Approaching someone with Bipolar Disorder

I asked for topic suggestions on my Facebook page, and this one that came up. Someone asked, “How do you approach a person with bipolar disorder if you are non-bipolar”. I found this quite interesting. It makes me wonder, why would you approach a person with bipolar disorder any differently than a ‘non-bipolar’ person? Is this how ‘non-bipolar’ people feel? Are they scared of us? I do understand the question if it were, “how do you approach a person with bipolar disorder when they are either depressed or manic”. Maybe that is what they meant.
