Are you a mental health professional? I don’t believe speculating being bi polar is proper. First off, it seems to me the term is used as the new catch all for anything that goes wrong in society these days.
That being said, your description is flawed. There’s bi polar type and type II. There is a big difference and you can google it.
That being said, many different factors can cause a psychotic breakdown, both acute and chronic.
If you don't believe in speculating why are you even on a forum full of people speculating every aspect of this tragedy?
You are correct in that it's the USA's DSM that separates bipolar into types 1&2. However, there is a world outside of the USA and the ICD-10 by the World Health Organisation does not separate into types. Rather, it describes bipolar affective disorder and when diagnosing there is a recognition of the current episode (e.g. hypomania or mania). You can google it.
Yes there are factors leading to any mental health condition, not sure what your point is.
The point is you’re making a diagnosis and stigmatizing bi polar issues. Your comment on a mixed state being dangerous is flawed too. It’s a state of hypomania, not hypermania, along with depression.
You never answered if you’re a mental health professional and if you are, you can’t make a diagnosis of a mental illness from his conversation with ATC. It only lets us into his state of mind at that point.
There are many many different psychiatric diagnoses that have could have caused his breakdown, along with emotional issues such as stress.
Your comments are a disservice to those living with bi polar disease.
Wow. Nobody is making a diagnosis, as you already said, it's a speculation. I think saying my comments as stigmatizing is rather OTT and it certainly wasn't intended. You're clearly out to have an argument and I'm not going to satisfy this need of yours. I won't enter into any further discussion with you.
