Bipolar disorder, or manic-depressive disorder, is a mood disorder in which people experience alternating episodes of mania and major depression. Mania is characterized by elation, irritability, excitability, racing thought and speech, and hyperactivity. Major depression is characterized by sadness, withdrawal, despair, and suicidal thoughts. In the early 1900s, the German psychiatrist Emil Kraeplin was the first to formally describe bipolar disorder. He used the term "manic depressive" to explain how mania and depression both affect the patient. His work in the early 20th century led to advancements in classifying, treating, and predicting the course of mental illness, which ushered in the formal discipline of psychiatry. Bipolar disorder has two distinct classifications:
  • Bipolar I : history of major depression and at least one episode of mania
  • Bipolar II : history of major depression and much less severe episodes of mania (hypomania)
Bipolar I An onset before the age of 30 usually results in frequent, severe episodes. Psychosis is more common in this group and symptoms tend to linger between episodes. An onset after the age of 40 has a better prognosis. Generally, short episodes, late onset, the absence of other medical or psychiatric conditions, and early treatment have a better prognosis.

What is Bipolar Disorder? Bipolar Disorder, also known as Manic-Depressive Illness, is a disorder of mood in which there are severe mood swings: a depressed mood alternates in cycles with an elated or irritable state called mania. What are the Symptoms of Bipolar Disorder? The symptoms of mania may include increased social, work or sexual activity; increased talking; rapid or racing thoughts; grandiosity; a decreased need for sleep; distractibility; and involvement in self-destructive activities like buying sprees, reckless driving or bad business deals. Symptoms of depression may include poor appetite with weight loss; trouble sleeping; agitation; general slowing down; loss of interest in usual activities; lack of energy or fatigue; feelings worthless, self-reproach, excessive guilt; being unable to think or concentrate; or recurrent thoughts of death or suicide. In Bipolar Disorder, mania and depression alternate with normal moods in a pattern that varies from person to person but is usually consistent over time for each individual.

Bipolar Disorder
by William T. Goldman, MD
Introduction: Why Bipolar Disorder is a problem.
Bipolar Disorder in children and adolescents has long been an overlooked health problem, and the subject of much professional debate. While it is fairly well known to the general public that "manic-depressive illness" is fairly common, affecting up to 1.0 to 1.5 % of the adult population at some point in life, it is not commonly recognized that bipolar illness in childhood and adolescence is also a major health problem: adolescents run a similar rate of risk as do adults, and a significant number more also report notable and disturbing subclinical levels of mood problems similar in quality to bipolar disorder. Related Articles Attention Deficit Disorder School Problems Depression Internet Links About Pediatrics ADHD Mental Health Information for Children Although considered rare, the exact rate of bipolar disorder in children remains unknown, although epidemiological studies are underway to determine this. Bipolar disorder in children and adolescents is arguably more significant of an issue than it is in adults. For example, if it is assumed that 1% of children and adolescents at any given time suffer from bipolar disorder, this naturally occurs during critical phases in child development, and not only can show itself with behaviors and feelings not typically viewed as part of a "depression" or "mania" but can interfere with the normal developmental processes of childhood. Add to this the diagnostic difficulties in distinguishing between disorders that have similar characteristics in children (such as delinquency, anxiety disorders, psychosis, ADHD, and learning disorders) and there is a significant number of children and adolescents both correctly diagnosed and misdiagnosed or undiagnosed.

Tempering the Mania of Manic Depression
by Stephen L. Bernhardt
Bipolar Disorder - episodes of mania.
Any discussion of the process of bipolar disorder and mania cannot be entirely divorced from a discussion of the depressive response. Within any episode of mania lurks the possibility, the likelihood of impending depression. There are certain techniques and exercises which I have identified while dealing with my own periods of bipolar disorder mania which help temper the mania and thereby lessen the impact and severity of the subsequent depressive response. It is essential that you have read my article on Emotional Thought Stopping and are familiar with the concept and my suggestions for its use, before you attempt this exercise. I assume that if you are reading this in order to help temper your periods of bipolar disorder mania that this is not your first episode. Look back at your previous situation just prior to those episodes and see if you can identify if there was some event which triggered the episode and begin to identify how you felt at the start of the episode. It is important to be able to recognize these periods as early as possible so that you can begin this tempering exercise before it reaches a crisis stage. This is especially true if you begin your episodes with a euphoric feeling.

they just do Sometimes their caress is warm and fragrant, sometimes it is cold and stinging Sometimes their strength is such that it can pick you up and carry you giggling and laughing, as you fly free as a bird! Sometimes their strength is such that it pounds you into the ground relentlessly, leaving you scrambling for shelter as you scream into the wind for it to stop. Sometimes it blows with a pleasing symmetry, gracefully scything through the wheat fields, rippling them like a gentle wave. Sometimes it blows like a circular maelstrom, a vast hurricane, splintering people and families into a million shards of despair. Sometimes it goes away for a long time, long enough so that we think it is safe to emerge from ourshelters to rebuild the scattered debris of our lives.

CAUTION Using antidepressant medication to treat depression in a person who has bipolar disorder may induce manic symptoms if it is taken without a mood stabilizer. In addition, using stimulant medications to treat ADHD or ADHD-like symptoms in a child with bipolar disorder may worsen manic symptoms. While it can be hard to determine which young patients will become manic, there is a greater likelihood among children and adolescents who have a family history of bipolar disorder. If manic symptoms develop or markedly worsen during antidepressant or stimulant use, a physician should be consulted immediately, and diagnosis and treatment for bipolar disorder should be considered.

What is BiPolar Disorder?
(Manic Depression)
What is Manic Depression?
Manic depression involves wide mood alterations, with periods of both depression and mania. A person experiencing depression or mania may have intense mood swings and consequent changes in thinking and behaviour. The term that is professionally used for this illness is Bipolar Affective Disorder. Bipolar means sharing two poles (high and low) and Affective Disorder means a disorder having to do with mood.
What Causes Manic Depression and Who Are The People At Risk?
The cause is not known. Any person can develop manic depression, however, studies indicate that highly creative, sensitive people, people tending to be perfectionists and high achievers, have a higher incidence of bipolar affective disorder. Although biological factors seem to play a major role in producing the illness, a person's personality make up and or stresses in the environment may also play a part in bringing on an acute episode.
How Many People Are Affected and What Are The Symptoms?
It is estimated that 1% of the population will have a manic depressive illness. Environmental factors such as death, separation and divorce may trigger the disorder. The illness manifests itself with the individual experiencing episodes of mania or elation followed by low mood or depression. The number of manic and depressive episodes varies greatly from person to person and most individuals experience "normal" periods between their manic and depressive episodes.

About bipolar disorder / manic depression
Manic-depression is a chronic mental illness, a physical disease of the brain. There is no known cause, but there is a proven hereditary influence. Many bipolar people have parents or extended family who suffered from depression, hyperactivity, rages, suicide or any number of behaviors. It is not a condition that can be cured but it can be controlled by medication. If you think you may have bipolar disorder, go and see a doctor immediately. (See also "Bad Times and Blessed Times" , a testimony of one person with bipolar disorder.)
There are two aspects of the bipolar disorder. Manic "highs" and depression "lows." Often these are called mood swings. The manic state is the high part of the cycle. It is characterized by hyper or excentric behaviors:
  • euphoria; feelings of joy or wellbeing grandiose thinking; able to accomplish anything
