What’s it like to have Bipolar Disorder? Well, that’s a good question and often one our loved ones are desperately trying to answer. It’s hard for those who don’t have Bipolar to imagine the intensity and depth of what we go through. Hopefully this video helps to change this.
There are MANY different types and levels of intensity when it comes to Bipolar as well. One person’s experience may differ completely from another’s. There’s Bipolar Type 1, Bipolar Type 2, Cyclothymia, Rapid Cycling Bipolar Disorder, mixed states, dual diagnosis, and it can often go hand-in-hand with additional diagnoses like PTSD, Schizophrenia, Personality Disorders, and so on.
There are however, some trademark characteristics that are often looked at first when someone is diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. To simplify, it’s basically going from one extreme of elevated moods, to the other extreme of the lowest of depressive moods (and everything in between). In this video we are going to focus on putting an analogy to the most common aspects of Bipolar Disorder, which would be MANIA and DEPRESSION.
I hope you find this video helpful and informative. Please share it with other you care about so they may have a better understanding of our challenges. Sometimes simplifying things and using analogies that relate to most people’s lives can make this easier.
