J Crew Mania

We learned about bipolar disorder/manic depression in our psychopathology class today. The lecturer, a psychiatrist, talked about one woman who, in a manic state, ordered one of every thing from the J Crew catalogue.

She also talked about the fact that people are most likely to kill themselves within 3 months of being hospitalized for depression. This, of course, is mostly due to "severity bias" i.e. people who were depressed enough to require hospitalization are the people most likely to commit suicide. However, if must make it extremely difficult on the staff who took care of the individual - I would never want to discharge anyone.
