RE: Bipolar/depression, illness or true self
I've speculated that some forms of mental illness are a form of evolutionary advantage - most exuberantly the potential link between schizophrenia and prophecy - others in the field more classically trained have speculated on the advantage of psychopathy in the business world.

The inner SJW was stirred by the fact that there is still great stigma associated with being mentally ill that prevents many from getting the help they could use. The progress that has been made in the field is a fragile candle in the dark that could use sheltering from blowhards.

RE: Bipolar/depression, illness or true self
I think affective disorders are hypersensitive and can tap into more of an empathetic response to music and other art that other's might not be able to. The romantic rebellion moto was "feeling is all" given to us by the sensitive prophet of romanticism Goethe, and that feeling is suppose to lift the veil of mystery to see past the objective world of science. It's partly Freudian or Jungian. It can't be scientifically proven though so its always theoretical.

RE: Bipolar/depression, illness or true self
I had a mental health eval. this morning.
It's a fairly thorough evaluation, it took over two hours of questioning to complete.

My psychiatrist recommended it. He thinks I might qualify to have a caseworker where I'll have more interaction with someone other than him just giving me pills for bi-polar.

Was that called a neuro-psych test?
