What is Bipolar disorder?

Report as

Bipolar disorder or bipolar affective disorder (historically known as manic-depressive disorder) is a psychiatric diagnosis for a mood disorder in which people experience disruptive mood swings. These encompass a frenzied state known as mania (or hypomania) usually alternated with symptoms of depression. Bipolar disorder is defined by the presence of one or more episodes of abnormally elevated energy levels, cognition, and mood with or without one or more depressive episodes.

Ummm. For the first time I read the community guidelines. I used my new skills:

Respect the Law & Others’ Intellectual Property
Do not ask about or give instructions on how to commit illegal acts or harm to others. And don’t copy/paste answers of others or from other websites.

Guess I'll have to do little edits or footnote. DARN IT! I just learned how. >:(

The disorder my mother thinks i have but havent medically been diagnosed. I did a health report on it so did my bf lol funny. It is when u have a disturbance in the brain patterns. You can change moods quickly and there are three stages. Im considered stage one a couple episodes a day. Stage to your super depressed and three ur agitated and irritable ect hope i helped but trust me it sucks stage two and three you can have thoughts of suicide.
