So, I mean, I—no, I didn’t want to know that I was in a manic phase. It’s not—like she always wanted to be called manic depressive, and that “bipolar” always sounded weird to her.

JAIME LOWE: It’s funny, because my concerns were probably more professional than they were about being bipolar and coming out as bipolar, just because, like I said earlier, I am—I have no filter. Like you need to just like back up and stop talking to me. AMY GOODMAN: But you know how you want people to respond to you. It's now called bipolar disorder. I think that’s why it’s, you know, mental.

And then you embark on this journey, writing Mental: Lithium, Love, and Losing My Mind. AMY GOODMAN: So what does that mean in terms of people’s access to lithium? Every year some 44 million Americans experience mental illness, of which almost 6 million are diagnosed as bipolar. The rest of the medications are more for depression, and I suffer more from mania.

He’s been a loving father my entire life and very supportive and trying to understand what all of this is, as all my parents have always tried to do, because it’s not easy.

She points to statistics published by the CDC, the Centers for Disease Control, that show the use of prescription medication for antidepressants among all ages increased nearly 400 percent over the last two decades. NERMEEN SHAIKH: Well, one of the things that you point out—I mean, a part of the reason that this memoir is so remarkable is that, you know, there is still a lot of stigma attached to mental illness, so it took a lot of courage for you to write as you did. AMY GOODMAN: Can you think of a moment where someone intervened, when you were pushing them away, that made an enormous difference in your life? And I think that then each episode is also a trauma in itself, because they’re really, really intense, really, really kind of—they sort of shift the way your life moves, and it’s like a different narrative then. JAIME LOWE: Right. AMY GOODMAN: Well, I want to thank you so much for being with us, Jaime Lowe, author and journalist. And it just triggered this really, really intense—it was probably a good six months where I was back and forth between New York and L.A., because I wouldn’t stay in L.A., where my parents were trying to like help me get better. “I was unformed,” she says, adding “I was less formed.” She didn’t have a choice about taking lithium in the same way McDermott at first felt he did.

NERMEEN SHAIKH: According to the American Psychiatric Association, bipolar disorders are, quote, “brain disorders that cause changes in a person’s mood, energy and ability to function.” Bipolar disorder used to be called manic depression.

I’ll see someone, and I’m like, “Oh, I recognize that outfit.” Like, it looks a lot like something that I would have loved when I was not on my meds. I had been experiencing just so much tumult in my life that to have something that kind of evened everything out was good. But according to the medical system we have today, they’re there to simply write out prescriptions. JAIME LOWE: Well, I’m lucky that the medications have worked, too, because they don’t work for a lot of people. In 255 pages she seeks to unravel the soul of … Like there were these enormous pipes outside the window, and it was just the generator of the hospital, but I had this idea that they were poison gas and that it was going to be like another Holocaust and we were all going to die. And so, that’s where I ended up. And, you know, I had accused my dad of being physically abusive. It was about Ol’ Dirty Bastard from the Wu-Tang Clan, and he was diagnosed schizophrenic. So—. So, and then, as—like from ’81 to now, like there's been a steady decrease in terms of funding and in terms of just even awareness of how much we can take care of people. I don’t know. And it was like horrifying and just like this thing that made everything a billion times worse. Your parents are divorced, so you say you’ve got, you know, many, many parents. And the psychiatrist with the MD being able to prescribe—. NERMEEN SHAIKH: Well, I mean, one of the things that you say is that there was a huge shift in public policy regarding mental health in the mid-’80s that made healthcare so much—healthcare for mental illness so much more difficult to access for so many people. JAIME LOWE: Thank you so much for having me. I think Carrie Fisher has—I’m going to paraphrase her, because I can’t actually say her words perfectly, because she’s amazing, but she’s basically said “bipolar” is like a sexual bear. AMY GOODMAN: What was—what did it mean to you that your illness was named? I still get really anxious when, you know, there’s too much work on my plate. And so I don’t know how I would react to me, if I were in the reverse position. For me, it does. JAIME LOWE: So, that was—that’s a really good question. JAIME LOWE: I don’t know why it was changed, because it doesn’t—I think “manic depression” actually captures what I go through perfectly. And I think part of the reason it was seamless was because it had to be. AMY GOODMAN: And so, what did they give you? I really am not functioning the way that I should be. And I think that you can sometimes see, from—like you can see yourself acting and say, “This is not what I would normally do, but this is what I’m doing.” I think that because it’s been thought of as a weakness, people are afraid to kind of say that they’ve experienced that, too. Jaime, it’s great to have you with us and to continue this conversation. So how do you want those family members to respond to you? She shares and investigates her experience with mental illness and the drugs used to combat it. I sometimes just tell them to call my mom or my dad or my stepdad or my stepmom. JAIME LOWE: I think there’s still a stigma because it’s thought of as a type of weakness, that you can’t control yourself, that you can’t control your environment, that you can’t control the world around you, because you’re reacting in a way that is outside of your norm. 2. And that was like, I just started acting really weird. And maybe that’s because I was diagnosed when I was 16, and it’s always been kind of a part of who I am. But I think that I didn’t want to only be a writer who was writing about myself, and I didn’t only want to be a writer who was writing about mental illness, even though the mental illness was something I was fascinated by and I wanted to know more about, and I felt like there was definitely like deep investigation to be done there, and especially because it touched me so personally. In 2011, Humphrey set out on his goal: to meet and photograph one person a day for a year. I thought I knew secret tunnels to Neverland. AMY GOODMAN: And why did you call your book Mental? It was actually—I think I was talking about it with you earlier, and I said mid-'80s, and I should have said early ’80s, because Carter actually had a Mental Health Systems Act that he was going to—that he had put in place, that would have had community care. NERMEEN SHAIKH: In what sense, though? Melissa Carroll, artist, cancer paintings, Ewing Sarcoma. Like, I don’t want to do this to rest my life. AMY GOODMAN: And have you felt any—any effects of writing this book or writing the piece you did in The New York Times, magazines, publications you’d want to write for about many different issues, raising this? A lot of people feel side effects. You know, that was one of the few things in the book where I was trying to really find a reason for that, because the symptoms are so bizarre. Now, that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to do, you know, five days a week of Freudian analysis or Jungian theory, but I think like having a support system, somebody who’s there, who’s talking to you and who you’re talking to and who can identity when things are kind of falling apart, that outside person is a really important factor that’s completely missing from our healthcare system. So, it was present in the Big Bang. But lithium is—the problem is, is that there aren’t more tests done on lithium for other applications, because there isn’t a market for it.

He was—as an elder person, he sort of had a bout of depression that was pretty serious. studio. AMY GOODMAN: I mean, isn’t this an absolutely critical talk—I mean, discussion? JAIME LOWE: I mean, I think that they all were trying to intervene at some point. And similarly, it’s often very difficult for people to accept that they need medication for mental illness. And I think that a lot of—you know, there was this comprehensive study of research from the past 40 years that basically said that sexual assault victims are associated with mental illness.
