I'm self-diagnosed ADD but to me ADD and bipolar are the negative mix between high intelligence/creativity and the society at large.
To me, the negative aspects of both ADD and bipolar are due to the negative self image we grow up with, the social pressure to be an obedient sheep, and our negative behaviors like addictions or outburts are simply a reaction to living a repressed life, not knowing self and not being understood in the world.
To me, we can't be part of the masses because we can see beyond what the masses see. That's not an ego trip but simply for whatever reason, we have a sharper vision and what society at large is interested in, we aren't.
To me, whenever I am free just to be myself, life is amazing.
