"More than 3 million cases of bipolar disorder are diagnosed in the US a year. The exact cause of bipolar disorder isn’t known, but a combination of genetics, environment, and altered brain structure and chemistry may play a role."
"Manic episodes may include symptoms such as high energy, reduced need for sleep, and loss of touch with reality."
"Depressive episodes may include symptoms such as low energy, low motivation, and loss of interest in daily activities."
"Mood episodes last days to months at a time and may also be associated with suicidal thoughts."
"Bipolar disorder can be a lifelong struggle. Those with bipolar disorder cannot control their emotions or moods." - Bipolar Disorder: Mayo Clinic
