I did not say anything that would identify this person, since there are a good number of psychologists who have Bipolar Disorder and they are very successful with medication compliance and psychotherapy. This person probably would enjoy reading this thread as she has her own Blog on the internet and frequently discusses her own struggles. She actually is a empirical case study of the efficacy of psychiatry and psychology treatment in the management of mental disorders. Many successful individuals have struggled with mental disorders and have endorsed mental health treatment openly in books or interviews. Having a major mental disorder does not rule out success in any field and most therapist have had numerous case studies of successful people dealing with having mental disorders.
