...a psychiatrist, duly licensed, double-board certified, and aware of my ethical obligation to NOT diagnose someone I have never met.

BUT--her speech is not pressured, her ideas are logical and flow correctly, her reasoning builds on itself, and she expresses self-awareness of her own anger and emotional state. If I were the attending and this was presented to me as a video example of mania, I would struggle to find any evidence to support that conclusion.

Women, especially women of color, who are angry are frequently called unstable. They are medicated at a significantly higher rate and with more aggressive and controlling medications. Ms. Olivo is allowed to be angry on Instagram or anywhere else she wants and should not have to fear psychiatric reprisals.
