They are 2 separate problems but having bipolar definitely contributes to more out of control picking (especially for me)... Once I was diagnosed bipolar and began taking mood stabilizers, my picking improved... Part of the reason I was picking was to stabilize my mood so that got better... I am still picking, but its easier to work on stopping now than before.
