All I can say is 'Thank You Mr. Fry'.
22 April 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I was diagnosed with bi-polar in September 2000, and the greatest problem I have always had is to explain the condition to others. This documentary shows the good and the bad of bi-polar, (and trust me at times it can be very good.), from the everyday person on the street to the instantly recognizable celebrity who have it. Although I believe the focus is slightly more on the manic issues of the condition, this is understandable as this is where most of the anti-social aspects of the condition can appear, and depression is much more widely understood / accepted than mania. It took a huge leap of courage and faith for Stephen Fry to 'come out' and announce to the world that he has this condition, to talk about his suicide attempts, and to make it so public. I have shown this documentary to family, friends, workmates, anyone who will sit still, and it is the best resource I have available to try to explain the bi-polar. Once again, thank you very much Mr. Fry for helping spread the message, and giving me the courage to be more open about my bi-polar. I am forever in your debt.
