    So what?

    Type II bipolar disorder is a more mild form of the disease, and it's not shocking that many creative and successful people are bipolar. They use their mania to their advantage and suffer through their depression.

    Martin Luther translated the entire bible into German in five days. Do you think he could have done that if he wasn't completely manic?

    Naw, it's real.

    It's just difficult to pinpoint. Seems to be hormonal and behavioral...as with any behavioral diagnosis, the behavior can trigger the chemicals and vice versa.

    It sucks, wish her the best.

    You wish.

    I doubt anyone whose ever dealt with someone who is manic would deny that it's a real disorder.

    Great. So you've dealt with mania?

    If you call that "normative" behavior, then I think we've found the issue.

    Preventing bipolar relapse with web therapy
