Bipolar Disorder Therapy – Counselors and Therapy in Bristol
Does this seem familiar? One day you’re energetic, engaged and ready to take on the world. Before long, though, you’re down in the dumps with nothing to look forward to … and no end in sight.
What is Bipolar Disorder?
People with bipolar disorder face dramatic mood changes, transitioning unpredictably from mania — restlessness, energy, talkativeness, and euphoria — to the low of bipolar depression, with its feelings of worthlessness, listlessness and sadness.
How often these mood changes happen is unique to the individual, but it’s common for bipolar depression to last longer than mania, and thus to take longer to recover from.
