These mood swings can affect sleep, energy levels, activity interest, judgment, behavior, and clarity of thought. Mood swings may occur infrequently, or they may occur multiple times a year. Most people will experience some of the hypomanic episodes or depressive symptoms between actual episodes, although some may not experience any symptoms at all.
Bipolar Disorder can be a devastating mental illness if left untreated. When you have no control over your moods, life becomes unmanageable. Those in a manic phase often burn through bank accounts with extravagant shopping sprees and purchases of drugs and alcohol. This behavior may alienate friends and relatives. On the downward end of the cycle, the depressive phase may cause isolation from friends and loved ones due to inability to engage in normal social relationships
With comprehensive bipolar disorder treatment, individuals can regain control of their lives and reduce the severity or likelihood of future episodes.
