Bipolar Disorder!!! <3 <3 <3 :) :( :{0

Also known as Manic-Depression Disorder, Bipolar Affective Disorder, Bipolar, Manic Depression, and Bipolar Depression.

Bipolar is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, and your ability to do daily tasks.

The symptoms of bipolar are fatigue, suicidal thoughts, aggression, sadness, agitation, anxiety, irritability, apathy, euphoria, and loss of interest in activities.

The causes of bipolar are not entirely known but scientist think the causes are genetics or malfunctions in your neurotransmitter.

Bipolar can be treated by medicines, councilors, or bipolar specialist, depending on how bad your case is.

It cannot be treated or cured it is a life long disease, but as I said earlier you can take medicines, have councilors to tell your feelings to,  or meet with a bipolar specialist to talk about your condition and treatment options.

To see if you have bipolar you need to talk to your doctor about mood swings or take a genetic test.

Drastic changes in mood are called episodes. Episodes can be either mania, depressive, or mixed. Mania episodes are extreme happiness, increased activity levels, extremely irritable, etc. Depressive episodes are sad, loss of interest in activities suicidal thought, etc. Mixed episodes are a mix of both feelings at once. Sometimes a person with severe depressive, mixed, or mania episodes can have delusions or hallucinations. There is different types of bipolar disorders that have different symptoms. The types of bipolar are Bipolar 1 (severe mania or depressive mood swings), Bipolar 2 (severe depressive and some milder version of mania called hypomania), and Cycloththymic (mixed episodes/ mania and depressive episodes mixed together.)
