I always wonder, what comes first, the drug abuse or the crazy?
The schizophrenic/bipolar/manic types I have known have always used drugs heavily. At least in their past.
Do the drugs make them crazy, or, do they start using drugs to control an already crazy mind?
I’ve heard arguments on both sides and really don’t know.
My brother was diagnosed as a sociopath at 13, 1969-70, before drugs were commonly available at any elementary school. His behavior was always ‘bad’ even as a small child. Drugs were an addition to that behavior when he reached late teens. He would steal money from mom’s purse, steal her valium, steal her cigs and steal the alcohol we had in the house. He, in my opinion, was born that way..................
