bipolar minds are unique

I've often found that many of my friends & family that have been diagnosed with bipolar have a unique way of thinking.

Yes, they have their up's, down's, & other sorts of emotions...but usually this is what helps them cope. They have a different way of seeing things, feeling emotions, & doing things. Most I know are very loud, but very loving. I find them very unique. I love the one's I've gotten to know. :)

I don't hope this comes off as rude...but what exactly is "normal"? ;) bipolar is considered some sort of abnormal, along with depression, but maybe they see more than I ever could...& for what the world really is? Maybe I'm abnormal?? :)

My Dsis was also diagnosed, & it is hard...especially when it came to anger issues. But she also was such a genius & could be so loving...just hard to tell which mood she would be in some days :/

Love seeing positive posts about bipolar. My 14 year old brother (who I am raising) has bipolar disorder and my 4 year old is about to be diagnosed with it also. they are both incredibly smart, funny and caring individuals. my brother told me his therapist was telling him that there are a lot of famous and successful people out there who have bipolar disorder and she said the world needs these people and he said it made him feel really good and like theres a purpose to him "being different"

My dd 4 1/2 can be sweet as can be. She can behave perfectly. On the other hand, sometimes she acts like a spoiled brat, a real bitch. Tantrums, acts rude to her tutor we have at home, she's well behaved in school, though. Could she be bipolar? I ask why she gets so crazy and she answers "I was tired." She can be really stubborn or really sweet. Sometimes, you can talk to her like an adult. Sometimes, she throws herself on the floor if she's frustrated.
