Bipolar disorder is a chronic illness with recurring episodes of mania and depression that can last from one day to months. This mental illness causes unusual and dramatic shifts in mood, energy and the ability to think clearly. Cycles of high (manic) and low (depressive) moods may follow an irregular pattern that differs from the typical ups and downs experienced by most people. The symptoms of bipolar disorder can have a negative impact on a person’s life. Damaged relationships or a decline in job or school performance are potential effects, but positive outcomes are possible.
Two main features characterize people who live with bipolar disorder: intensity and oscillation (ups and downs). People living with bipolar disorder often experience two intense emotional states. These two states are known as mania and depression. A manic state can be identified by feelings of extreme irritability and/or euphoria, along with several other symptoms during the same week such as agitation, surges of energy, reduced need for sleep, talkativeness, pleasure-seeking and increased risk taking behavior. On the other side, when an individual experiences symptoms of depression they feel extremely sad, hopeless and loss of energy. Not everyone’s symptoms are the same and the severity of mania and depression can vary.
More than 10 million Americans have bipolar disorder. Because of its irregular patterns, bipolar disorder is often hard to diagnose. Although the illness can occur at any point in life, more than one-half of all cases begin between ages 15-25. Bipolar disorder affects men and women equally.

Personality disorders are of many types. They range from self -consciousness, and inferiority, to disorientation and mal adjustment in thought.A sick mind can be as real and distressing as a sick body, and at sometimes even more than the body, as the mind replays the past events of life, it becomes so real and alive to the individual who has done nothing to alter the disorder, or confusion, that keeps them so occupied in thought. each moment is spent in flames of anger, or to have revenge of that particular situtation or condition.Understanding the mind cannot be released of its passions, until it is voiced of this errort thought, man continues to live in a consciousness of total dissater trying to figure out the outcome of their error thinking.The personality then becomes adjusted to accomodate this attitude of mind,as each error thought enters the sub-conscious mind, and hides itself, many find themselves in need of psychiatric help.They can often help themselves if they come face to face with their thoughts about their condition, and uderstand that Love for themselves, is the key to forgive and let go.There are many reasons why many people go through these situations in life and some never get to experience the joy in living and loving LOVE is the medicine for this DIS-EASE.

Feeling down or depressed from time to time happens to most people. Usually such feelings pass, and a person can improve his or her mood naturally. However, some people cannot break out of a depressed state over an extended period of time. In those cases, a person is considered to have clinical depression. However, there is much research that shows that depression is neurological, not psychological. Certain brain patterns are frequently linked to depression.
