Im just curious if other people who r diagnosed with bi-polar have a high IQ? are good at math/ science patterns. Can think of many things at once,(which is great for analysis but evil when Im depressed) Do other people wish they were dumb and happy ? Is this disorder like an OCD but dark and self loathing? Does everything require an analysis? Do bipolar have ptsd type issues? Do you feel ADHD? Are sick a lot? Please comment:) im very very curious if its just me or?
Since you listed all these disorders, you must realize that they are all separate disorders. Bipolar itself doesn't have ptsd as part of it, or ADD/ADHD/OCE. You can have several disorders but they are part of each other.
High IQ? Look at the normal curve. Some people with bipolar have high, low, and average IQs. I happen to have a Ph.D. and it can be assumed I have a high IQ.
No, I am rarely sick.
Being dark and self loathing can, but does not have to, be part of a depressive episode. Does everyone require analysis? Actually, few people have analysis anymore. Many people with bipolar have therapy such as Cognitive-Behavioral, learning coping skills, DBT.
