What I meant, was that I was saying the same thing that you did, ie. psychological factors translating into effects on the nervous system, whereas you said it in the words "the mind sculpts the brain".

I don't have time to look into that, but if it is psychosomatic, then it is a primarily psychical disorder. I'm not saying you should not treat the somatic symptoms, but you need to address its roots if you're seeking to "cure" it.

I prefer not to interpret it. It looks like I could be at it full time for days, and there would still be more to read. I'll just address it the same way I did the first time: "The psyche is powerful!".

As I said before, it is neurological in the sense that it involves the nervous system. It is not neurological by the definition that it is treated primarily by neurologists. I would go so far as to call it neuropsychiatric. I don't find that it belongs in the company of neurological diseases like Alzheimer's or epilepsy.

> If so, is it because, unlike the diseases listed by Google, Bipolar Disorder is often, but not always, precipitated by chronic psychological stress? Is the psychological stress itself Bipolar Disorder, or is it but one of many contributors to its etiology? How is it that the majority of people who experience the same amount of stress escape Bipolar Disorder?

There are genetic vulnerabilties and other factors at play. That involves the nervous system. I never said it's only in the psyche.

I am saying it is a (neuro)psychiatric condition. It's more like OCD than Parkinson's disease. That is not to say it doesn't involve the nervous system; I'm sure OCD does too.
