My mother was bipolar too. Back then they called it manic depressive, plus she was paranoid schitzophrenic. and alcoholic. Plus abused medications. All of my sisters are alcoholic and I know one is bipolar and I am guessing my other two are by the way that they acted when they were alive. I have clinical depression, but bipolar meds (abilify) help me, so I feel like I have a little bit, but don't get the manic energy, usually get frustrated and angry. Though when I get angry I do get energy. But yes, I agree that it is genetic.
