Bipolar (I) Disorder, once known as Manic Depression, involves one or more manic episodes and one or more depressive episodes. Manic episodes are periods of time with abnormally heightened energy levels, thoughts, and mood. During a manic episode, an individual may feel euphoric, get little or no sleep, experience pressured or racing thoughts and speech, and may engage in self-destructive or impulsive behavior. Severe manic episodes may also include psychotic-type symptoms such as hallucinations and delusions. Episodes of mania and depression may alternate rapidly, may be separated by periods of normal experience, or may occur simultaneously in a mixed episode. Based on the level of severity of episodes and duration/chronicity, individuals may be diagnosed with other variations of Bipolar Disorder that fall in this category including Bipolar (II) Disorder, and Cyclothymic Disorder.
