Actually I am (was) quite famous (or should that be INfamous)
Long running story, but here comes the short version...
Former P-Doc under the control of abusive and over-controling parents had me treated as Type II Bi-Polar for seven years. Meds and all.
Last year I broke the chain and was correctly diagnosed as abused (a VERY brief description).
Technically I am closer to suffering from forty years of P.T.S.D.
I'm no longer qualified to comment on being BI-P so I will refrain.
The last time I tried to help I got myself into all sorts of trouble...
Thanks for asking though.
