Help Needed for Bipolar Disorder Research
VickiAS posted:
Hi Everyone,
My name is Vicki Smith and I am currently researching the link between creativie eminence and bipolarity through Swinburne University, Australia.

This study aims to ascertain why these two concepts co-occur so reliabily as well as some of the triggers asssociated with highly creative behaviour and bipolarity.

Please help by participating in an online survey at this link:

Participating is completely anonymous and unaffected family members and those suffering with bipolar are encouraged to participate.

Thank you very much for your help.

Warm Regards,

Vicki Smith

Hi Vicki,

I'm not sure there is a connection, seeing as how so many without bipoalar are also amazingly creative, but I really wouldn't know either...just a hunch.
I'll gladly do your survey within the next day or so, but first I need to know if you can stop, save and restart. I read the introduction on your link, but that option didn't seem to be mentioned (or if it was, then I will re-read in a little while). I have some spinal injures and recently had surgery, so 45 min is more than I'm able to sit here in one stretch.
