Very cool article; thanks for sharing. It got me thinking! I just emailed my mom to see if she thinks maybe my granpa had it. I know of at least one relative that is diagnosed but neither of my parents have it and neither do my siblings. Anyway, very interesting!

My mother had bipolar and I just found out my brother does, too. I don't know anything about my grandparents or extended family so really couldn't say on them...

I know my sister has ADHD and so does 2 of her 3 kids, and ADHD kind of goes along with BP, or so I've read [ADHD, bipolar, and schizophrenia ... and one other, I can't remember, are kind of the "main four" psychological things that run in families; one member might have ADHD and another might have bipolar and a third might have both, things like that>.

Some of the articles that BP mag prints are really interesting; I recommend it to anyone.
