It's not a disease, it's a disorder. I'm sorry, I'm really nitpicky about these types of things. Please don't take offense. And for all of those wondering about Bipolar disorder - there are two types. One is Bipolar Disorder and another is Bipolar Disorder with Psychotic features. Both explain themselves but more info: http://www.webmd.com/bipolar-disorder/default.htm Bipolar Disorder http://bipolar.about.com/od/psychoticfeatures/Psychotic_Features_of_Bipolar_Disorder.htm With Psychotic Features I encourage all of you to google for more information if you are curious .
