Bipolar disorder can often go misdiagnosed for several years. Bipolar disorder – the larger condition that includes bipolar depression—is a lifelong, or chronic, illness. It’s a condition that affects the brain in a way that can cause extreme mood swings that vary in length. Individuals suffering from bipolar disorder can go from mania (the “highs”)—feeling euphoric or revved up and irritable—to depression (the “lows”)—feeling down or hopeless. These highs and lows are called “episodes.” Not sure if you suffer from bipolar disorder? Schedule an appointment with one of our providers for evaluation and begin treatment today.
