Types of Psychological Disorders

This is to be used as a basic overview of this diseases Hitler might have had. Other resources should be supplemented as well. 


·     Bipolar disorder (BD) is a type of mood disorder. Everyone has occasional highs and lows in their moods. But people with bipolar disorder have extreme mood swings. They can go from feeling very sad, despairing, helpless, worthless, and hopeless (depression) to feeling as if they are on top of the world, hyperactive, creative, and grandiose (mania). This disease is called bipolar disorder because the mood of a person with bipolar disorder can alternate between two completely opposite poles, euphoric happiness and extreme sadness.

·    The extremes of mood usually occur in cycles. In between these mood swings, people with bipolar disorder are able to function normally, hold a job, and have a normal family life. The episodes of mood swings tend to become closer together with age.

·    Severe depression can be life-threatening. It may be associated with thoughts of suicide, actual acts of suicide, and even acts of homicide in some cases.

·    Extreme mania can lead to aggressive behavior, potentially dangerous risk-taking behaviors, and homicidal acts.

·    A number of people with bipolar disorder may turn to drugs and alcohol to "self-treat" their emotional disorder, resulting in substance abuse and dependence.

·     Most people start showing signs of bipolar disorder in their late teens (the average age of onset is 21 years). On occasion, some people have their first symptoms during childhood, but the condition can often be misdiagnosed at this age and improperly labeled as a behavioral problem.

Sociopath and/or Psychopath

·     Manipulative and Conning [They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used. They may dominate and humiliate their victims.]

·     Grandiose Sense of Self [Feels entitled to certain things as "their right."]

·    Pathological Lying [Has no problem lying coolly and easily and it is almost impossible for them to be truthful on a consistent basis. Extremely convincing and even able to pass lie detector tests.]

·     Lack of Remorse, Shame or Guilt [A deep seated rage, which is split off and repressed, is at their core. Does not see others around them as people, but only as targets and opportunities. Instead of friends, they have victims and accomplices who end up as victims. The end always justifies the means and they let nothing stand in their way.]

·     Shallow Emotions [When they show what seems to be warmth, joy, love and compassion it is more feigned than experienced and serves an ulterior motive.]

·     Early Behavior Problems/Juvenile Delinquency [Usually has a history of behavioral and academic difficulties, yet "gets by" by conning others. Problems in making and keeping friends; aberrant behaviors such as cruelty to people or animals, stealing, etc.]


·      Syphilis is a bacterially caused STDs, it is spread from person to person via body fluids, most commonly via unprotected sexual activity, but occasionally when infected sores come into contact with open cuts or scrapes.

·    Neurosyphilis refers to a site of infection involving the central nervous system (CNS). Neurosyphilis may occur at any stage of syphilis. Before the advent of antibiotics, it was typically seen in 25-35% of patients with syphilis.

·    General paresis, otherwise known as general paresis of the insane, is a severe manifestation of neurosyphilis. It is a chronic dementia that ultimately results in death in as little as 2–3 years. In general, patients have progressive personality changes, memory lossand poor judgment. In more rare instances, they can have psychosis, depression or mania. Imaging of the brain usually shows atrophy.

·     In the brain, third stage syphilis can lead to memory problems, mood changes and dementia, resulting in the need for nursing home care. Third stage syphilis can even cause death by affecting the vital organs.

Borderline personality disorder

·    Severe depression can be life-threatening. It may be associated with thoughts of suicide, actual acts of suicide, and even acts of homicide in some cases

·    Extreme mania can lead to aggressive behavior, potentially dangerous risk-taking behaviors, and homicidal acts.

·     A person with borderline personality disorder often has unstable relationships, low self-esteem, and problems with impulsive behavior, all of which begin by early adulthood.

·    A common feature of this disorder is fear of being left alone (abandoned), even if the threat of being abandoned is not real. This fear may lead to frantic attempts to hold on to those around you and may cause you to become too dependent on others. Sometimes you may react to the fear of being abandoned by rejecting others first before they can reject you. This erratic behavior can lead to troubled relationships in every area of your life.

·   Have a pattern of difficult relationships caused by alternating between extremes of intense admiration and hatred of others.

Depression is an illness that is marked by feelings of sadness, worthlessness or hopelessness, as well as problems concentrating and remembering details. Bipolar disorder is characterized by cycling mood changes, including severe highs (mania) and lows (depression).]

·     Most people with this illness have periodic episodes, called relapses, when their symptoms surface
