Is bipolar a mental disorder? There is a myth that Bipolar is mental disorder. It is just mood swing not more than that. Sometimes we feel very happy and sometimes we feel very sad. Usually we termed as that it is very common phenomenon in any individual. Nobody can be in same mood always.
In our life, sometimes things are not going in our way then we feel bad but when things are going as expected we feel happy. We have heard these words so many times in our life, one “Leave me Alone” and second “I am on the top of the world today“. It clearly shows that in which mood are we in. But there are many things which need to be noticed whenever you hear these two words either by ourselves or by somebody else. If we have left most or right most feelings in following things during our mood swing then we need little help.
If we are lying into left most column then we are Hypermanic and if we have right most then we are having depression. If any person has both then that person is having BIPOLAR DISORDER.
In medical terms, our mood lies in the scale of 1-10. 1 is for low and 10 is for hyper. Usually our mood swing is happened between 4-6 but bipolar disorder person has mood swing from 1-10. Hyper is very dangerous for relations, usually we lost relations during this time, while depression is very tough to do small tasks as well like taking bath, having brush, wake up from bed etc.
Bipolar is not any disease, it is a neurological imbalance, which can be happened because of many reasons, like
- loneliness is one of the biggest reason
- heavy load of expectation
- fear in work
- tension in relationship
- stressful environment
- improper timetable etc
In USA more than 10 million people are affected with that but there is a huge list of people who do not believe that they have any problem or they need any help. I feel like that people affected from bipolar have some special qualities. Just go through this list to know ,12 most famous people who affected with bipolar in the world. There are so many Indians as well. Shahrukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Honey Singh, Randeep Hooda are just few of them.
People who suffered from Bipolar, need help. Need someone to be with them. Understand them, listen them, they should not be judgmental. Bipolar may say bad words or abuse others but in actual they are not like that. They might be not able to do small tasks but I am sure, they are trying their level best. Just bear with them for sometime. Go through this link to understand, how can we help.
Bipolar affected people are special people. If they get help, they can conquer the world, else they leave the world with BIG Question. Whenever you see any kind of person around you, don’t ignore them and never ever use word MAD for them, because “mad is a very mad word”.
