What is Bipolar Disorder?

bipolar disorder

Bipolar disorder is a mental health condition characterized by significant fluctuations in mood, energy, and activity levels, ranging from periods of extreme up (manic or hypomanic) states to very down (depressive) states. Unlike ordinary mood swings, these shifts can affect job performance, school activities, relationships, and severely disrupt daily life.

The condition stems from a combination of genetics, brain structure and chemistry, and environmental factors. Episodes of mania and depression can occur spontaneously or may be triggered by stress or life changes, even without a clear cause. Recognizing bipolar disorder as a genuine medical issue, not a personal failure, is vital for seeking necessary treatment. It’s a significant health condition that warrants professional attention just as any physical illness does.

Symptoms of Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder presents through a range of symptoms, encompassing emotional, physical, and cognitive aspects, including:

Emotional Symptoms:

  • Extreme mood swings from euphoria or irritability (in manic episodes) to sadness and hopelessness (in depressive episodes)
  • Sudden shifts in mood and behavior that are not typical for the individual
  • Decreased need for sleep during manic episodes, feeling overly energetic
  • Increased need for sleep during depressive episodes, feeling excessively tired

Physical Symptoms:

  • Significant changes in appetite and sleep pattern

  • Physical agitation or slowing dow

  • Unexplained aches or pains

Cognitive Symptoms:

  • Difficulty concentrating, remembering, or making decisions

  • Rapid speech and racing thoughts in manic episodes

  • Delayed thought processes, difficulty in maintaining concentration in depressive episodes

  • Recurrent thoughts of death or suicide, or suicide attempts

I was recommended by a friend who said this place has helped her a lot. I was hesitant because of my experience with previous psychiatrists. But Janice is great. She really pays attention to my concerns, and I have been feeling such a sense of well being since having serviced with her. She is also extremely consistent. Sometimes our session lasts about 20 minutes or less because I hardly have any concerns regarding my medications. I appreciate her ability to really prescribe things that help long term. She also prescribed sleeping meds for my insomnia and I been sleeping earlier and better. I don’t wake up tired of weak. Thank you Janice 🙂

Dr. V. Rudoy is a wonderful doctor. Very professional and attentive. I have been seeing him for psychiatric care for a number of years and highly recommend him and this office in general. I’ve seen other psychiatric professionals who work with Dr. Rudoy here on occasion and they are all very competent and warm-hearted.

I have seen many many psychiatrists and Dr. Natalie Rimar is really as good as they come in this field. She is very well versed in the medical field and she gives you the time and attention every patient deserves as opposed to just going to any psychiatrist them giving just 5 minutes of their time and saying ok will RX you XYZ medication I sent it to your pharmacy goodbye. Dr. Rimar actually cares about her clients and takes her profession very seriously. Thank you Again!
