Campaigners believe a Briton who was executed in China today may have been duped into smuggling heroin while suffering from the disorder.They had urged the Chinese authorities to assess the mental health of Akmal Shaikh, 53, from Kentish Town, north London.Bipolar disorder, also known as manic depression, affects about 1 per cent of the population and is characterised by swings in mood from elation (mania) to depression.During the manic phase there can be feelings of inflated self-esteem, verging on grandiosity, racing thoughts, restlessness and insomnia.The 19th-century author Edgar Allen Poe, who is thought to have suffered from manic depression, once wrote: "Men have called me mad, but the question is not yet settled whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence..." In recent years psychoanalysts, psychiatrists and psychologists have argued that genius and madness are linked to underlying degenerative neurological disorders.The problem has been that both genius and severe mental illness are rare, and high intelligence or achievement is subjectively defined.Hope dated several men after she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder II in 2004, but none of the relationships lasted long enough to make her mental health an issue.When Hope, 45, developed feelings for a local restaurateur in 2009, she knew she would have to talk to him about her diagnosis before things got serious.
You may also feel very creative and view the manic phase of bipolar as a positive experience.
Sometimes I do a small thing which can be annoying on a bad day. Really big arguments can be had on those days, but at the end of it when they normally realise it wasn’t as big of a deal as it was made out to be and they forgive and forget.
When they’re really mad at you for really nothing at all depending on your own mood it can be funny to watch as an outsider but this can just aggravate them more.
People who are bipolar may lose interest in life and find it hard to concentrate or to make even simple decisions during periods of depression.
But during manic periods they may feel so full of optimism and energy that it can affect their ability to make good decisions and judgments, according to the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
