i dont have bipolar. i have depression brought on by the stress of cronic illness. as laura was saying in another post, bipolar can be preceded by large amounts of stress. my thought is that in C.D.,
the disease itself can create large amounts of stress in your life as it can control what and when you are able to do things and as you are much more aware than me it creates stress for any number of reasons. over a long period of time i'm sure the stress causes depression that can become overwhelming resulting in bipolar. that is just an observation though and something to think about.
my heart goes out to you both.
