I'm trying to find that out. From my reading I can tell you that bipolar disorder tangos with genius all the time.

Have you read the book "Touched with fire"? Is it good?

Ripley didn't suffer from bipolar disorder, did he?

Is Bi-polar the new name for Manic Depression?.................or are they 2 different conditions............?
i know in Britain we don't tend to use the Bi-polar tag............but that might just be because we're a bit slow to catch on...........

Bipolar is the same as manic depressive.

I just like to say "bipolar" because it evokes those lovely white bears.

Sidney Sheldon, about his career and life, writer, director, etc. the list goes on. It was an excellent book, he suffers also with Bi-Polar. Excellent book.
