Question: Does having bipolar disorder mean that I am crazy?
Answer: People with bipolar disorder can certainly think differently than other people, perhaps have a different emotional responses to things than other people, but crazy is a pejorative term. Bipolar disorder is a medical illness that is due to dysfunction in the central nervous system or the brain.
And to demean it, such a serious condition, such a poignant and heartbreaking condition, with a term like crazy is just not justice.
