Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello I believe I can help you with your concern
I am sorry that you family had you involuntarily committed in a hospital because they wanted to keep you away from your ex-boyfriend
In the United States there are three criteria for having someone involuntarily committed. 1) A danger to themselves 2) A danger to others 3) Gravely Disabled (where the individual cannot take care of themselves, like feed, clothe, and shelter)
So your family cannot have you involuntarily committed for an extended period of time without proving any one of those criteria in a civil court before a judge.
Do you think me being in love with the type of guy that my ex-bf was was a sign of bipolar disorder like the psychiatrists in my country claim?
I'm kind of doubting my family paid off the psychiatrists here to claim that one of the symptoms of my bipolar disorder was not agreeing to what my family wanted for me.
Being in Love is not a sign of Bipolar Disorder. Typically being lustful and promiscuous are signs of impulsivity that are associated with a manic episode. If you feel love for this man while you are stable (not in a manic or depressive episode) then most likely your feelings are genuine. Many individuals with Bipolar Disorder have fallen in love.
You as an individual may not agree with what your family wants, that may have nothing to do with Bipolar Disorder. A good medical professional will look for what is in your best interests, not your family's best interests.
the thing is not to say things that are bad about my country,but a lot of corruption are going on in every sector of my country
That happens in some countries, and I am sorry that you are a victim of that corruption.
so maybe the doctors i went to see are corrupt as well
It is possible they are corrupt or wrong on the diagnostic criteria as well. Here in the United States, there has been a more evolution to helping and understanding individuals with mental health disorders, rather than just locking them up (The United States used to lock large numbers of individuals with mental health disorders for long periods of time, but not anymore).
Thank you.Have a nice day.
Anytime, I am always happy to help.
Is there anything else I can do to assist you?
No,that's about it:)Thanks:)
