What is the worst mental illness?

Bipolar I Disorder (mot to be confused with Bipolar II). Highest suicide rate, mania, to include hallucinations and hearing voices, often violence. Bipolar I disorder also includes hypomania and severe depression. The term "Bipolar" at one time was known as Manic Depressive Illness. Currently, the name for the illness has come to include, erroneously, the Bipolar II. Bipolar II does not have the element of mania that Bipolar I does. Actually Bipolar II does have a manic element, but it is hypomanic, which is a lot less severe than the mania of Bipolar I. A lot of people, like me, start out as Bipolar II but become Bipolar I when they have their first full-blown manic attack (I prefer attack to episode because that's what it is--an attack on the mind).

Why are bipolar people paranoid?

Some are and some aren't. Paranoia and paranoid delusions tend to happen most frequently in bipolar people when they are very manic in conjunction with delusions of grandeur. While having delusions of grandeur a common belief is that you are infallible and can make no mistakes, in this state any hesitancy by others to believe your ideas immediately (they are so obviously correct to you) tends to be interpreted as willful opposition to you and your "perceived truth" which frequently manifests as paranoia against those people.
