This seems rather weak to me:

C 00 Bipolar I Disorder
C 01 Bipolar II Disorder
C 02 Cyclothymic Disorder
C 03 Substance-Induced Bipolar Disorder
C 04 Bipolar Disorder Associated with a Known General Medical Condition
C 05 Other Specified Bipolar Disorder
C 06 Unspecified Bipolar Disorder

I like the following. I thought this is what they had in mind:


BIPOLAR I: Both mania and major depression
BIPOLAR II: Major depression and hypomania
BIPOLAR III: Cyclothymia. Mild depression and hypomania
BIPOLAR IV: Depression and usually no mania. Mania may be triggered by some antidepressants.
BIPOLAR V: Depression and no mania. Some blood relatives have had mania
BIPOLAR VI: Mania and no depression

The only things missing are NOS and substance abuse.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
