An A to Z glossary of disabilities

Formally known as manic depression, people coping with Bipolar can experience irregular mood swings from one extreme to the other.

During these times they can feel highly overactive or very low and depressed. People with Bipolar are usually diagnosed with depression first, they will then experience manic episodes where they can feel very high before being told they are living with the condition.

It can be rare for a Bipolar patient to feel in a ‘normal state of mind’ on a regular basis.
