    Bipolar disorder is generally recognized as something of a slippery customer when it comes to diagnosis. It certainly isn't something you can diagnose yourself and in some cases it can be a case of waiting to see if treatment for the condition makes the person feel better (thus confirming an initial diagnosis).
