What is the proper abbreviation to use here to refer to Bipolar Disorder? Or does it not matter, we all know what you are talking about?

I just don't want to appear like and idiot using the wrong abbreviation all the time. I think I have been switching back and forth.

BD is Bipolar Disorder
BP is just Bipolar

Either way I don't think it matters. When I want to leave off the "disorder" I use BP.

IE: My husband is BP.
OR: My husband has BD. or My husband has been diagnosed with BD.
From the moment

From the moment i saw you,
I wanted to meet you
From the moment i met you, I wanted to know you
From the moment i knew you, I was in love with you
From the moment i loved you, I wanted to share my life with you
and from that moment to this moment and for the moments to come I will love you with all my heart.

Thanks! I guess either way, it means the same, so switching it up is okay.
