Bipolar Wikimedians

List of Wikipedians who have Bipolar disorder.

  • Noel I inherited the susceptibility from my Mom, who also had it. I've had it since I was very young (not sure when, but certainly by the time I was a teenager).
  • Animated Cascade
  • Maprovonsha172 18:30, 7 May 2005 (UTC) Inherited the suscepitibility from my mom as Noel has, and, thanks to my mom, the tendency was actualized. ;)[]
  • Arkady Rose 01:13, 28 July 2005 (UTC)[]
  • Milena Popovic I have no idea about whom I inherited this from... but I found out I was a bipolar a few years ago.
  • AmosWolfe 12:47, 9 November 2005 (UTC)[]
  • MrThomas I'm bipolar, boo-f**kin'-hoo!
  • Noesis bipolar II...inherited from mom's side of the family
  • WilliamDelacroix probably inherited susceptibility from mom's side, though no one in my family has ever been diagnosed. no doubt exacerbated by alcoholism, from which i have recovered.
  • MQDuck Type 2 bipolar. Possibly from both sides of my family.
  • Damërung Controlled some years ago.
  • HyperrealLogic 14:23, 4 October 2017 (UTC): I was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder--depressive type--in 2007. It does not appear to run in my family, but I'm sure there were some genetic events that played a significant role in my susceptibility to it. I, too, mostly have it under control.[]

A thought from one of usEdit

"I have often asked myself whether, given the choice, I would chose to have manic-depressive illness. ... Strangely enough, I think I would chose to have it. It's complicated. Depression is awful beyond words or sounds or images ... So why would I want anything to do with this illness? Because I honestly believe that as a result of it I have felt more things, more deeply; had more experiences, more intensely; ... worn death 'as close as dungarees', appreciated it - and life - more; seen the finest and most terrible in people ... But, normal or manic, I have run faster, thought faster, and loved faster than most I know. And I think much of this is related to my illness - the intensity it gives to things"
