Bipolar Disorder and Depression

Many people struggle with their mental health. Even though mental health is just as important as physical health, it is often neglected, and mental disorders are not always taken seriously. However, if a mental illness goes undiagnosed and untreated, it can cause significant harm to a person’s life. A mental health disorder can take over an individual’s life if they do not learn how to manage it effectively. This can include their physical health, relationships, and ability to fulfill responsibilities at home and work. Bipolar disorder and depression are two of the most common mental disorders. While they can present challenges in your life, it is possible to learn to manage them and have a happy and fulfilling life.

Understanding Bipolar Disorder and Depression

Bipolar disorder is a mental health disorder that causes extreme mood swings where individuals experience periods of emotional highs and lows. This means that someone with bipolar disorder will have a manic period where they may be energetic, euphoric, or unusually irritable. Their mood will then shift to depression and feelings of hopelessness.

Signs of bipolar disorder include:

  • Mood swings
  • Engaging in risky behavior
  • Losing interest in hobbies
  • Disorganized behavior
  • Lack of concentration
  • Changes in sleep, whether it is lack of sleep or excessive sleep
  • Impulsivity
  • Irritability
  • Fatigue or restlessness

Depression is characterized as persistent sadness or lack of interest in life. While it is normal for people to feel sad or lonely occasionally, individuals struggling with depression feel intense sadness or hopelessness for long periods.

Some of the signs of depression are:

  • Insomnia or sleeping too much
  • Irritability or crankiness
  • Losing interest in things that once brought pleasure
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Overeating or appetite loss
  • Restlessness
  • Feelings of worthlessness and helplessness
  • Persistent sadness or feelings of emptiness

If you are struggling with poor mental health and suspect you may have depression or bipolar disorder, ask your doctor or a mental health professional. An untreated mental disorder can lead to further consequences for your health and well-being, so do not wait to seek treatment.
