More Compassion, Please 


I picked up your latest edition today and have a comment or two of clarification.

The man described by you as "A Bipolar Man" is an incorrect use of language ("Digital Nomad," March 14). While a person may have "bipolar" spectrum disorder, that is not who he is as a person. 

You would not identify a diabetic with, "Hey, there is the 'diabetic man.'"

I, too, suffer from bipolar and unless you have had the condition, you have no way of knowing the deep pain of depression or mania.

It is a real put-down to call a person by his disease. Perhaps, in future issues, you may show more compassion and compose the article to show this point.
