Do you think that the argument you are making will actually bring real reform to labor and corporate business, higher ed, the housing market or any of the systems that have been increasingly harder for the millennial generation to gain traction in? If so, what are some indicators?

Are there ever times that it is really difficult for you to distinguish between bipolar I and GAD+depression? A relative of mine had initially been diagnosed with Bipolar I but very late for their age. Later, another psychiatrist diagnosed it as GAD without depressive mood. I have witnessed one manic state in this relative (I am a psychologist by training, but not a clinician). It was during my wedding, so I had a lot of time to observe the person. I could see it leading up to the actual wedding date, because we stayed at the hotel together for pre-wedding activities. I just think that there have been major incidences of impulsivity and depressive state that seem more exclusive to bipolar throughout her life that may not be addressed if therapists continue to work with her under the current diagnosis.
