Bipolar disorder involves periods of elevated or irritable mood (mania), alternating with periods of depression. The "mood swings" between mania and depression can be very abrupt.
Bipolar is a lifelong disease. It has no cure. However there is hope. It can be managed. I had to walk through alot of darkness before I realized that. I hope to share my experiences with others so that maybe someone will learn from my mistakes and not have to make them or maybe help a loved one gain some better understanding.
Even though it seems like the end of the world, it isn't. Just hold on. Keep walking. You're almost there.
