Bipolar disorder can also be known as Manic-Depressive illness. This disorder takes the form of very high manic episodes to very low depressive states. The sufferer typically fluctuates between the two, and that can affect their ability to carry on in their lives. There are four main types of Bipolar Disorder- Bipolar I, Bipolar II, Cyclothymic, and “Other”. These four types are imperative to distinguish between, so the proper treatment can be administered. Signs and symptoms vary based on the individual, however people in manic episodes typically engage in risk-taking behavior, have overall agitation, trouble sleeping, and may feel jumpy. People having a depressive episode might be sad, have very little energy, eat too little or too much, think about death, and feel worried.
