Bipolar disorder used to be called ‘manic depression’. This condition has received a lot of attention in the media over recent years with a number of high profile people talking openly about their experiences of living with the condition. Typically, someone with bipolar disorder will have severe mood swings. These can last weeks or months and are more extreme than usual fluctuations in mood that we all experience. The low periods are often intense depression and the high or ‘manic’ episodes associated with extreme happiness and elation. Often there are also feelings of invincibility or ‘special’ abilities. Bipolar disorder can be extremely disruptive, but with the appropriate treatment and lifestyle advice, regaining control and stability is possible.
