I would like to know if Bi-Polar affects those suffering from it in the same way. Do they all tend to act in a certain manner and if so what are the typical symptoms of Bi Polar.

How is one diagnosed, is it as the result of a one on one with a Shrink or by means of a blood test or both ? Thank you.

NOTHING affects different people in the same way. But there are some typical patterns wich enable us to make reasonably reliable diagnoses, Many websites, including this one, if you search it, will describe typical symptoms of bipolar disorder. There is absolutely NO blood test to make psychiatric diagnoses, and a proper face-to=face discussion with a shrink making an individualised asessment, is needed,

There are unfortunately no blood test that can diagnose bipolar. A doctor can diagnose you based on current and historical symptoms, and family history. If you google bipolar symptoms you will find multiple lists of typical symptoms. There are huge variations in the way bipolar affects people.
