Full description:

Bipolar Disorder can affect people in different ways: some people experience mostly depressive episodes, others experience more “highs” (hypomania or mania), whilst others find their mood changes from day to day. What many people find though is that having powerful shifts in mood can sometimes make it difficult to live life to the full, and can be a source of difficulties in relationships with others.
