Favorite Bipolar Artist/Writer/etc?

Hello all!

I wouldn't use the term idol, but who is inspired by any past or present people who have/have had bipolar disorder?
Plenty of brilliant minds to choose from: Beethoven, Lord Byron, Winston Churchill (not surprising, lol), Charles Dickens, Carrie Fisher, Francis Fitzgerald, William Faulner, Graham Greene, etc etc.
Personally, I love the work of Emerson, Graham Green, HEMINGWAY, Daniel Johnston, Edvard Munch, Newton, Van Gough, Vonnegut, and Virginia Woolf.
Too bad a lot of them ended their lives so soon.

I'm interested in what you guys have to say!

Charles Dickens is one of my favs! It is amazing all the brilliant minds that were clouded with bipolar disorder. The brain is an amazing thing!
