Stephen Fry on Manic Depression

A few quotes from this interview with Stephen Fry on living with bipolar disorder: 

“The mood is your personal weather.”

“That manic stage is to be treasured, sometimes.” Explaining medical non-compliance?

“It is an illness.”

“If you say ‘I am bipolar’, there is a little flicker in their eyes and it’s tricky.”
