired speech associated with Parkinson’s disease.
Unfortunately I’ve heard of children as young as 18 months being medicated so this isn’t all that far off the mark.
Also everyone has ups and downs, don’t they? And the rampant labeling of anyone who has any sort of mood fluctuation as bipolar should also be taken note of here. It’s called being human once again and darn, even babies display it!
Meds often make a minor mood problem into a big one.
