Bipolar disorder is a complex mental health condition characterised by significant mood swings. Those suffering from bipolar disorder typically sway between two states: mania (or hypomania) and depressive episodes. During manic phases, patients might experience heightened energy levels, a reduced need for sleep, elevated motivation levels for completing goal-oriented tasks, and increased talkativeness. The depressive state typically leads to sadness, hopelessness, a loss of interest in pleasurable activities, and fatigue. In severe cases, it could also lead to thoughts of self-harm and even suicide.
Living with bipolar disorder can make it difficult to maintain normal and healthy relationships and meet personal and work responsibilities. This can severely affect their career outlook and quality of life.
