Is bipolar worse

Is bipolar worse than Schizophrenia? My sister in law keeps telling me it is and says the depression is even worse. I happen to have depression along with Schizophrenia, and I am confused how can she believe that it’s a contest. She doesn’t know how Schizophrenia affects people.

It’s definitely not a contest. They are all tough conditions to deal with.

My bipolar is worse than my sz, but that’s because I don’t have to deal with psychosis very often and I have to deal with bipolar all the time. But you’re right it’s not a contest.

I’ve always wondered what bipolar is like. Racing thoughts is a really really horrible thing. I think it can happen in both szc and bipolar…
In their manic phase
I know I’ve experienced it

What @TheCanuk said.

And which is worse is totally subjective. There’s no right answer.

It sounds like your sister-in-law is feeling insecure. I hope you don’t let it get to you.
