Famous People with BiPolar Disorder
We found this post about famous people with bipolar disorder at MD Junction. The comments from members had the same questions we have. Did they just get the right meds? How are they so high-functioning.
The video of famous people with bipolar disorder is essentially a slide show of the famous, past and present. There’s a preponderance of writers, actors, poets and musicians and other creative types. There are also theologians and heads of state, physicists and politicians, academics and athletes and business people.
When you think about it, there aren’t many famous people with bipolar disorder who are cooks and factory workers, or electricians and plumbers, simply because there aren’t many famous short-order cooks or factory workers or teachers or trades people. That doesn’t mean the don’t exist, it just means they aren’t famous. People in all walks of life may be afflicted. The ones who are famous may be in a better position than most to seek treatment for it…yet some don’t get it under control.
Whatever your occupation, get help to live fully. You don’t need to be famous to be worth a full, balanced life.
