> There really is not a "true" bipolar. The spectrum is wide and varied and each individual is different. Heck, in 20 years they may not be calling some of us bipolar anymore.

Hopefully, it will be within man's ability to diagnose bipolar disorder using biological markers.

"True" bipolar disorder is sometimes referred to as manic depression, and was first described by Emil Kraeplin a hundred years ago, noting the recurrent course of the illness. The classically described bipolar I is sometimes referred to as Cade's Disease.

How common is bipolar I? Probably 1.5 - 3.0 percent of the population. My guess is that the higher number begins to reflect the inclusion of bipolar II and bipolar NOS.
