Extremities and passion are the bottom line of a child with Bipolar II.  A Bipolar II individual is ruled by an intensity, that sometimes gets misunderstood as out of control or hyper at times.  It can seem like symptoms of ADHD.  It’s not, and it’s easy to get caught up in buzz word diagnoses when really it’s a form of manic depression that calls for attention and education.

Here are some things that my parents never knew, and I wish someone had told them:

  • I’m not hyper sensitive, I’m Bipolar II
  • I’m not irritable, I’m Bipolar II
  • I’m not out of control, I’m Bipolar II
  • I’m not restless, I’m Bipolar II
