Do You Have Bipolar Disorder?

By - - [ Health ]

Lets start by knowing what exactly bipolar disorder is. According to Oxford dictionary, bipolar disorder is a mental illness in which ones state of mind changes from extreme happiness to extreme depression.

 I’ve come to an understanding that most people cannot differentiate between bipolar disorder and mood swings. These are two completely different things but yet similar. Bipolar disorder is a mental illness that need psychiatric attention.

Mood swings is part of the signs of bipolar disorder. But mood swings are caused by temporary discomfort of the state of mind. Maybe due to the environment, a trauma, remembering an occurrence of the past, anxiety or discomfort of the mind. 

So check again; do you have bipolar disorder or you just have mood swings?

This is interesting. I used to think that the two are the same. I do encounter mood swing. And in those moments I feel I should be alone in a world where no one exists but me. And then I should just be in a very remote part of nature. Sometimes it is like I should just find a way of escaping from reality. And I want to leave all my friends and stay totally away from them.

Bipolar is a term for mood swing, it actually happens to everyone cause everyone can be happy and also be sad.

But when it is a disorder,it is when one can't control that feeling. 

That's my opinion about it.

So many people claim to be Bipolar without knowing the exact meaning. Seeing this post just made me happy knowing it would enlighten the public on what Bipolar really means. Bipolar is an Illness and not something somebody should be proud of. It can drstroy relationships if left untreated and can make day-to-day living difficult. Make sure you see a therapist when seeing signs of being Bipolar.
