The New York Times attempts to nail it.

Please go: Here for an important article. I knew that New York Times would do an incredible story on Bipolar Disorder someday.

Patient Voices: Bipolar Disorder

What is it like to have bipolar disorder? To be labeled "crazy"? How do you balance the ups and downs? Here, in their own words, are the stories of nine men and women living with bipolar disorder. (for more on bipolar)

Have your speakers on to listen to the multimedia of the original article.

I had to stop when I reached the man who almost hurt his baby, besides being disturbing I could somehow relate to his brand of psychosis, and it was too much for me.

Maybe now I understand how my Dad's kidney's could have failed, as he too, was afraid to be off the lithium medication, much like the man above explains.

You can learn so much. May we have compassion for one another.
