53. If you ask good psychiatrists

 

they would say pretty much the same. I believe you genuinely care for your friend and wish him well. But from what you say, he clearly feels that the standard system is not for him - and many "bi-polars" genuinely prefer their strong wave pattern to dull straight line - experience junkie is a good characterization. What everybody likes and needs is acceptance and love - for what you are as you are, even when you don't share exactly the same experience world and can't comprehend everything about someone other. I've given more than enough of trouble and worry to my close ones, but also heard them say this simple and beautiful truth to me: Thank you for being.
