Please stop allowing drug ads to claim that they correct a 'chemical imbalance' when there is no such thing as a 'Chemical imbalance'. I am manic-depressive, which only means I swing a little higher and a little lower than average people. I have mastered both manics and depressions for my benefit. For 35 years I have been saying everywhere, I am no more 'chemically imbalanced' than a black has a 'pgment imbalance.'. I am different in chemicals in my brain - that's all - and it's not 'sick'.
