Bipolar disorder is a mental condition that produces abrupt changes in a person’s disposition, vitality, and capacity for thought. Mania and depression, characterized as high and low emotions in people with bipolar disorder, are distinct from the normal ups and downs that most people experience.
Hallucinations and delusions are common psychotic symptoms in severe mania or depression bipolar episodes. These psychotic symptoms frequently reflect an individual’s elevated emotions. Psychotic signs in bipolar disorder patients might lead to the incorrect diagnosis of schizophrenia.
People who are manic are frequently ignorant of the detrimental effects of their activities. Because some persons with bipolar disorder turn suicidal even during manic episodes, suicide is a constant risk. Manage the symptoms of the illness by learning from previous bouts what behaviors are “red flags” of manic behavior.
