good find. very clear definitions. I've never seen the bipolars I-IV laid out like that before.

Hey there,

I have read that before and I am glad you pulled it up for old and new members.  It is very easy to read and clarifies the disorder well.

If you have not read it please do, if you have read it, read it again, great review.

Hi Olivia

That is one of the best descriptions that I have ever read, especially to pass onto people who don't know about the disorder.

Thanks for posting this, I have passed it onto members of our family.

Cheers!

Dear Olivia,
 
Thank you for posting this article.  Just having been diagnosed with Bipolar, I am still trying to understand it and learn more about and this article makes things pretty clear.  I have passed this on to my Dad to help him understand it too.
 
Take care and thanks again,

Thank you for posting this Olivia. My sister is bipolar and so was my mother, but back then it was called manic depressive. She was also paranoid schitzophrenic. I think I have a little hypomania, but am considered neurotic depressive. I think.
