A Bipolar Overview
Many illnesses abound the world today. Before, people live
longer and with only a handful of illnesses.
But today's times are very much different because of the many
changes that take place. New technology has brought new
things into this world.
Many inventions, new foods, and all the new stuff that people
now enjoy seem to contribute to the many illnesses suffered by
millions of people; not to mention the different day to day
experiences that people encounter as they go through life.
The typical life of an individual begins as he wakes up in the morning. He then goes through his life
everyday doing his routine activities. He goes to work, meet deadlines, attend meetings, and deals with
different kinds of people. At home, he has to do chores, and spend time with the family.
He also does other activities like going to the supermarket, church, and other important places. And not
only that, he encounters different situations everyday that either he welcomes or resents. Many factors
contribute to making an individual ill.
Individuals suffering from bipolar disorder have to deal with such condition all the days of their life.
Talking about such disorder can be very embarrassing for some people but this should not be so since
the illness can be managed especially if you know how to do it.
Before, the condition was popularly called manic depression. But now, it is called bipolar because of
the two extreme poles that make up the condition. A good example is the globe having a north and a
south pole. When an individual experiences different symptoms associated with one pole, then he's
having an episode.
The episodes are divided into four types: depression, mania, hypomania, and mixed mood. When a
person feels depressed, he or she feels sad and don’t want to do the usual things. Those that exhibit
mania usually start having a high feeling, and become angry and irritable.
They are the ones who tend to do risky things. The milder form is known as hypomania which can lead
to either depression or mania; this episode also starts with feeling good and the person may think that
more things are done. Others who have episodes with feelings of depression and mania mixed together
is called mixed mood.
Symptoms are divided into depression and mania. Depression symptoms include feelings of sadness,
hopelessness, worthlessness, and guilt. These individuals sleep too much or too little and experience
changes in appetite or weight. They always feel tired, restless, and can't make a sound decision.
The worst case is when the person thinks about suicide and death. Mania symptoms include an increase
in the level of energy, racing thoughts, sleeps less, easily distracted, more self-confident, more
talkative, focused but accomplishes little, and often do extreme or unusual activities.
The four main types of bipolar are the following:
1. Bipolar I – this type involves manic and mixed episodes, as well as major episodes of depression.
The bipolar patient may experience more than one episode for several days, weeks, or even months.
Seasonal changes also seem to affect the symptoms exhibited by the person.
2. Bipolar II – this involves major episodes of depression and a hypomania episode. Normal
functioning can also take place in between the said episodes.
3. Cyclothymic Disorder – this is a fluctuating disturbance in mood with hypomania and depression
episodes. This is considered the milder form since episodes do not occur regularly and happens for
shorter and less severe times.
4. Not Specified – this is a treatable disorder and the symptoms exhibited by the individual does not fall
into any of the three types mentioned; the disorder varies from one person to another.
There is no known cause of bipolar disorder. Some say that it has something to do with genetics. But
that alone is not enough to cause such disorder. Perhaps other factors contribute to the disorder and that
is why further studies are underway.
People from different races, ethnic groups, children, teenagers, or young/older adults can suffer from
bipolar disorder. The brain cells of each individual don't work normally if there is an imbalance in the
neurotransmitters. These are special chemicals that seem to be involved in the disorder.
If you think you're experiencing bipolar symptoms, then you’d better check with your doctor as soon as
The Episodes and Symptoms Of Bipolar
Emotions have its ups and downs. It is normal for everyone to feel. But for a person affected by a
bipolar disorder, these highs and lows can become very extreme and hinder daily activities. There are
times that the situation also became dangerous.
A person cannot work because of feeling so depressed. Then the next day, this person feels great, filled
with creativity and endless energy. However, some people can misinterpret such actions as being
reckless and uncontrollable.
A bipolar disorder can be unpredictable and confusing. This medical condition is also chronic. Never
feel embarrassed if you are affected with this type of disorder. Learning all about it is helpful to
manage such medical illness successfully.
A bipolar disorder affects the ability of a person to feel various moods in a normal range. Manic
depression is another term for bipolar disorder. Bipolar is used to describe two extremes or poles.
People affected by this serious medical condition have mood alterations ranging from an extremely low
(depression) to an extremely
The best picture to describe such condition is the globe. The globe is divided into the North and South
Pole. The mania would be the North Pole and the depression would be the South Pole. If a person
experiences the symptoms of either pole for a definite duration of time, then he or she is experiencing
an episode. These episodes must be thoroughly discussed with a healthcare provider.
There are four kinds of episodes associated with bipolar disorder according to APA (American
1. Depression. Sometimes, a person can feel extremely sad for a prolong period of time. It is very
impossible for him or her to eat or leave his or her bed. The things which he or she enjoys to do seem
2. Mania. This is the other pole of a bipolar disorder. It may begin with a high or good feeling. But
after sometimes a person can feel very angry and irritable. Doing risky things is not impossible.
3. Hypomania. Compared to mania, this type of episode is only mild. A person might feel very good
thinking that more things are getting done. But after a while, his or her mood changes to a full-blown
depression or mania.
4. Mixed mood or mixed episode. The feelings of depression and mania can affect a person many
times during the day.
These episodes can put a person at risk for committing suicide. Experiencing mania or depression for
more than four episodes within a year is known as rapid-cycling. There are different symptoms for both
poles of a bipolar disorder.
The mania symptoms include increased levels of energy, reduce needs for sleep, easily distracted, mind
jumps, racing thoughts, more talkative, more confident, focus on doing things but accomplishes only
little, and more risky even if it means things are going to be bad.
The depression symptoms include feeling blue or sad, feeling down, losing interests on the things
which a person is enjoying including sex, feeling guilty, feeling hopeless, feeling worthless, sleep too
much or too little, changes in appetite or weight, feeling tired, feeling too little energy, feeling restless,
concentration problems, decision-making problems, and thoughts of suicide or death.
Moreover, it is also vital to learn how mood swings are triggered. Emotions and events that happened
in a life of a person can be the triggering factors. Sad, unpleasant, or happy events can make a person
experiences either depressive or manic episodes.
Triggers or stressors include irregular schedule of sleep, misuse of drugs or alcohol, stopping
medication, starting medications for depression or other herbal products, and having problems related
to thyroid and other health condition.
Nevertheless, different people may experience different triggers. Some people also consider seasonal
changes, illness, holidays, work problems, friends or family's disagreements, marriage, starting a recent
job, starting college, love one's death as triggers.
Figuring out what triggers a person can help. Keeping a mood chart to record varying emotions can
determine mood swing patterns. This can be a tough task but provides many treatment possibilities.
A bipolar disorder is not more of a problem today. There are lots of treatments available. It is very
important to talk to a healthcare provider to create a plan that will work best in stabilizing mood
Bipolar Affective Disorder Triggers and Medications
Manic depression or now called bipolar affective disorder, have millions
of people suffering from this mood disorder. Mood swings are but
natural, but this mood disorder is way beyond the normal experiences of
people. The disorder is characterized by extreme low depression and
highs of an elated mood or mania. The frequency usually varies from one
individual to another.
The cause of bipolar affective disorder is not yet established although
experts claim that it has something to do with genetics and hormonal
levels. There are also cases when other acquired illnesses of an individual
cause bipolar disorder.
Everyday, a person experiences different emotions and events, and oftentimes these things trigger the
mood swings. Coping up with happy events and unpleasant ones can put you in greater threat for
depressive and manic episodes.
The triggers cause your mood swings.
These are also called stressors, and it includes the following:
not sleeping regularly
drugs or alcohol misuse
starting depression medicines or herbal products
having medical conditions like thyroid problems
disagreements between family/friends
death of family member, friend, or loved one
starting college or a new line of work
If you're diagnosed with bipolar affective disorder, you should be able to identify the triggers. You can
do this by having your very own mood chart. You have to record all your emotions and the
corresponding events that took place. After a while, you may now notice certain patterns.
Making your own mood chart is a tough job. It would be best to have a helpful talk with your family
and trusted friends. You must also try to consult your therapist or healthcare provider. They may be able
to help you more since they are not part of your life. You can better see things through their
After figuring out all the possible mood swing triggers, you have to learn to evade them. This involves
action and would require you to avoid some of your bad habits. Your friends and family members
should also be made aware of the triggers so that they can assist you in your struggle.
Bipolar affective disorder is not easily detected. In fact, many people may go for many years without
being diagnosed. Unlike other illnesses and disorders, bipolar does not entail any laboratory test. The
medical provider will simply use the MDQ.
This is a questionnaire utilized for bipolar disorder; and the person conducting such questionnaire fills
up the checklist based on the symptoms exhibited by the person. However, the checklist can only be
used and given the right diagnosis by a medical provider.
There are several medications that can be used for treating bipolar affective disorder, including the
1. Mood Stabilizers – this medicine can relieve or delay depression and mania episodes.
2. Antidepressants – people having a depressive episode can use a mood stabilizer together with an
antidepressant. If this medicine is used alone, the chance of switching into a mania episode is
3. Antipsychotic – persons having mania episodes can use this medication; severe mania or
depressive episodes can lead to psychosis, and this can be treated with antipsychotic. You can use the
medication alone or your provider can also use it together with other medications especially if the
patient feels nervous or is unable to sleep.
4. Electroconvulsive therapy or ECT – this is not actually a medication but rather a treatment to
help people suffering from severe depression or mania episodes. Those individuals who don’t respond
to medications can also undergo this therapy.
The ECT is a therapy and it aims to control acute depressive and manic symptoms. It can effectively
reduce mood instability and cycling and at the same time minimizing bipolar symptoms and treatment
side effects. Through a management plan, the bipolar patient can return to his normal life.
Although the medications are not guaranteed to remove such condition, your mood swings can be
stabilized. You can effectively control symptoms and easily cope with certain problems.
Not only is the individual affected but also their families. But with proper medications and treatment,
bipolar affective disorder can be stabilized and controlled. Consult your medical provider now.
Manifestations by a Bipolar Child in Proper Diagnosis
A bipolar disorder or manic depression is a severe illness but can be treated. It's a brain disorder
characterized by extreme swings of energy, mood, behavior, and thinking. The symptoms are present in
early childhood or even during infancy.
It can also suddenly emerge in adulthood or adolescence. But today, diagnosis of bipolar disorder in
childhood is often made. It is because doctors can identify and treat young children with bipolar
disorder easier now.
Early prevention and treatment provide greater chances of getting well, achieve stability, and enjoy life
as these children grow up. Proper treatments reduce any adverse effects not only in the life of affected
children but in their family as well.
The families of children and adolescents with bipolar disorder can become desperate for support and
information. Learning about bipolar disorder is the first step for finding the right treatment. The
occurrence of this condition in children is not yet known, since it lacks epidemiological studies.
But bipolar disorder can affect almost 1% to 2% of adults all over the world. Diagnosing symptoms in
children can prevent its long-term effects.
Children that are diagnosed with bipolar disorder in the U.S. have ADHD (attentiondeficit with
hyperactivity disorder). The depression in teens and children is typically relapsing and chronic. Several
studies reveal that 3.4 million significant proportions of children and young adults with depression is
actually experiencing the early symptoms of a bipolar disorder however the manic phase is never yet
Marked changes of a bipolar disorder in terms of energy and moods are apparent in children. Persistent
condition of extreme agitation or elation accompanied by high levels of energy is called mania while
persistent condition of extreme irritability or sadness accompanied by low levels of energy is called
This illness afflicting children may appear to be very different compared to adults. Generally, children
have continuous, ongoing mood disturbances with combined symptoms of depression and mania. This
severe and rapid cycling among moods can produce chronic irritability. Sometimes, state of wellness is
manifested between episodes.
Parents revealed that their children that have bipolar disorder display symptoms such as irritable or
expansive mood, lack of enthusiasm in play, extreme sadness, rapid mood swings that can last for
several hours and even in days, rages that is lengthy, explosive, and destructive, separation anxiety,
defies authority, hyperactivity, distractibility, agitation, night terrors, bed wetting, sleeping too little or
too much, frequent and strong cravings for sweets and carbohydrates, excessively involve with multiple
activities and projects, impaired judgment, racing thoughts, impulsivity, pressure on talking too much,
display behaviors of a dare-devil, precocious or inappropriate sexual behavior, hallucinations and
delusions, and grandiose belief or too much self confidence defying laws or logic.
Bipolar disorder symptoms may emerge earlier. The manifestations can even be diagnosed in infants.
More often, mothers have reported that their children who are diagnosed later with a bipolar disorder
have difficulty in sleeping and settle erratically. These children extraordinarily seemed clingy, and often
had seizure-like, uncontrollable rages or tantrums that are sometimes not appropriate for a certain
event. These rages are often triggered with the "no" word.
There are other factors that may triggers symptoms in teens. A traumatic event or loss can trigger the
first episodes of mania or depression. Later episodes sometimes independently occur when stressed out.
Puberty is another risk factor triggering the illness especially during menstrual cycle in girls.
Once the disorder begins, the recurrence of episodes is possible in most untreated cases. Some studies
show that a lag of ten years after the first episodes is possible. It is advisable that parents let their teens
undergo an evaluation if more than four symptoms persist.
In addition, teens with bipolar disorder that is left untreated can lead to drugs and alcohol abuse. Some
adolescents who display a normal behavior until puberty but experiences sudden onsets are more
vulnerable to alcohol or drug addiction. Any child or teen that abuses such substances must be properly
assessed. There are instances that the illness is highly genetic but environmental factors influences a lot
if it will really occur.
There are studies conducted to further explore the characteristics of children with bipolar disorder. The
results are promising thus the safety and effectiveness of treatments for adults are also appropriate for

their struggle in managing the symptoms. But those people who attend a support group may feel strong
and confident that they're not alone in facing their battles and easily recover upon treatment.
The people who are within a support group are likely to experience the highs and lows of a bipolar
disorder. No one will relate better with people who are suffering from a bipolar disorder except those
people who also experiences the same situation.
