Re: can PTSD be the cause of Bipolar Disorder?
I understand your situation 100%. My father served in the Gulf War and is having the same problems. But PTSD is caused by your traumatic situation over seas...and the bipolar has always been there, it is hereditary. But being that you have PTSD it can set off your bipolar, and along with bipolar and PTSD you will notice you now may have anxiety, sleep insomnia, and many other things...many vets have problems with coming home. (not your fault) there is a saying that is very true The men may come home, but there never truly home. Because there mind will always be over seas. Which will cause the bipolar to snap.
