What are the Meanings of Bipolar?

Bipolar is a manic-depressive mental disorder, which causes a lot of unhappiness to the carriers of this disease, despite being a mental illness with a simple treatment. People suffering from bipolar disorder have several stages, and very different symptoms.

Being bipolar is an anomaly that can be the result of several factors, such as genetic, biological, or brain abnormalities. It may be due to genetic factors, since when one of the parents has bipolar disorder, there is a 50% chance that a child is also a carrier of this disease, and also because of psychosocial factors, such as the loss of an important person, the use of drugs, financial difficulties, among others, that may contribute to the onset of this disease.

The person suffering from bipolar disorder will not need treatment in a hospital. For treatment, just be with the family, with psychiatric support, and follow medical recommendations.

The symptoms of bipolar disorder

Bipolar disorder is characterized by two phases: the manic phase and the depressive phase. The two phases are distinguished by presenting different symptoms. Although the symptoms of the two phases may coexist in what is known as a mixed period.

During the manic phase , the person who is bipolar in some periods may feel full of energy, optimism, self-confidence, is very easy to think and speak, is a charlatan, exposes his own ideas, speaks very fast, is considered A superhero, is cheerful, witty, can suffer from insomnia, is irritable and is often distracted. Similarly, being too impulsive and irritable, he often participates in physical confrontations. In this phase, which is characterized by physical and mental hyperactivity, sexual desire increases and there is also a probability that the individual loses money and has debts.

The bipolar person during the depressive phase has some very serious symptoms, he feels a lot of pain that he cannot explain, discouragement, impatience, appetite changes, extreme fatigue, a lot of fatigue, loses interest in others, there is also loss of sexual desire, due to the fall of libido. On the other hand, at this stage of the bipolar person, he sleeps a lot, has low self-esteem, inferiority complex and concentration problems, becomes physically or verbally aggressive, and most seriously, can even attempt suicide.
