    There are a number of articles in the news about bipolar disorder. I'll post a couple of links; you might want to check Google News section on Medicine. There seem to be a lot of different articles based on the same research.

    Thanks, Sara. There's nothing here I didn't really know first-hand, but I always like validation of my problem. My moodswings are severe and chronic without medications and, yes, it can impair you in many ways, and even get you in such an either exuberant or depressed state that you break the law. I appreciate reading articles like this. People tend not to understand bipolar.
