Recognizing Bipolar Disorder
Bipolar disorder is often hard to recognize, especially in the early stages when it can be easily confused with other mood disorders or simply a feature of an individual’s personality. Early on, a person may have periods where they are energetic and ambitious, followed by periods where they are lethargic and unmotivated. Left untreated, these up-swings and down-swings become more extreme, eventually negatively impacting various aspects of the person’s life.
When you suspect you are bipolar—or that a loved one has the disorder—the next step is to speak with a psychiatrist. A qualified mental health professional will be able to determine whether the root of the problem is bipolar disorder or another issue. After a diagnosis is made, a customized treatment plan can begin—and so can a new chapter in life.
