Bi-Polar disorder is a mental condition that can be physically debilitating! It is broken up into several different categories. Basically it consists of the following: SEVERE insomnia, deep depression, extreme fatigue (depending on which type you are), manic episodes (extreme high energy), irrational thinking,psychotic delusions (depends on type), etc. I am bi-polar and fall into the category of manic-depressive. Extreme high energy episodes cause such severe manic episodes that hardly anything will help, bad depression, suicidal thoughts, radical mood swings, and numerous other horrific symptoms. I began Prozac 7 months ago and thankfully have my disorder in check for now. I recommend MayoClinic or other trusted medical websites if you are looking for more detailed information, treatment options, etc.
