Where I live, there is a saying that goes like this. "They are getting the crazy check". What is the crazy check? It is the SSI money they are collecting claiming they are bipolar.

Well worded. I didn't mean to offend, if I did. I'm often a bit biased, as I said earlier, due to many patients I see working the system. But I didn't mean to group everyone into the "faking it" category, as I have also seen a lot of legitimate cases
I empathize and say nick, "I did not take offense." I am just concerned about generalities. I generalize at times too. Mental health on an outpatient basis is still in its infancy. There were alternatives in the past. TG my uncles put a stop to that
Also, I'd say my opinion is more warped, as a person who has seen far too many drug seeking/system abusing patients in my lifetime. So I'd take my opinion with a grain of salt.
Just asking, when medicated or not? Don't forget the grey or is it gray. There is a criteria known as hypomania, which may fit your description, yet I kinda' doubt mania does. Look into BPII for some more insight. Don't forget about depersonalization
When medicated. Also, I don't mean to put all people that act out into a category, I just mean a lot of them. I don't work with psych patients on a regular basis, I work with them in an ER until we can place them at a facility.
