How can bipolar 1 feel for someone who has it, and this will be difficult to describe completely because, as you know, each person is different? In my experience, bipolar 1 can feel good sometimes because the mania can be a bit euphoric. This feeling does not always last long, but when my patients are going through a manic episode, they may have difficulty seeing it as a problem and feeling good about how productive they are and are enjoying the energy. I have also had patients and spectators tell me that the mania can often be really uncomfortable, almost as if it wanted to get out of their skin. If we encounter a mixed episode (when we have mania and depression at the same time) we may feel irritable and uncomfortable. This can also happen if someone prevents us from doing what we want when we are manic or we get in the way of engaging in manic behavior. This happened in sessions in which I noticed that a patient is manic and I try to intervene. They can be really angry and angry. So you should know that while mania can feel good sometimes, it is not always like that. Like any mental illness, we have to ask questions and try to understand how is the person in our life who has bipolar disorder. That way we can understand them better and their experience.
Bipolar disorder is associated with episodes of mood swings ranging from low depressive to high manic. The treatment is usually for life and often involves a combination of medication and psychotherapy.
Therapies include: support group, cognitive behavioral therapy, psychoeducation, family therapy and psychotherapy
