Wordless Wednesday: Bipolar the basics



I just want to add that bipolar is spelled b-i-p-o-l-a-r.  It is not spelled bi-polar.  Also the term manic depression means the exact same thing as bipolar.  Manic depression is just the older name for bipolar.  In my opinion, I like the term manic depression better, because it describes what we go through.  Naming it  bipolar, with bi meaning two, makes it sound like we only go through two states or moods, which is not true.    What about mixed states?  Oops, that's enough talking about bipolar on a Wordless Wednesday post!
