Customer Question
Hi, my (ex) partner...

Hi, my (ex) partner grow up in a religious cult, he was so scared to lose me and he try to deprogramed himself, i thought in this progress it will be better if he was alone, but with no social skills ( isolation from the cult) he didint know how to make friends, he got scared and heart broken because i didn't contact him ( be he didnt contact me either!) I am concerne because he look very lost and act bi-polar, i am not sure if in this process it's better de leave him alone or be around him. his energy going everywhere.. I contact him a day but he got very upset ( fear of abandon ) but i still dont understand why he never contact me either!! im concerne because i know him enough to know he got sducidal thought ( all his friends from the cult stop to socialize with him since 6 month )

Doctor's Assistant: OK. The Psychologist will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Psychologist should know?

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
