Bipolar disorder



Some days we feel positive. During others we don’t. As a human being this is completely normal but, when those mood swings become increasingly extreme and more common, it can be a sign of being bipolar.

The disorder used to be called manic depression and is essentially a mental health condition that affects your moods, which can swing from one extreme to another. This is why the word bipolar is relevant as it refers to poles on opposite sides.

The condition can cause severe problems in one’s personal and professional life but with the right team of professional and experts it can be treated successfully and sufferers and those around them can go on to lead a life that is calmer and more content.

Bipolar disorder is often misunderstood and sometimes diagnosed extremely late.

According to the World Health Organization, more than 40 million people are affected by it. The disorder causes immense mood changes that are often extreme and unpredictable. Those with bipolar can go from heightened energy, clarity and happiness to sudden sadness and fatigue. In severe cases of bipolar, sufferers can also have suicidal thoughts and may attempt to take their own life. That is why it is essential to seek professional help for bipolar as soon as possible.

Bipolar disorder symptoms can last from a week or two, where the person may feel extremely happy, positive, creative, and energised. Conversely, their moods can dip to the opposite extreme with a flood of negative emotions. It can often lead to depression. The actual cause of bipolar is not known exactly but it is linked to chemical imbalances in the brain and genetic factors. The fluctuating phases of the disorder from extreme highs to dark lows are often so ranging that they interfere with everyday life. The right treatment can correct and control the effects of these episodes and help lay the path to a life more balanced.
