In brief: Bipolar

Bpd is full-blown manic depression.
Bp2 is milder form and shows hypomanic instead of manic episodes. Also, sometimes rapid cycling is referred to as bp2 or cyclothymia.

In brief: Bpd vs bpd2

Bpd 2 has a tendency to manifest more severe depressive episodes where antidepressants work for a short time then wear off.
Anxiety with racing thoughts during the depressed phase seems to dominate in bod 2 such as racing thoughts causing insomnia. Activation syndrome described as possible suicidality precursors during antidepressant treatment is predominant in bpd2 takeshima et al 2013.
