Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder results from disturbances in the areas of the brain that regulate a person’s mood and is characterized by intervals of exhilaration (referred to as mania) alternating with intervals of depression. The fluctuation between mania and depression can be sudden. During manic periods, a person suffering from bipolar disorder may act on sudden urges, have lots of energy and a larger-than-life attitude. The depressed period causes the person to feel extremely anxious, not worthy, and have suicidal thoughts.
