About Bipolar Disorder

Unlike the typical “good days” and “bad days” that we all have, a person with bipolar disorder experiences extreme mood swings and behavioral changes. Once commonly referred to as manic depression, bipolar disorder sufferers have weeklong periods of mania followed by depressive periods that typically last for two weeks.

Bipolar disorder alters the way the individual thinks, feels and acts, which can negatively impact the ability to live a normal life. Personal relationships, jobs and financial stability are affected, sometimes to the point at which the individual no longer functions in a “normal” manner.

Symptoms vary. In their manic state, individuals may experience intense euphoria, impulsive behavior, agitation, an inflated sense of self, talking too fast or too much, overspending and engagement in risky behaviors. During a depressive episode, people with this disorder tend to feel sad, hopeless and/or guilty, are apathetic, lack energy, sleep too much or too little, cannot concentrate, seem slow or restless, and may have suicidal thoughts.

People with bipolar disorder seem to be at higher risk for developing a co-occurring substance use disorder. They begin to abuse alcohol or drugs as a way to self-medicate and then become dependent on these substances to help them cope with their seesawing moods.
