After a basic reading of your research, being a rapid-cycling depressive bipolar at age 60, I absolutely agree with your findings about self reflection and awareness of the specific conditions associated with a particular diagnosis and experience. However, the physical aspects of aging do complicate the energy expenditure balance between controlling symptoms and monitoring behavior, while still maintaining "normal" physical activities. At least that is my anecdotal experience.
