Urgh I had that with this girl I didn’t like, her actual diagnosis was BPD and major depression and she would sit and chat shit she was bipolar and schizophrenic, she soon shut up when I pointed out to her its called schizoaffective bipolar type and when I asked what meds she was on she said she was self medicating with fluoxetine which said it all. Also I asked her what meds she’d been on as a schizoaffective would need something like Haldol, olanzapine, risperidone, heavy duty anti psychotics and she couldn’t name any.
8 out of 10 bipolar cases on an anti depressant alone WILL go manic. If your friend is legit bipolar she either 1. needs to be inpatient or 2. needs a new psych or 3 which is the most important STOP TELLING PEOPLE SHES BIPOLAR. Fucks sake its not a cool thing to be, you know that yourself. I highly doubt shes bipolar, bipolar is an obvious disorder, even to strangers, I once talked this woman to death who was a stranger on a bus because I could literally not stop talking.
I’d ignore her or point out shes not bipolar if shes on anti depressants alone.
