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, soul-crushing lows.
The disorder causes immense feelings of sadness at times that can make you feel hopeless, or cause you to lose interest in most day-to-day activities. But when your mood takes on a manic phase, you can feel the total opposite – euphoric and highly energetic. Although bipolar disorder is an all-encompassing and very disruptive long-term condition, treatment can work if a plan is followed carefully. In most cases, bipolar disorder can be treated effectively with a combination of medications and psychotherapy.
