Bipolar Disorder

This is the forum to talk about Bipolar Disorder, how it has affected your life and what you have done or what you have tried to keep your life in control.

Bipolar Disorder (also known as manic depression) causes serious shifts in mood, energy, thinking, and behavior–from the highs of mania on one extreme, to the lows of depression on the other. More than just a fleeting good or bad mood, the cycles of bipolar disorder last for days, weeks, or months. And unlike ordinary mood swings, the mood changes of bipolar disorder are so intense that they interfere with your ability to function.
