Once known as manic-depressive disorder, bipolar disorder is a mood disorder that sends the afflicted through a rollercoaster of emotions from intense, manic highs to abrupt, depressive lows.
The disorder causes immense feelings of sadness at times that can make a person feel hopeless, or cause them to lose interest in most day-to-day activities. But when the mood takes on a manic phase, the person can feel the opposite – euphoric and highly energetic. Although bipolar disorder is an all-encompassing and deeply disruptive long-term condition, treatment can work if a plan is followed with dedication. In most cases, bipolar disorder can be treated effectively with a combination of medications and psychotherapy.
