Patient discussion about characteristic

Q. Do ADHD patients tend to have similar characteristics? I've noticed lots of kids and teenagers with ADHD are kind, sensetive and have a great sense of humor. Have you heard of any researches in that issue?? Have you noticed that as well?

A. so what do you say guys? anybody else here is familiar with these characteristics in kids with ADHD?

Q. what defining characteristics can i point out to her to show her that she is bipolar and must see a doctor? I have a very close friend who is with me for the past 25 yrs. We share everything about us frankly whether it is good or bad. So far we didn’t hide each other about the happenings around us. But for the past one month I suspect my friend is bipolar but she refuses to visit a doctor. What defining characteristics can I point out to her to show her that she is bipolar and must see a doctor? I don’t want to hurt her at any cost. I never ever do it. So please help.

A. You have reminded me about my friend who was with me before but lost her somewhere now. I can really feel how much you find hard to reveal her about her illness. It's very hard to get someone who is Bipolar to actually admit it and then even harder still to get them to commit to treatment because they enjoy their highs so much. You have to get her when she is in a depressive state as that is when they are most willing and receptive to treatment.
