I've got a really strong feeling that my best friend has BiPolar disorder, but I don't know how to suggest it to her. She's really stubborn and would hate anyone pointing out a weakness, but I'm scared that if she does have it and I don't say anything, she'll never figure it out and/or go and get help. However, if she doesn't have it and I've suggested she does, I don't want her to be upset and mad at me for thinking she's 'mental' or whatever. Should I bring it up? If so, how?

What does she do that makes you think she has it?

Be careful with this one. She may have Narcissistic personality disorder. In which case, if you suggest mental illness you will no longer have a friend! Just say you've noticed how she behaves and ask her if she is ok. Let her then think about it, I wouldn't mention a condition. Just suggest a visit to the doctor to make sure anything is ok!;)

To badly drawn girl.

Has her behaviour changed since you thought she might be ill?
Has she made other friends recently?
How old is she? - And how old are you?

You use this site, so if she visits you at home show it to her, She might somethow realise that she is like a lot of others, and decide to use it herself. Then someone can make suggestions to her about what she could do.
