Dallas Counseling for Bipolar Disorder
Bipolar disorder (formerly called manic depression) is characterized by mood swings from depression to mania. When depressed, you may feel sad or hopeless and lose interest or pleasure in most activities. When manic, you may feel euphoric and full of energy. Mood shifts may occur only a few times a
year, or as often as several times a day. There are periods of normal mood and energy in between episodes. In some cases, bipolar disorder causes symptoms of depression and mania at the same time. Although bipolar disorder is a disruptive, long-term condition, it can be controlled with psychotherapy and medications.
The exact symptoms of bipolar disorder vary from person to person. For some people, depression causes the most problems; for other people, manic symptoms are the main concern. Symptoms of depression and symptoms of mania or hypomania (a milder form of mania) may also occur together.
