I wrote this book, while sleeping on the floor in a brand new apartment during a very hot summer, while experiencing a life style modification. I was consumed with reading the Bible. I promised God that if he was supernatural, then I would be righteous. To God Be The Glory! I've stumbled many times, almost sleeping back on that very floor, but He hasn't failed me ever. I talk a lot about Job in this 12-chapter, 48 page book.
In this book I identify 7 attributes that escalate into destruction for anyone with Untreated Bipolar Disorder Mania. Each attribute is further illustrated by five personalities sharing their personal experiences regarding the 7 attributes which are as follows:
3. Complete Mania
4. Financial Ruin
5. Sexual Promiscuity
6. Penal System or Extended Unemployment
This book has 54 pages.
Psychosis is 42 pages describing mental and psychological abuse.
The man you marry is not the man you divorce. No one is responsible, yet everyone is responsible. This book has 66 pages.
God has a sense of humor. Image the thrill of starting a Ph.D., program and later being diagnosed with a severe mental illness. It chronicles the events from the initial phase of my Bipolar Disorder I diagnosis to me obtaining my Ph.D. in Chemistry. I wrote about everything that was preventing me from achieving my goal. This book has 93 pages.
Letters, Essays, Politics, Erotica
These books have 62 and 102 pages respectively, which means that I tried to be kind more than not!
"THE WOMAN WITH AN ISSUE OF BLOOD"
Autoimmune hemolytic anemia is a group of disorders characterized by a malfunction of the immune system that produces autoantibodies, which attack red blood cells as if they were substances foreign to the body. Some people have no symptoms, and other people are tired, short of breath, and pale.
Auto Immune Haemolytic Anaemia (AIHA) is one of the most common types of acquired haemolytic anaemias. Its main cause is auto-antibody mediated rapid destruction of Red Blood Cells (RBCs). Demonstration of a positive Direct Antiglobulin Test also known as Coomb's test, against these autoantibodies is the crucial serological assay in the diagnosis of AIHA.
This routinely used test has the disadvantage of low sensitivity and does not detect low levels of red cell auto antibodies leading to false negative results sometimes. Flow cytometry can effectively diagnose such patients with low levels of autoantibodies.
The direct antiglobulin test (DAT), introduced by Robert Royston Amos Coombs and colleagues in 1945, is a simple test that can help differentiate immune from nonimmune causes of hemolysis. The DAT uses an antihuman globulin (AHG; also known as antiglobulin) specific reagent, typically anti-IgG and anti-C3, that leads to agglutination of IgG and complement coated red blood cells (RBCs). Even in normal subjects, circulating RBCs may have small amounts of IgG and complement on their surface.
Therefore, a DAT may be positive in healthy individuals, depending on the sensitivity of the technique and reagents used. Positive DATs are reported in 1:1,000 up to 1:14,000 healthy blood donors, and in approximately 1:6 to 1:100 of hospitalized patients without any obvious signs of hemolysis or hemolytic anemia.
The anti-globulin test was developed to detect human blood group immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies by agglutination. The negative charge on the surface of red cells prevents them from coming closer than within 20 nm of each other, thus IgG antibodies are unable to cross-link red cells as the Fab arms, even when fully extended, are unable to span this distance. On the other hand, the Fc portion of cell-bound antibody projects outwards sufficiently far to allow an anti-IgG antibody to cross-link between IgG molecules on one cell and those bound to neighboring red cells, thus bringing about agglutination (Figure 1). The development of the test occurred following the discovery of the Rh blood group system in the early 1940s. It was soon realized that there were two types of antibody involved in this system – those that would directly agglutinate red cells in saline (retrospectively identified as IgM antibodies), and the so-called ‘incomplete’ or ‘blocking’ antibodies (now identified as IgG) which would not directly agglutinate but would block the action of the direct agglutinators.
