Creativity is not something that is possible without hard work, no matter how genius-level you are, you will not get anything without a long effort. You only brag about your intelligence and genius. For this reason, it seems insulting to me to say that artists who have this disease have become artists because of this disease. There may be a connection between this disease and creativity to a certain extent, but it is clear that this alone will not lead to anything. Otherwise, all bipolar patients would be an artist, a genius, etc.
