I’m writing a book about my life. In my research I watched a documentary called The Stephen Fry Story: The Secret Life of the Manic Depressive (Click here to watch the 2 hour documentary ). It’s a fascinating portrait of Bipolar Disorder. It can help those of us who have it feel not so alone, and the people who love us understand us more.
Where Do You Fit In?
The greater general population travel down a standard ‘road’ in terms of their moods and personalities. The bigger personalities often wander all over the road from side to side, but they are still within the borders of ‘normal’. People with Bipolar Disorder go way beyond those boundaries on both sides of that road. It is a very difficult life which can be dangerous in either direction.
