Today and this week is going to be different. I’m getting back to the basics instead of writing about my days.
So the first one is what is bipolar disorder? There are 2 types of bipolar type 1 and type 2. Type 1 is where you have a major manic episode followed by a depression episode. Type 2 is when you have had a major depression episode followed by hypomanic episode but never actually manic. I’m type 1.
What is considered a manic episode and depression episode? A manic episode is when the person is abnormally upbeat, more energetic, euphoria, lack of sleep, talkative, and distracted by everything. A depressed episode is considered when you dont want to get out of bed, sleeping more, suicidal thoughts, and a feeling of loss. A hypomanic episode is very similar to a manic episode but is less severe.
