i’m writing a character with bipolar, any specific do’s and don’ts?

  1. I think you probably need to ask more specific questions than this to get any useful answers. There's a thousand mile-long list of do's and don'ts for any marginalized identity/condition! The obvious go-to's for us are 'don't make us all killer psychos' and 'research the disorder before you write it' but there's a lot more to it than that if you're looking for any kind of accuracy and respectful representation.

  2. You’re going to laugh, but General Hospital actually gets it somewhat right. Maurice Benard is bipolar and I’m pretty sure helps write the parts surrounding BP.
