Is bipolar disorder just as bad as schizophrenia?
A debate I had with a friend recently. He says that schizophrenia is worse than bipolar disorder and kept bringing up movie nonsense. I with real world facts said that bipolar is just as bad since both illnesses can drive the person mad and make them do harmful actions. Sure it depends on the individual case itself, some are minor and some are severe. The more severe cases of bipolar disorder can share some of the same symptoms of schizophrenia such as hallucinations. I tend to be angered when people downplay bipolar disorder and say it's the same thing as depression, when really bipolar disorder is much different.
