Understanding Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder is a mental illness marked by extreme mood swings which range from mania to depression. Like the name suggests, ‘bipolar’ means ‘two extremes’ – so a person with this mental condition may be extremely happy and ecstatic on some days and be very low, sad and depressed on others.


During an emotional high or ‘mania’, a person with bipolar disorder will be excited, elated, impulsive, euphoric and full of energy. Because he/she is feeling over confident, during this time he/she may land up taking some rash or risky decisions and may engage in promiscuous activities, over indulge in drugs or alcohol and may land up squandering a lot of money on useless things.

On the lop side, during the depressive phase the person with bipolar disorder feels extremely sad and hopeless. Suicidal thoughts, extreme anxiety, crying spells and total despair may be present. During this phase the person’s daily activities get severely affected and he/she may lose interest in things that they once enjoyed.

Mood shifts may occur only a few times a year or as often as several times a week. Studies suggest that people suffering from this condition often seek medical help at a very late stage when the person starts experiencing significant trouble in their everyday life or when there is a palpable drop in their performance at school or work.  Troubled interpersonal relationships too could force the person to seek professional help. Mild or moderate cases of this disorder often remain undiagnosed and untreated.  Family members, spouses and close acquaintances of people suffering from Bipolar disorder are often the first ones to notice the symptoms.  People suffering from bipolar disorder also complain of troubled interpersonal relationships.



The exact cause behind bipolar disorders remains unknown but there are a number of theories that suggest that bipolar disorder is a result of many factors acting together.

Genetic Predisposition cannot be ruled out.  The risk of developing Bipolar Disorder is higher in the first-degree relatives of people diagnosed with this condition.

Environmental stressors also play a pivotal role in the development of this disorder.  People with this disorder have a strong history of disturbed interpersonal relationships or disturbed childhood or have been victims of child abuse.

Hormonal and neurotransmitter imbalances are seen in all the people suffering from bipolar disorders. In some people with this mental condition physical changes in their brain is also seen.

Treatment and management:

Managing bipolar disorder is not difficult. People are able to lead a normal life with therapy.   There may be cases where the maniacal episodes are quite severe, during such circumstances relatives of the patient are supposed to be cautious and should seek immediate help from a professional therapist or a psychiatrist.
