I always get confused, I think I am bipolar one

Just wondered if you could make it clear so others know what the difference is too :)

To be classified as bipolar I you need at least one full blown manic episode.

bipolar one needs a full manic episode.bipolar 2 would be a hypomanic episode which is less severe than a manic episode
