Discrimination against people who suffer from bipolar disorder is pretty much akin to racial discrimination.

That's a race card.

if you have a genetic difference they are ready to jump on you.

There is that. And yes one of my brothers are bipolar so I am familiar with the disorder. Self-control of your actions is what my brothers and I keep trying to drill into him.

Having watched the condition in others over long periods of time I'm not at all sure self-control is possible.

Medicine is better.

Particularly if they can get enough relief early on so that they don't try ALCOHOL.

BTW, the “discrimination is akin” because there’s not a whole lot the person with the genetic condition can do about it ~ so it’s just as mindless as discrimination based on skin tones.
