I don't know if I totally believe this or not. I do believe that it is a brain disease, but I read today that lithium may actually protect the brain. I wish I had a link, but I believe it was from a bipolar site up a few threads from here.

I think it can be managed to the point where a person is close to how they originally felt. But, it may be easy to confuse how I was 20 years ago with how I am now due to the fact that 20 years ago I could have made love 10 times a night, but now that would kill me. As we get older we "lose" some of our youth and how much is the disease and how much is nature I am not sure. I am going through a painful period right now that I haven't seen for ten years. why? I am not sure, but eventually I will get it managed. Peace.
