Bi-polar people donn't need to go to jail. But that does not mean that a bi-polar person should not be held accountable for what they do. People with bi-polar disorder and their loved ones need to educate themselves about this illness.

All of them need to be able to recognize the signs of when they are about to cycle and some of the stressers in their life. If you have educated yourself on this disorder, you will know what to look for and it will help you take action to help keep the situation under control.

If you love someone with bi-polar disorder, love them enough to find out the things that triggers their highs, their lows, when you think they should be hospitalized. Love them enough to accept that they have a serious illness and sometimes they only hospitalization will get it under hand.

Screw you and your stupid ideas. Bipolar people run this world: Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill, Jim Carrey, Robert Downey Junior, Theodore Roosevelt, Mark Twain, the list goes on...

How many people that are really educated about bi-polar disorder or any other mental disorder are there in the United Stated? Not very many, from the sound of things.

The television depicts us as freaks of nature that are to be avoided at all costs. People think we are all dangerous and need to be put in a mental institution.

And being a person that deals with the disorder, I have learned something very, very important. Be careful who you tell. If I had it to do over, I would tell nobody other than my immediate family. It hurts to much to have people look at you like a freak. I know that it is out of lack of education about mental illness but it is still painful.

agree, I hear you , I'm careful who I tell , but it comes in handy when the jerks are afraid of you too, LOL !! I know a few people who steer clear of me because they think I'm crazy and I'm good with that because I don't want to deal with them either. educating myself about Bipolar Disorder was the best thing I did to help me keep a handle on things, I even got a degree in Psychology, it made a huge difference for me.

That video was trying to get what across? That bi-polar people are monsters and not human? That we have not feelings? Or could it mean that a lot of people are under educated about the illness, and are not willing to take the time to learn about it before entering a relationship with a bi-polar person?

The video was actually trying to express the fact that bipolar people have unique stregnths that are beneath the surface. We are hidden superman who will waste away emotionally if we are unaware of how to harness the potent fusion that controls us if we don't control it.
Kind of like the movie unbreakable. Remeber how Bruce Willis's character had a ruined marriage becasue he had something knawing at him constantly, like an undiscovered potential of greatness that mocked his lowly secutiy officer job. When he discovers his power and explores its dimensions and limitations, his marriage improves.
I feel that had I known that I had bp when I was still married, and I took medication and learned what triggers to look for, I might have channeled my gift and my weakness into much more positive directions.

Alas, it is too late for that now, I lost everything and derailed my career in an astonishingly short period of time. I am taking mediacations that make me feel off and I am lethargic, depressed and wracked with anxiety most the time.

But, even though I feel like crap physically most the time I still feel oddly upbeat. I know that much of the above symptoms are expected in someone who is coming off some of the most severe stressors and is adjusting to medication that makes everyone sick for the first few months.
Now that I know I'm bp I will master its strengths andf try to avoid the pitfalls.
And like the seemingly demure blond who beats off the robber in the video, I intend to fully utilize the unique properties of my personalty (i.e. creativity, hyperfocus, hypersensitivity [to sight and sound], unique ability to read people and influence them [Yes, this can be called manipulation if done for the wrong purposes] even hyposexuality when the occasion calls for it) when possible.
So, I am not normal, I recognize that, but tha need not be a bad thing. It is a gift if used right!

So, when you say that bp ought to go to jail, it is becasue matbe you were hurt by the wrong bp.
Sorry about that...
Do you think I should go to jail also??

I have loved someone with bipolar disorder, Gregmech. I also have friends with bipolar disorder. So why don't I truly appreciate it? Whatever happened to you gives you zero right to attack the people I love and care about.

People come to this site for support and guidance to overcome this horrendous disorder. It takes tremendous strength and courage to fight it. If someone see this and commits suicide I hope you'll all be very proud of yourselves.

Bipolar isn't something you can easily recognise in yourself. It feels normal to someone who has it. Of course it takes a long time to accept there's something wrong with your brain. Anyone would be shocked and quite possibly offended to hear they had a mental illness. Then after that adjustment you have to find the best treatment, with all the side effects of medication and conflicting information over whether or not you should take it in books and the media.

Yes, I have experienced life 'on the other side' of bipolar disorder. All the challenges we went through (yes we, not just me)were worth it and my life is richer for the experience. Everyone with this condition is different. I know one thing for sure, people with this condition don't need to be blamed for their suffering.

I didn't find the video to be very entertaining, however, there have been moments in my life when I was just like that woman. I am Bipolar and I'm not afraid to tell anyone. Being bipolar does not make us monsters! When left unmedicated and uneducated, a person with bipolar can a danger to themselves or society. But there are so many programs and places people who are suffering can go now to get the help they need. If there were more people who cared enough to guide and help people with bipolar disorder, rather than call us "MONSTERS", the ignorant, misinformed and uneducated people on the disease may be a little more compassionate. Would you say the same about someone with diabetes? Lock them away from society? Bipolar Disorder is an illness, not a lifestyle choice. Grow up and look for a reason, not blame.

I am an advocate for mental illness and am also bipolar. I am in the process of writing a book about what it's been like growing up with bipolar disorder. My goal is to educate as many people as I can about bipolar and other mental illness. It's time the stigma is removed and we are seen as regular people with an illness.
