I am bipolar . to be honest, the depression part doesn't really present itself for me. I don't get all sad and sucked up, staying in bed , over eating , under eating ...and so on. my mania is my super power! I am not on any medications. tried all of that. I smoke Marijuana, it works well for me with my mania being in hyper drive. so I guess my point is, not everyone with "bipolar" fits into these little boxes. we are not all the same. Depression is not something I experience. I honestly dislike depressed people, because I am so "high" on mania, I can't relate to it. at all.
