I don't know what I think about the name change. I know the intent was to move to a neutral term that didn't carry the stigma associated with MD. But sometimes I wonder if it doesn't create another problem: People don't understand how serious the illness is, don't know what the heck bipolar is, and as a result treat it like it is just another thing people excuse behavior with. Personally I prefer manic-depressive illnes - the other term just masks the problem and confuses things. What do you all think?
