Please don't look up the definition on the internet. It will hurt my survey and question. I want to know how much people typically understand and what the common misconceptions are. This is only for me to understand people and how the public will usually view me when I inform them I'm bipolar.
There are no right or wrong answers. I'm gonna give MHO to whoever posts the most beliefs they have about bipolar.

They'll have ups and downs, and sometimes manic episodes. I know one girl who when she's manic, she likes lots of sex, she says after she feels like shit and wishes she doesn't do that kinda thing. I used to know a girl who when she was manic would just party hard and dissappear off to party for weeks at a time then randomly turn up again.
If I'm honest I don't know much about bi polar, and I've never really delved deeply into finding out about it. All I know is that it causes drastic mood changes, all moods, not just happy and sad. I think also, from things I've seen, is that it comes part and parcel with depression and they'll often have times where they're just really down for a while and it's hard to get out of. I think, like any illness (physical or mental) that it affects everybody differently and some will have worse symptoms while some have more manageable symptoms. I think also that with the right support or plans in place for the bad times, sufferers will probably be able to lead a full life and do anything they want.1

i believe these people contribute to our society in various ways people without it CAN NEVER contribute. they can create this awesome art and music too. they are definitely different people. i admire them really. i mean everybody suffers in life and everybody has their negative aspects.
i know they have rather extreme mood swings. im thinking it can maybe also be a gift as much as it can be a curse.
I've read on various websites were men come together to debate women and dating and relationships and they all say to stay away from the like the plague. i think thats bullshit. these people should not be discriminated against. they can be genuinely awesome people.0
