you exclaimed-

"bi-polars will become overly-religious as a way to make sense of themselves?? They can also sometimes feel so good that they believe they are "heavenly spirits", have "grandios ideas" or as "intellectual geniuses". "

Do you know how many years Ive had to deal with my spirituality? Even my mother (who doesnt wish to believe shes bipolar)- believes herself some sort of "modern prophet".
She, for years, would tell me how
"special" I am spiritually to God and other beings. I, bing Bi-polar, beleived it.

But even then... before my mother even said anything..
as a child..
my spirituality was always very physical.. and intense.

I remember I was 8-- and was meditating.. listening to new age music and gregorian chants.
I felt God through music.. very physically, and still do.

But put yourself in my place. Youve had such a POWERFUL connection with the earth, energy, and God for so many years-- its become your own faith and a part of who you are.
Then imagine trying to explain your "feelings of spirituality" to a doctor..
and then they look at you and say.

"Oh--- that feeling of spirituality you think you have--- is just a disease"

Just think about that.

I really do feel I have a connection with God... and the earth-- like no other..
Whether or not it may seem crazy--
