I got a long way into my life before I realized that I think differently than most people I know.
Now, I don’t mean I think more or less logically, or on a deeper or shallower level, or more or less intently or anything like that. I guess I mean, I think more ‘bipolar’ than other people. Here is what I mean:
Bipolar people have different tendencies in their thoughts than other people.
Some of them are clearly defined: rapid thoughts where you can barely understand the thought before another thought is ramming its way in, extreme thoughts where any bad thing happening in your life leads to suicidal thoughts, and counter-positioned thoughts where one day you want to throw a party with every person you know and the next day you don’t want to ever see another person ever again.
