The news is now saying the man that did the Boston bombing hoax this year is bi-polar. He says he is an art student and it was all a performance. Why do people always have to blame idiotic behavior on bi-polar people? A teacher sleeps with a student, oh they are bi-polar. A mother kills her children, oh she is bi-polar. A man walks into a store and opens fire killing people, yep, he's bi-polar. What the hell, I'm bi-polar and I have no thoughts on doing any of this stuff, but because all these news reports I feel like a criminal or a leper every time I have to tell someone I'm bi-polar. Can't they find something different to say? Maybe that they were suffering from a disease that effected impulse control in a more severe way than a regular bi-polar person normally would?
