Haven't I seen this question before, and recently ? Or is my memory playing tricks on me ?
Some folks are nasty people, some even have a personality disorder, which may cause more problems to other people than to themselves. And the problems they have and those they cause are generally worsened by the arrival of most illnesses, including potentially Bipolar Disorder - but having any such disorder is no excuse for being unpleasant or cruel to anyone else.
Some meds may cause disinhibition or increased aggressiveness, so discuss these concerns with the psychiatrist who is treating her ( Bipolar Disorder should NEVER be treated by a GP alone ).
