It may be difficult to find bipolar supporter articles, although you can find some if you look hard enough.  Bipolar articles are plentiful on the Internet—all you have to do is go up to the Google search bar on your computer screen and type in the words bipolar disorder, and click on GO.  Then sit back and wait, and soon you will have more bipolar articles to choose from than you can imagine!


Although the choice of bipolar articles will be vast, you may soon realize several problems in the articles on bipolar disorder that you choose to explore further:


  • Many bipolar articles will have the same information.  This may not necessarily be a problem, as the information may be presented in different ways, and some articles may have more bipolar information than others.


  • Some bipolar articles will have outdated information.  For instance, some articles will quote research material and statistics on bipolar disorder from as far back as 1999 (I know, I have read it), which may have been accurate back then, but not necessarily current.  This makes the time you spent in choosing and reading this article a complete waste of time, because you have no idea whether these statistics are still accurate today.


  • Some bipolar articles will have more material on other disorders than on bipolar itself.  For instance, they will only refer to bipolar disorder as it is part of the larger category of depressive disorders.  In this case, you will get very little information, and may feel frustrated in your efforts to find the information on bipolar disorder that you are looking for to help yourself and your own disorder.


  • Some bipolar articles will have misleading information.  These articles will be more like advertisements for medications or for treatment centers or hospitals.  In the cases of medications, the pharmaceutical manufacturers may sell medications for bipolar disorder, but it may only be a very small part of what they sell.  In the cases of treatment centers and hospitals, they may serve all types of mental illnesses, bipolar disorder being just a small part, and the bipolar article that you happen upon is just a self-serving advertisement in the form of a bipolar article.


  • Some bipolar articles may be incomplete.  They may just have enough information to support the point they're trying to make, but leave out other information.  Look for supporting information such as references and sources to go along with the material being presented to give it validity.
