Being a bi-polar gamer is very odd. My guildmates and Hon friends seem to be shocked at the idea that a gamer can be bi-pilor. I have actually had guild members quit in WoW because it made them uncomfortable that I'm open about my bi-polarity. /shrug
I don't think bi-polar gamers proclaiming they are bi-polar is wrong. I see threads about skinnies all day on the forums. Skinny guys proudly proclaim that some anorexic (good God, the Forsaken archer threads) or "you won't believe this skinny last night at a party." This is socially acceptable. Is not me talking about how bi-polar some guy is?
