I made the mistake of reading through a few different posts on Quora. Specifically, ones that talked about Bipolar as it fascinates me to what other people thing. Well anyway the post I was reading asked is Bipolar Disorder dangerous. Now there is an overwhelming number of posts who agree that people with Bipolar can be dangerous, this rattles my nerves a bit, I am sure not everyone with Bipolar is dangerous.

Extraordinarily dangerous

Direct Quote From Quora

I acknowledge that we do take risks and indulge in reckless behaviours when we are manic/hypo-manic. But dangerous?

Bipolar Disorder can be dangerous both to the individual suffering from it and those around him/her.

I guess I can understand where some people are coming from. We have a higher risk of suicide and take risks when manic, but that could be anybody. Your everyday Joe Bloggs, could be more dangerous. What I am trying to say is that it shouldn’t be the illness that makes you dangerous.

What are your thoughts on this subject? are we more dangerous?
