Britney Spears and Bipolar Disorder

The buzz, for those that care, is that Britney Spears has either bipolar disorder or Post Partum Depression.

PPD my ass - that girl's got a MAJOR bipolar hypomania cooking.

Well, I have to agree with the PPD..only because I was told by my shrink that Post Partum Depression CAN be a Red Flag for Bipolar...

Not everyone who has PPD is bipolar, but A LOT of women who are Bipolar have PPD.

They truly do go hand in hand.

I never thought of that. I just know my heart really goes out to her & I hope she finds her way.

Thanks all for the comments.

Ariadnek and DW - I don't know much about PPD other than watching my wife go through it after giving birth to 5 kids. But I know Britney's symptoms do sound like bipolar disorder. Thanks for the input!

Jane - it's hard sometimes to keep a compassionate heart for those who seem to have it all. I admire you for that.
