WHAT IS BIPOLAR DISORDER?

Bipolar disorder or manic depression is a mental health condition characterized by extreme mood swings and can include mania, hypomania, and depression. These mood swings generally have an impact on energy, sleep, behavior, daily activities, and the ability to think clearly. Bipolar disorder is a life long condition, but the mood swings can be managed by following a strict treatment plan and therapies.

SYMPTOMS OF BIPOLAR DISORDER

In bipolar disorder, the severity of the symptoms can differ from individual to individual and can also get more or less severe. Bipolar disorder symptoms include:

  • Extreme mood swings

  • Restlessness

  • Anxiety

  • Lack of concentration

  • Poor speech

  • Impulsive behavior

  • Drug and alcohol abuse

  • Loss of energy

  • Difficulty making decisions

  • Irritability

  • Change in appetite

  • Suicidal thoughts

TYPES OF BIPOLAR DISORDER

The four major categories of bipolar disorder include:

  • In Bipolar I disorder, people experience at least one manic episode. In some cases, it also acts as a  trigger for psychosis.

  • Bipolar II disorder is characterized by at least one hypo-manic and major depressive episode but no manic episode.

  • The cyclothymic disorder develops when someone experiences hypo-mania and depressive symptoms for at least a period of two years or one year in teens and children.

  • The excessive consumption of certain drugs and alcohol can induce other types of bipolar disorder due to some medical conditions.
