My counselor told me last week that one of the signs of bipolar psychosis is hyper-religiosity. I go to church every Sunday and I go sometimes during the week. I'm a Catholic and I went to confession and a daily mass or two. My priest told me to keep praying and that the psychosis was pretty interesting, but not valid in his mind (that would make practically everyone he knows psychotic). I have been reading this book about St. Francis, who probably suffered from bipolar disorder. It's a pretty interesting book it's called The Perfect Joy of St. Francis and it talks about his life and how he was brought up rich, was a knight and was taken captive by an enemy army and how he built is life up to be closer to the joy of God through fasting and poverty. I'm thinking of joining the Franciscans, but not until I have finished college. What do you think? Does religiousness come as an affect of bipolar or what?
