That pic suggests a MIXED STATE Bi Polar to me, which I might well have.
I like those Winnie the Pooh characters tho did not read it til in my 30s to my own children. I discovered many children's classics as a mum.

Like @Appleblossom, I like the Winnie The Pooh characters, too! I remember when I was a child I got a talking Pooh Bear plush toy for a present - I loved it!
I have often heard the metaphor relating Eeyore to Depression, but it is interesting to relate Tigger and Eeyore to the ups and downs of Bipolar. Are there any other children's animated characters that you find relatable, @greenpea?

@Appleblossom Hi Appleblossom I have never heard of Mixed State Bi Polar ... One thing it doesnt mention is the aggression that sometime arises .... so Tasmanian Devil should be included and the real need for Speed is Speedy Gonzales.

Thanks for tagging me @Faith-and-Hope, I find I can go for while a while with Tigger making the decisions before Eeyore takes over (as he inevitably does). I had heard that Winnie the Pooh characters could be summed up in all sorts of mental health conditions (Rabbit is supposedly OCD and Christopher Robin schizophrenia, but who knows? I certainly don't). I'm at the Eeyore stage at the moment, so I am struggling to find analogies for the bipolar elevation.
