Where wild minds come to rest
In correlation to the symptoms of MD,
Bipolar disorder has symptoms such as:
psychmotor agitation - pacing back and forth
non-linear disorganized thought patterns
heightened creativity, among other things.
Because of this I wonder if MD may have a comorbidity with Bipolar Disorder.
There are two types of bipolar disorder, Type 1 with full-blown mania and possible psychosis, and Type 2 with hypomania (mild mania) and lesser risk of psychosis. Type 2 often gets misdiagnosed as depression due to hypomania often going unnoticed by patient and others. Sometimes a diagnosis of Bipolar disorder is made when the patient fails to respond to antidepressants, or gets sent into a manic/hypomanic episode.
I wonder if some people with MD may unknowingly also have Bipolar 2 due to it's usually subtle nature (as in it gets mistaken for depression).
