Depends on the treatment portfolio. I was involved with a woman for about two years who was bipolar. She was fine as long as she was on her meds. The real problem was that she was too much steeped in the limousine liberal mindset; every time the NYT ran an opinion piece asserting that conservatives were racists, the facade peeled away and she would go off on the subject for days.

BPD is not dealt with by meds,in fact meds are useless with personality disorders.

 

Dialectical behaviour therapy jhas proven most useful, but that is a fairly recent (last 15 years) development and usually requires twice weekly group sessions for six months and then once a week for six months.

But isn't the Americans got psy pills for everything? That's the way they learn that Healthcare is costly.

You cannot cure alcoholism or other addictions with a pill.  Sometimes alcoholism etc are actually symptoms of personality disorders.

 

I am aware of one case where a man was being treated for bi-polar by a well intended general practitioner but when he was reviewed  as a part of a family law matter a much better psychiatrist figured out very quickly that he had a very severe personality disorder and the meds he was on were actually making his behaviour much worse.

Yeah, Morgan epitomises everything that went wrong with Fleet Street. I shudder to think how many British soldiers lost their lives due to his 'scoop'.

Yes, he is that big a wanker. Dont let the fact he has his tounge in Trumps crevice deceive you.

Daily Mirror editor Piers Morgan has been sacked after the newspaper conceded photos of British soldiers abusing an Iraqi were fake.

In a statement the Mirror said it had fallen victim to a "calculated and malicious hoax" and that it would be "inappropriate" for Morgan to continue.

The Queen's Lancashire Regiment (QLR) said the Mirror had endangered British troops by running the pictures.

Roger Goodman, of the QLR, said the regiment now felt "vindicated".

Mr Goodman added: "It is just a great pity it has taken so long... and that so much damage has been done in the meantime."

 

   

At a news conference in Preston on Friday afternoon, the regiment demonstrated to reporters aspects of uniform and equipment which it said proved the photographs were fake.

The regiment's Brigadier Geoff Sheldon said the vehicle featured in the photographs had been located in a Territorial Army base in Lancashire and had never been in Iraq.

He said the QLR's reputation had been damaged by the Mirror and asked the newspaper to apologise because the evidence they were staged was "overwhelming".

The Conservatives said they hoped lessons had been learned from the row.

Deputy leader and foreign affairs spokesman, Michael Ancram, said: ''Looking at the facts objectively, this is the right thing for Piers Morgan to have done.

"The photos that were published in the Daily Mirror have done great damage to the reputation of our troops, who are serving under some of the most difficult conditions in Iraq.''

'Recruiting poster for al-Qaeda'

The photos published in the Mirror on 1 May appeared to show British troops torturing an Iraqi detainee.

In one picture a soldier is seen urinating on a hooded man while in another the hooded man is being hit with a rifle in the groin.

Colonel Black, a former regiment commander of the QLR, said the pictures put lives in danger and acted as a "recruiting poster" for al-Qaeda.

However one of the Mirror's informants - Soldier C - said there had been abuse in Iraq.

The Territorial Army solider has been questioned by Royal Military Police after talking about his claims to the Daily Mirror.

On ITV's Tonight With Trevor McDonald he said: "It did go on, it wasn't all the army, it wasn't systematic but it did happen."

Downing Street refused to comment on the issue, saying it was a matter for the Mirror board.

The BBC's Nicholas Witchell said it appeared Piers Morgan remained unrepentant right to the end

"According to one report Mr Morgan refused the demand to apologise, was sacked and immediately escorted from the building," he said.

Morgan will be replaced on a temporary basis by his deputy, Des Kelly.

The newspaper released a statement saying: "The Daily Mirror published in good faith photographs which it absolutely believed were genuine images of British soldiers abusing an Iraqi prisoner.

"However there is now sufficient evidence to suggest that these pictures are fakes and that the Daily Mirror has been the subject of a calculated and malicious hoax.

"The Daily Mirror therefore apologises unreservedly for publishing the pictures and deeply regrets the reputational damage done to the QLR and the Army in Iraq.

"The paper will continue to cooperate fully with the investigation.

"The board of Trinity Mirror has decided that it would be inappropriate for Piers Morgan to continue in his role as editor of the Daily Mirror and he will therefore be stepping down with immediate effect."

The Sun newspaper had offered a £50,000 reward for "information about the fake Mirror photos" but withdrew the offer following the sacking of Morgan.

 

 

It comes to something when the Sun has a truer moral compass than Piers Morgan. That really is plumbing the depths. :D

I generally put him in the same rough category as Bill Maher.  Both have said or done some pretty bad stuff and I basically don't like either, and both of them occasionally make a valid point or observation that merits acknowledgment of same.

 

Though Maher was funnier when he was a jackass.

Has Maher fabricated evidence of American war crimes and published it in a major newspaper?

No, he has not. He has openly hoped for the economy to crash because it would hurt Trump politically, which just makes him a dick.

One is a comedian commentator offering opinion. The other was offering defamatory and endangering lies purported to be news.

I readily concede there is a category difference. However, mentally my mind has them both in the box called "people I don't like who sometimes have a valid point."

That label on that box of one's mind probably has "Wisdom" stenciled on it.

 

It can also be hard for one to open. I speak only from personal experience.

Morgan's getting fired after being held responsible for the fake Iraq pictures is far from being his only offence.

 

His wikipedia entry covers it well enough. Financial dealings that were bad enough to be censured by the Press Complaints Commission, but not quite enough to get him jailed, apparently. Banshee has already mentioned the phone hacking.

 

The "Feud" section is particularly telling, as it's clear he used his power as Mirror editor to attempt to harass people who had criticised him publicly, notably Ian Hislop and Clive Anderson.
