Bipolar Depression: The Emotional Pain Of Extreme Opposites

by The Anti Depression Team on

People with bipolar depression experience irratically powerful yet distinct emotional states called “mood episodes.” Energy, activity, sleep and behaviour undergo extreme changes with the change in mood.
An excessively ecstatic state’s called a manic episode, where sufferers experience a mood change from excessive happiness to extreme agitation.

An exceptionally miserable state’s called a depressive episode, where patients undergo changes in mood from feeling anxious to losing interest in one’s favourite pastimes.

Sometimes, a mixed state occurs where symptoms of both mania and depression are experienced causing bipolar depression sufferers to have the tendency to be explosive and irritable due to simultaneous feelings of hopelessness and joyfulness.
