Mental illness - Not mentally deficient
Stephen Fry, the British actor has been suffering from a psychological illness called "Bipolar Disorder". Do remember that mental or psychological illness does not mean that the person is "mentally deficient". It only means that the patient suffers from phases of acute depression or mania at some stages of his/her life. Such people have to fight this disease all their lives and at the same time they have to cope with life's challenges like completing their education, career, marriage etc. Hence it is not an easy life for them. We should all try to understand such individuals. You should watch the Oscar award winning movie "A beautiful mind" also which stars Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly.
