So every summer, ever since my mom was a little girl, my entire family has vacationed on the Outer Banks for the best week out of the whole year. Long story short, I wasn’t able to go last year so I haven’t seen my family in over 2 years, which is flipping ridiculous.
HOWEVER I leave Sunday for the best week ever, and I couldn’t be more excited. I just had to tell the world.
Now, my family is weird. And not in the oh-my-gosh-my-family’s- so-weird-and-embarassing way that everyone says but the hey-let’s-have-a-family-marshmallow-shooting-out-of-your-nose-contest. And each member of the family (all 20 of us in the house) are assigned a color, and if someone burps or “toots”, we all have to shout out our colors. So basically it’s a week advertising how gassy you are.
And I’ve been saving up for two years ;)

Well of course every case is different. The human brain is extremely complex— no one person is the same as the next.
But I’m not a doctor. I’m reluctant to say too much beyond my own experience because I don’t have all the knowledge or expertise to give you answers with 100% certainty. But the characteristics of bipolar are the extremes of both the low moods and the highs, not just if you have some of the traits of one pole or the other. So while one pole may be more prevalent, my experience is that both poles are just as problematic and potentially harmful in their own way.
