Bipolar disorder is a serious brain illness. It is also known as manic-depressive illness. People with bipolar disorder go through spells where they feel very happy or very sad. These ups and downs are not the same that most people feel. Bipolar mood swings are so extreme that people with the illness may try to hurt themselves or others.
Anyone can suffer from bipolar disorder. Its effects can last a lifetime.
