A lot of people I know say they are bipolar, but most of the time I think it's just an excuse. Most of them are stable except for a few regular outbursts when they get angered, things that anyone would be offended by... I really don't understand how they are bipolar.

Whats worse is that younger generations start claiming to be bipolar, and I believe most of the time they're just seeking attention.

Now I'm not saying that everyone is using it as an excuse, but recently, everyone is bipolar... it's almost getting frustrating to hear them whine and complain... and overused.

What's funny is that apparently my doctors say I am bipolar, which I guess is something I've been dealing with for years now so it's not something I'm struggling with.

But seriously, no one can distinguish between a person who's having a bad day and someone is is bipolar.

So my question is. Do you believe that Bipolar Disorder is an illness or an excuse?

I'll show you bi-polar:

:blink:

Anyway, I don't think anyone can use it as an excuse anymore since they have medicine for it. That's like me saying I can't run because I have asthma.

I think it feels like major PMS.


Signs and symptoms of the depressive phase of bipolar disorder include persistent feelings of sadness, anxiety, guilt, anger, isolation, or hopelessness; disturbances in sleep and appetite; fatigue and loss of interest in usually enjoyable activities; problems concentrating; loneliness, self-loathing, apathy or indifference; depersonalization; loss of interest in sexual activity; shyness or social anxiety; irritability, chronic pain (with or without a known cause); lack of motivation; and morbid suicidal ideation.[4] In severe cases, the individual may become psychotic, a condition also known as severe bipolar depression with psychotic features.
