Bipolar disorder is a condition in which people go back and forth between periods of a very good or irritable mood and depression. The mood swings between mania and depression can be very quick. Each phase however, can last for weeks or months at a time. Between these mood episodes, a person with bipolar disorder may also experience normal moods.
It’s not fully understood what causes bipolar disorder however, studies have shown that it has a tendency to run in the family. Bipolar is a serious disorder and may cause dangerous behavior, even suicidal tendencies.
