Partner with a Therapist Specializing in Bipolar Disorder
Living with bipolar disorder often feels like being held captive by your moods and emotions. One moment, you may feel downcast, lethargic, and isolated, only to find yourself in a state of ecstasy, impulsivity, and agitation the next. This roller coaster of emotions can significantly disrupt your life. Our therapist can guide you toward regulating your moods and making healthier decisions.
Are Your Moods At the Mercy of Bipolar Disorder?
Bipolar disorder, a mood disorder, is characterized by episodes of hypomania or mania, often alternating with major depressive episodes. Bipolar one can result in manic episodes so intense that hospitalization may be required. Bipolar two disorder entails at least two weeks of a major depressive episode and at least one less-intense hypomanic episode; cyclothymia involves frequent mood swings between depression and hypomania, albeit typically with shorter duration and less severity.
Manic episodes can make you feel incredibly euphoric or unusually irritable, brimming with boundless energy, needing little sleep, and accomplishing more than usual. Increased risk-taking and impulsivity can lead to reckless spending, dangerous actions, or hypersexuality. Your bipolar experience is uniquely your own; you might relish the productivity or euphoria accompanying mania, or it might induce anxiety and agitation. Nonetheless, bipolar disorder can inflict numerous adverse effects on your life:
Emotional dysregulation and "crashing" after a manic episode
Self-harm behaviors and suicidal thoughts or attempts
Risky behaviors that can result in injury or death
Impulsive decision-making and reckless spending
Increased dependency on alcohol and drugs
Struggles in maintaining relationships
Frequent fluctuations in sleep, appetite, and energy levels
A wavering self-image or identity crisis
