I wonder if the rampant prescription of SSRI drugs has created bipolar symptoms in people who would not have otherwise qualified for the diagnosis.
I'm not saying it was deliberate. The tinfoil hat is folded away in the bottom of my crazy drawer. But prozac came out in about 1988 quickly followed by many similar drugs. Now 20 years later bipolar disorder is the diagnosis du jour. Makes you wonder.
