Page 2 Bi-polar Disorder
I'm not really that well-versed in the symptoms of bipolar disorder, but there are some members of my family who are affected. My nephew is either suicidal or homicidal, unless he's on his regular meds. Then he's the sweetest guy, helpful, funny, smart, dedicated, hard-working, etc. The biggest problem, I think, is when the person is feeling good (I.e. taking the meds), they decide they don't need to take the meds anymore. Then, of course, everything goes back to bad. It's a vicious cycle.
