Do These Bipolar Disorder Symptoms Sound Familiar?


The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental
Disorders, aka, the DSM, is the book that just keeps on giving. The DSM-I published in 1952 listed 106 disorders
but by 1980 the third version contained 265 disorders and number four listed 297. 2013’s version of this “Psychiatrist’s
Bible” lists 300 maladies according to Reuters, all contained in 947 pages. You can find within those hallowed sheets
things such as “intermittent explosive disorder” and the male crisis of “delayed ejaculation.” Some critics argue that some of the disorders
are “farcical”, turning normal human behavior into a disease. Others say the pharmaceutical industry profiteers
from the growing number of mental problems. Still, there can be no doubt some of us were
endowed with or picked up some unusual mental conditions. Today we’ll try our best to explain just
one disorder, in this episode of the Infographics Show, What Actually is Bipolar Disorder? First of all, let’s address the criticisms
of the growing number of mental disorders. We should remember that in our darker past
we didn’t really know what was wrong with some people when they were perhaps acting
differently from what we might consider normal folks. Often we just locked them away in dank cells. We might have bled them to purge them of the
malady, or years later given them lobotomies. In parts of the world today you might still
find communities locking up their mentally ill fearing that they have been cursed, sometimes
sacrificing chickens as a propitiation to the spirits so they will show some mercy and
release the mentally ill person from the hex. We’ve come a long way, both in how we treat
patients and also how society empathizes with such people. There is a good argument, however, that drugs
might be over-prescribed; that perhaps not so many young teens need to be pilled-up on
legal amphetamines to get them through the day, or that Xanax or Valium are perhaps not
always the panacea for one’s anxieties. It’s said that almost 44 million Americans
suffer from a mental disorder, which is about one in five people. The National Alliance of Mental Illness tells
us that one in five people in the U.S. aged just 13 to 18 will suffer a severe mental
illness. On a global scale, we are told by some sources
that 1.1 billion people suffer from some kind of mental disorder. The World Health Organization said in 2018
that 300 million of those people are down with depression, 50 million have dementia,
23 million have some kind of psychoses, and 60 million have bipolar disorder. In that article it didn’t mention general
anxiety disorder, but it’s said it’s the most common disorder around the world. That might not mean massive, utterly debilitating
panic attacks, but just anxiety that makes life difficult at times. After all, we all get anxious from time to
time; it’s a natural chemical response that helps us to survive. It’s just some people have a bit too much
anxiety. There is no way to get an accurate number
of anxiety sufferers in the world as much of the world might not even have a concept
of it as a disorder and many other sufferers won’t have seen a doctor. Try telling a tribesman in the far reaches
of South East Asia that their son has anxiety and his borderline ADHD requires a dose of
Ritalin and see where you get. Nonetheless, there are numbers out there and
some say around the world one in thirteen people suffer from chronic anxiety. But let’s focus on America, where it seems
mental disorders grow like weeds on an abandoned parking lot. According to data, about one in five people
in the USA will suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder. We suppose that means quite a lot of our viewers,
so we look forward to your comments after the show. Coming in at the number one slot, as we said,
is anxiety. That accounts for 19.1 percent of adults and
it means anxiety that negatively affects day-to-day life, work, school, buying a pair of shoes
in a bright shopping mall, etc. Number two was the black dog, aka, depression,
and that affected 6.7 million Americans when the study was published in 2016. But number three, a disorder we might say
that has shot up the charts relatively recently was bipolar disorder. This affects about 4.4 percent of the American
public. Next was Post-traumatic stress disorder at
3.6 percent and way behind in terms of numbers was Schizophrenia. As for the disorder that affects mainly American
kids, the controversial Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, well, the CDC says
that the malady affects around 6.4 million Americans aged 4 to 17. That’s 6.1 percent of youngsters. We should add that over the last 8 years it’s
gone up 41 percent. Right now between the scientific community
there’s a schism wherein many people say it doesn’t even exist or shouldn’t be
seen as a disorder, and others say it does and definitely is, but we won’t get into
that today. So, bipolar disorder, America’s mental enemy
number three. What is it? Well, you see it used to be called something
different, and that was manic depression. Many of you who have experienced general depression,
unipolar disorder, know it’s kind of like having a black cloud following you around
and often you just don’t know why it’s there or how to get rid of it. Sometimes that’s accompanied with feelings
of doom, an ever-present black dog that keeps following you around and not allowing you
to have fun, relax, let loose, enjoy the world around you. It feels like every thought you have is contaminated,
like your very blood is soiled. This can last a long time, and sometimes you
might not even know just how depressed you’ve been until you’ve come out of it. Bipolar disorder is different, but often confused
with depression. Psychology Today describes bipolar disorder
as being a, “chronically recurring condition involving moods that swing between the highs
of mania and the lows of depression.” But manic is the word we should think about,
because bipolar may come with these bouts of feeling enervated, downcast, a feeling
of ennui that won’t let you get out of bed… and then there’s the other pole. That pole a few of you will certainly know
means a sudden feeling of great energy, excitement, sometimes a rush of euphoria, your mind races,
sometimes you can’t shut up, but you might also feel irritable and angry. We are also told some people might go as far
as to go on massive spending sprees or even engage in binges of copulation with strangers. As you can guess, moving between these vastly
different poles is the cause of great and sometimes debilitating instability. If you’ve had friends with bipolar disorder
you will know that one day they might be calling you, making plans to do amazing things or
at least just touch base more, and then you don’t hear from them for a while and they
don’t pick up the phone. It’s quite hard to diagnose of course, because
many people just go through changing moods; they are moody. Others are hyperactive sometimes, but it’s
not always a bad thing; they are just full of energy but like most things in this world
that energy has to dissipate. You are generally diagnosed with bipolar disorder
when your symptoms are extreme, so don’t you guys worry if you are prone to great excitement
and making plans and then sometimes go into reverse, close the blinds and hide from the
world. That’s not always abnormal. We checked out a few Psyche sites to see exactly
what the symptoms of bipolar disorder are. Of course some of the things we have just
talked about are included, but you must know that they have to be in the extreme. We are talking about tectonic mood shifts,
a polarization that has a negative effect on you and those around you. You might sleep too much, hardly sleep at
all, and that can make you irritable through the day… what we sometimes called “wired.” During the hyper-manic stage your thoughts
might race, kind of like a person high on cocaine. You have fancy ideas, sometimes you feel grandiose,
you’re at the top of your game (you’re not actually), sometimes reckless, but you
think you’re heading in the right place even if you’re being intrusive, annoying,
aggressive. You might also chat more, but that might even
come out as babble as you can be easily distracted and your friends might think your ideas are
absurd. This period will stop, and you will come crashing
down like a grand piano falling from the 13th floor; your great thoughts and ideas and excitement
now shattered and splintered in the street below. This is usually followed by darkness, depression,
lassitude, remoteness, an inability to communicate…the battery is dead. It might mean you can’t get out of bed,
you might put on weight, you have no energy, you feel hopeless, empty, can’t concentrate,
and sometimes think a lot about self-harm or ending it all. Some people do, however, have a kind of manic
episode that is not followed by this awful pall. They have the hypomania but don’t get the
deep depression. Others will have those bouts of hypomania
but they will be short-lived, while the depression part is very long. We know of one such case of a man whose hypomania
would last perhaps two days, but for months this unfortunate person disappeared under
a large blanket of insuperable depression. These people might not experience worrying
effects during the hyper stage, but the depression is not an easy thing to live with. Then there are people who are up and down
very often, hyper and depressed perhaps in the same day. They swing from one pole to another, but those
poles at least are not as extreme as those of the people who deal with them for longer
periods of time. Sure, it can still be debilitating, having
moods that shift like the wind, but it’s perhaps less severe than those who experience
extreme ups and downs. There is help for you if you think you have
suffered from bipolar disorder, and that doesn’t mean you have start taking meds all the time. There are mood stabilizers you can take, but
you can also just talk about your problems in therapy. Just go and see a doctor and you will get
help. Why bipolar disorder happens varies from person
to person. It might just be passed on, something in your
bloodline. At the moment experts tell us that there is
no specific gene related to bipolar disorder, but they say that certain factors including
the age of your parents might result in you having this disorder. Scientists have looked at what happens in
the brain of sufferers, including during manic and down periods, and indeed they saw irregularities
but it still remains something of a mystery. We are told in the future there might be certain
biomarkers for bipolar disorder, but as yet nothing is written in stone, or should we
say inscribed in the brain. But there might also be environmental factors,
meaning you picked it up because of things that were happening around you. The good news is, what can be created can
be deleted. Childhood trauma might have helped cause it,
and it might reappear during particular stressful times in your life. Don’t despair. You might have heard people talking about
the brain’s plasticity, which basically means you can overcome your disorders, weakness,
through making changes, having different habits, learning about your disorder and understanding
it better. We are all works in progress and we are all
able to edit the present and write the future. Have you suffered from this disorder, because
we’d love to know how you felt and how you dealt with it. Same goes for anyone diagnosed with bipolar
disorder now. Let’s hear your story and get some advice
for those that might need it. Tell us in the comments. Also, be sure to check out our other show

  • Thanks for sharing your stories! Please also share what helps you manage it so you can live better with less ups&downs…

  • I dunno I know I have depression and have been treated for it. It's weird though I don't think I'm bi-polar becuase the the high mood doesn't last a week or anything, more like a day or two or maybe three. I get really happy and I talk a lot more but weirdly I get really ambitious and bursts of inspiration but then wont do anything for a week. I'll get really energetic at night most of the time but sometimes if I'm at home I wont have anything to do with that energy and my mind kinda spirals. I don't know what it is because these high moods aren't for extended periods of time. Its more like from what I've read the bipolar reversed like prolonged periods of low moods and sporadic moments of highs, which maybe those highs are just me feeling normal loll and this is how everyone feels but i dunno know it doesnt feel normal

  • my mom refuses to take any medicine

  • I'm not sure whats wrong with me, but I keep feeling like my reality shifts into this dream like state where things just don't feel the same. I've also been having a hard time concentrating and remembering things its definitely not my norm.

  • OK, look.
    If someone is depressed, it doesn't mean they can't be happy at times, but they do feel like there is a black cloud following them.
    A depressed person CAN smile
    A depressed person CAN be happy at times.
    But the raincloud is there.

  • Thanks for sharing this video! I really appreciate the insight!

  • The fact that you wasted the first 4 and half minutes so you could make the video 10 minutes long for monetization. You piece of garbage. Don’t disrespect me like that.

  • My best advice to the other people suffering from bipolar disorder is to meditate. Secular meditation has saved my life.

  • This video has helped me realize that, if I'm happy for maybe a month, u will immediately wake up and be depressed for a while, then I'll go into a numb state until something makes me really sad.

  • I need help.
    My parents think my depression is all in my head, and I have developed a Bipolar disorder because it's so bad. I've tried to overdose twice. They think I want attention. I really want to get better, but they won't take me to a doctor or therapist (which I don't think a therapy will help) I also don't think I can wait 4 years to get help(when I'm an adult) what should I tell them?

  • If you just want the video to get to the point go to 4:30

  • I don't mean to be disrespectful in anyway but these comments are depressing

  • I was given Ritalin as a kid, and now I'm suffering the effects from it. It's poison, don't give it to your kids! Only now we realize what it's doing to people long term, both mentally and physically.

  • I have MDD, PTSD, OCD, and multiple anxiety’s. I’m only 15 and been to many therapists and my therapist told me I’m borderline bipolar and now I’m here anxious that I have to deal with this now.

  • My sister thinks I might be bipolar….

  • Who else is bipolar but not suicidal?

  • now I'm sure that my classmate have this.

  • Ugh, I don't know what to do anymore. I have chronic moodswings, I have chronic depression, I have suffered different traumas throughout my life since I was 5yo. My moods and behavior keep fluctuating depending on how my mindset is at that moment. I can go months (in a depressive episode, with new medication) without any big problems or extreme emotional outbursts. Although I can get really irritated. Making plans with friends, going out drinking a lot, not thinking about the consequences of my behavior.

    Problem is, after a few months the medication just stops working properly so I start to close myself off from the world. Days will be spent in bed, not wanting to face anyone. I'll get these anxiety attacks in public where my heart pounds almost at the top of my throat, I start hyperventilating, … I can get suicidal and think a lot about self-harming and when it gets too much, that will be my go-to

    Then I have these days where I feel all pumped up and think I am about to start living the life I want to, having big dreams, not being able to sleep or perhaps 4h a night. I keep talking and talking, cracking up jokes about everything, laughing uncontrollably; to the point where I start annoying myself because I am not so often like that. After those days I get all depressed again, I can start crying out of nowhere after having an amazing day. I already went to numerous psychiatrists and psychologists but their opinions just vary too much for me. One said I don't even need medication and can live life like I want, but I know that's not the case AT ALL. Others don't want to diagnose me, … I don't know what to do anymore. I don't want to live like this.

  • Its like your a fly in a moving vehicle. Trying hard to get out but trapped. And the car is not stopping aka life.

  • Is this credible tho👀

  • lately i’ve been pretty moody. today i would be happy & willing to do anything having sm energy. but then i have one minor thought & i become extremely depressed & wanting to die for about an hour. then it was like a snap of the fingers & i was out of that depressed mood & i was full of energy again. i do this a lot. most of the time out of my control. hmmmm gr8

  • What if people seem like they are a boring piece of s*** and they don't take an interest in you

  • i suffer and want death everday of my life
    no joke

  • "One in five Americans have mental disorders." My mom has five kids, they all have their natural flaws and as the list goes from oldest to youngest the brain gets smart but dark. I am the youngest, I have adhd, anxiety, depression, and a slight case of bipolar disorder. I've been diagnosed. I'm not on meds and when I crash it's like for two or three weeks but it's the worst, I'm low and I have a lot of panic attacks. I try to stay happy as long as I can and I try not to focus on it, when I just block it out it helps.

  • I have anxiety bipolar and depression

  • Oh gosh my mood changed alot today its strange its something new to me im creeped out sometimes ha

  • I have bipolar disorder

  • I believe my mother has Bipolar disorder. She has been behaving of manic states for now 5 years. She refuses to get a diagnosis. When I asked my family members whether her symptoms match she had 9 out of 10 symptoms that he Mayo Clinic says. She refuses to get help which has now led me to stop having a relationship with her. Her extreme moods have made me and other family members stop communicating with her.

  • I think I have bipolar disorder but I don't know what to do about it or what doctor should I talk to please help me out in the comments.

  • I suffer from BP I its difficult its having no control over your emotions, its an exhausting battle tbh but I'm glad people are getting more aware of the different mental disorders

  • All the anxiety makes sense.. But as for bipolar, i think the cycle starts with depression, i was definitely depressed before i was manic depressed. I think what happens is, on some level i know im at a low, but i dont know why, and theres this pressure not to be there, and i internalize more and more, and whats seems like a sheer force of will now, the pressure releases and i go into the manic high, then gravity takes effect, im at the previous low, or lower, and the cycle starts again. Im at the point where, my manic phases are too self destructive, and im still functional in depression, so im clinging to the depression for dear life.

  • My mom was depressed very sevearly when she was around 12 she never knew she was. My mood has lately been slowly changing and now I'm extremely anti social at home and stay in my room. I have horrible relationships with my family and usually always start an argument. I'm randomly annoyed too, and then in a second I can just be perfectly fine.

  • idk how i feel, i think i have it but everytime i try and talk about it to my parents they quickly change the subject (my mom has bipolar disorder) . i easily get frustrated and sad and worn out but when im not im hyper and extremely happy and always trying out new fun things. please help.

  • bipolar disorder can and will ruin your life.

  • and why is only americans have the most mental disorders ? all those public shootings…. so sad

  • "just go and see a doctor" easy to say when you're not living in a third world and/or a developing country.

  • I have bipolar but on the scale from mania to depression my doctor says I'm in the middle and it's hard I've been gaining weight like crazy and my mom is scared and so am i. Help?

  • I have ADHD and Anxiety.

  • i have my own thoughts for hours i was suffering from depression my brain got fing damaged mood swing once i was soo confident to people and know i can't even meet my friends

  • I believe that people who try to help me because of my psychosis are inferior because they do not match my philosophy. From that, I get aggressive around them (mostly online) and hate them.

  • Ffs why can I relate 🙁

  • I have bipolar 2. I've been hospitalized more than I'd like to admit. Sometimes I have these mixed episodes where I have all this energy, but all I want to do is die. So I act impulsively on my thoughts. Drank a disgusting amount too. I take a regimen of medications which seems to help me the most. The mood stabilizers kept me in a depression for years without relief into my hypo manic state. They recently put me on Cymbalta and feeling of being a husk of my original self went away. I do therapy, not really to talk about anything in my past that bothered me. But just to keep track of my moods, sometimes I dont realize I'm going a direction until it's too late.

  • I’m Bipolar and I get really mad and hyper my dog (Crouton) is bipolar (she’s not actually)

  • I had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder about 6 years ago. I was on meds for sometime but decided to stop it. I just can't depend on meds my whole life. Things aren't easy even now but I at least know when I'm going through which phase and this has helped me a lot. Keeping track of my mood in a journal has helped me. Sometimes I let myself watch movies all day when I'm feeling low and sometimes I get myself to be very very productive. I have found a way to manage my mood swings and make the best out of my situation.

  • so if i refrain myself getting euphoric in the manic stage, can i save myself getting depressed later?

  • ADHD growing up now I have bipolar depression

  • Honestly Iam scared to even think that I have bipolar I have barley any control over my moods like crying for no reason could anyone tell me if it’s bipolar or not

  • I'm schizoaffective bi-polar. High periods of anxiety make me hallucinate and form delusions. I feel powerful to a point I make collapse from the excitement. I do tend to subside from society due to anxiety of being caught doing bad things! Police for example make it difficult for me to live because I feel like they are always watching. Etc..

  • What about having anxiety and depression together?

  • My anxiety got to the point once where I was obsessing on every hand movement I was going to make washing my hair, the next morning…like I visualized it every night, and couldn't sleep. 😳

  • I have anxiety, im bipolar and I have adhd

  • It makes me feel like I don’t know who I will be when I wake up in the morning. Sometimes I don’t know how far away from reality I’m getting until my family brings me back in. It’s exhausting. Drugs help.

  • Hmmmm I think I have ADHD but I don't care ooooooof

  • Why did I have to get halfway through the video to learn about the subject of the video? It's like he's just cruising through his spiel and at 4:30 someone whispered "bro, this is about bipolar disorder"

  • I have Schizoaffective Disorder, which in a very simple explanation is having both Schizophrenia and Bipolar at the same time. When I get angry to the point where I lose control, it feels like something else is controlling my body, while I can't do anything but sit back and watch it unfold. My strategy is to get myself in my room before I explode, though it's not the healthiest of strategies. Numbing myself out to situations isn't healthy either, but it's best for those who live around me.

    Medication never did much for me and that made things even harder. When I took medication, I felt like my emotions were bottled up and exploded on one random day, vs having my emotions cycle throughout each day, but with a less intense feeling in just how sad or angry I was. Eventually, I started to become a recluse, which had an even worse effect on my mental health. Ultimately, I found that having the perfect balance between being around people and being by myself worked nicely. I get to have my time alone and I'm not burning any bridges.

  • I need a comment.
    I have depression, have inner demons , I'm antisocial, I like to be alone , I get angry easily at myself and everyone thinks I'm angry at everybody I see or live with wich I'm not , I laugh when I start to cry and above all that I can't accept that I'm " maybe " mentally ill, I can't accept that I can be mentally ill and/or have bipolar disorder because I've never been to a therapist, I've only been to a psychologist, and also from that I don't want to talk about that I'm crazy.
    What should I do or what can I do ?

  • Prayers to people living with this disorder 🙏🏿

  • Steal my mayo at work and you will trigger a disorder in me😂

  • Infographics if I could hug you guys I would. It takes courage to address things that are still attached to a stigma. We talk about it more these days, but it's still not enough. Thank you for using your platform to bring awareness and comfort. I look at all these beautiful comments, and I see how people who don't know each other are comforting one another and it moves me to tears bc this is what we need for growth. We need each other's unbiased support. I just want to say to your team and those in the comment section thank you 🤗🤗🤗

  • I'm a victim of the pharmaceutical industry. I'm just a normal kid but I "suffer" from 12 things.

  • My wifi is bipolar

  • I have bipolar and it's driving me crazy I have way to much energy that I start laughing maniacly (if that's even a word) and more twitchy that it's making me more dangerously insane that I might not hold it in for long

  • After watching this…. I’m starting to think I’m kinda f*cked in my life I don’t think I’m gonna last the next 30 years but hey gotta make the most of it while you can haha….

  • I’m fine

  • Yeah! I been diagnosed with bipolar maniac and it's sooo true about how you been explain it ! 💕💕💕 And it's also true about trauma !

  • Psychologist say if your mood swings within the same day it’s not bipolar but something else. They say it has to be at least a week. It seems to change depending on who you ask. 🤔

  • But i love dogs, i would be happy yo have a black dog follow me

  • I’m fighting my “ depression/anxiety “ by re wiring my brain.

  • rapid brain growth has it's drawbacks. 

    add it to the list.

  • One way I found of dealing with some parts of it was to have a big notepad where I could just sit and scribble down the thought chain in my head during low periods. Just latch on to a string of thought and following it with my pen or pencil. It shows some rather interesting trends when the book becomes more full when you go back through and look at the things that you've written and allowed me to start targeting specific things around me to make lifestyle changes as they were coming up a lot in my writing. If you show this book to a close friend or family member who is understanding, as I did, I found that with the people who had never experienced any mental health issues couldn't make any sense of what I had written, but people who had could make sense out of it and understand. It's strange, almost like your brain talks in a different language, that only another brain with similar workings can understand.

  • Is OCD count as an metal disorder?

  • First start with this.
    “What other country other than the United States advertises drugs or pharmaceuticals on television, magazines or any other forum?”

  • Ennui pronounced “awn-wee” not “inn-you-eye” 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  • Goes to show if you're mentally hurting then don't tell your fellow humans, they will just hurt you physically and poison you with harmful drugs

  • Being Bipolar has been the absolute most influential thing in my life. It's affected the way I view myself, the world around me, my relationships, and every other micro-detail possible. For me, as most people would say, it's a matter of finding balance using any and all resources possible. I've been given Lithium, to help manage my mania, and Zyprexa to help calm the grandiose delusions, although alone it's simply not enough. Even utilizing all the resources possible, the medicine, the therapy, the countless amount of support, the biggest challenge is still myself. I feel at war with myself, I don't want to be depressed, and I've learned that being manic is dangerous to me, so I feel like I'm caught in a mental tug-of-war in either direction and I'm just trying to make it work. The meds help, the therapy helps, learning more about the disorder helps, having the ones you care about learn more about the disorder helps (It helps a lot, seriously, make sure they learn more about what's going on with YOU.), having some sort of spiritual grounding can help some. All of these can vary between the biggest help in your life, they're all so critical in managing my Bipolar and sometimes I still need extra help. These are just some of the techniques and skills I've used to try and manage my life, and I hope that they can help someone else as well. Thank you for this video, and I hope everybody has a great day feeling a bit more educated.

  • Best days can become your worst memories.
    Due to blaming oneself for losing that person that makes your best days.
    You start to blame yourself for why you’ve drift or disconnected with that person.
    Hoping that one day you’ll get it back.
    However, for so long, you’ll feel hopeless.
    Thus , that’s the day where you’ll start to feel hopeless or courage.
    It really depends where your mind leads your thought to.

  • I don’t have bipolar but I’m 13 and I’m seeing myself have more and more outbursts, I’ve done my own research and even seen a therapist who has confirmed I probably have intermittent explosive disorder (they can’t diagnose me tho because where I’m from you can’t be diagnosed with anything serious until 16) and having IED is throwing me into a loop, I get scared that I’ll get mad at something and then I’ll end up getting mad at myself and having an episode, if anyone who indefinitely has IED could tell me ways to try and control it I’d appreciate it

  • I was diagnosed manic bipolar 12 yrs ago, it happen after i moved in US with my husband and 2 kids. The changes in lifestyle and environment hit me hard, away from family and friends. I felt alone, lonely depress and i buried myself into games, i cant concentrate in school work, nothing excite me nor make me happy. I couldnt finish anything i start. Because when i am high i can accomplished it but when it change my mood i will lost interest and i will never get back to it. Even when my high come back i will have a different interest that i will not be able to finish. I will feel worthless and then later bless, then worthless again. You are right it is like a roller coaster that you will never get off. I tried multiple meds that doctor prescribe nothing help. My brain wouldnt shut up, it is like 10,000 tv that you will try to watch and understand all at the same time. That is why we blah a lot and our story hops from one to another.

    Theres no meds help, support from friends and family is the only help i can grab and i could count on.

    Thank you!!

  • Anxiety and depression are both natural states due to circumstances. Anxiety and depression become a disorder when they're not in response to situational stimuli.

  • I'm changing "one night stand" to "copulation with strangers" in my vocabulary from today

  • People with bipolar feel no empathy.

  • Im always worried and I'm also sad

  • My psychiatrist was worried that I had bipolar when I came in only for OCD, GAD and depression. When I told him I felt like how mania would be (didn't know about mania yet that time) and few days later I felt so depressed and tired etc. I still wonder if I am now. The antidepressant I took (prozac) could be triggered the mania. Now is better. This was 8 months ago when I was diagnosed with OCD GAD and depression. I still feel the same some days, so happy and confident 1 day and so tired and unmotivated another day. Zz

  • Infographics almost had me in tears when he said the brain can bounce back.

  • Pretty soon, everything you will be labeled a disorder. LOL

  • Ethnocentric already explained and this video!!!

  • Our society is doomed. We are creating this! Lol

  • ADHD nowadays, it's parents not disciplining their kids. When I was a kid it did something wrong I was consequence. Nowadays it's whole Generations that is a bunch of sissies!

  • The extreme fluctuations of emotions, within a day as you described, is actually called hyper mania. I have this part of bipolar disorder, which goes along with my borderline personality disorder. Hyper mania is when your emotions fluctuate extremely. For example, I can literally go from happy, to feeling superior, to angry, to severely depressed within hours. This comes with extreme danger. People like me often act on these moods, then immediately switch. We act out impulsively. Impulsivity is a huge factor in bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder

  • I have adhd

  • Yeah… I know the pain of being judged badly from my mental/emotional disorders. Because of abuse as a young child, I had gotten PTSD, and my depression, anxiety, and Bipolar 1 came on much earlier than they would've if the abuse had not triggered it. The psychiatrist told my mother that it probably would've come on around age 13 or so. It was hard, most adults didn't know what to do with a 7 year old with this level of illness. I would awake screaming, see monstrous things, and have the kinds of feelings most people seek out drugs to have, but all involuntarily. Walls melting/breathing, seeing weird/crazy imaginary creatures, intense feelings of floating, that kind of stuff. On the positive side though, this has stopped me from wanting, or trying almost any consciousness altering substances. They aren't fun for me, they're utterly stressful.
