I. Being bi-polar doesn’t automatically make you “crazy” (thanks, U.S. media!)
Heck no. Many people who are bipolar do not kill people and drive their car into a wall. Many of us seek treatment when we are feeling “out of control”. As for others, it usually does not end up in violence or other forms of aggression.
As for teenagers, however, that is a different story. Teens many not understand what is happening to them and choose to act out. Please have some sort of vague understanding when you’re dealing with a younger person with mental illness. It is only hurting them when you yell at them and say “just act normal”.
