Bipolar Disorder

Treatment for Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder is a condition that goes beyond ordinary mood swings and involves extreme shifts in mood, energy levels, and activity levels. It can range from manic episodes characterised by elevated mood, impulsivity, and increased energy, to depressive episodes marked by intense sadness, hopelessness, and a loss of interest.

Bipolar disorder significantly impacts various aspects of a person’s life, including their psychological wellbeing, physical health, and social their interactions. It’s important to recognise that bipolar disorder is an illness, not a personal weakness, and even severe cases can be effectively treated at Treehouse Thailand.

 

Symptoms of bipolar disorder include:

Manic symptoms:

  • Elevated mood and euphoria
  • Increased energy and restlessness
  • Impulsive behaviour and poor judgment
  • Decreased need for sleep
  • Racing thoughts and difficulty concentrating

Depressive symptoms:

  • Intense sadness and hopelessness
  • Loss of interest in activities or hobbies
  • Fatigue and decreased energy
  • Changes in appetite and disturbed sleep patterns
  • Difficulty concentrating and making decisions

 

Overcoming the Symptoms of Bipolar Disorder

While mood swings might seem like normal variations in emotions, if left untreated, bipolar disorder can escalate, leading to more severe issues such as behavioural problems, relationship difficulties, substance abuse, and even suicidal thoughts or actions. Residential treatment is recommended in many cases by medical professionals.
