Does Having Bipolar Disorder Mean That I Am Crazy?

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.
