Bipolar Disorder Q&A

What is bipolar disorder?

Bipolar disorder is a mental health condition characterized by extreme mood swings. Feelings of depression cycle with intense euphoria (overly happy and upbeat). Continuous mood swings can cause troublesome thought and behavior patterns. But getting treated for bipolar disorder stabilizes your mood so you can live your best life.

What are the symptoms of bipolar disorder?

The symptoms of bipolar disorder include:

  • Extreme sadness cycled with exuberant joy
  • Fatigue and sleeping too much
  • Excessive energy and sleeping too little
  • Impulsive decision making
  • Thoughts of suicide
  • Loss of interest in favorite activities
  • Talking too much or being very quiet
  • Poor decision making
  • Problems at work, school, or in social situations
  • Mood swings
  • Problems concentrating
  • Substance misuse

The emotions you experience at any given time depend on whether you’re in a depressive or manic (euphoric) state of mind.

What causes bipolar disorder?

The cause of bipolar disorder isn’t known, and there’s no surefire way to prevent it. Risk factors for developing the condition appear to include a family history of mental health challenges, extreme or ongoing stress, traumatic life events, and drug or alcohol misuse. Seeking treatment at the first sign of bipolar disorder can diminish troublesome thought and behavior patterns.

How does my provider diagnose bipolar disorder?

During a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation, Kimberly asks questions about your mood, thoughts, and behaviors. She reviews your medical history, family’s history, symptoms, and medication before personalizing a treatment to match your needs.

How is bipolar disorder treated?

The standard bipolar disorder treatments are medication, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), other forms of psychotherapy, and lifestyle-change counseling. You might benefit from both individual and family therapies.

Kimberly takes a research-backed, Christian-based approach to mental health care. She focuses on helping you overcome bipolar disorder, anxiety, and other mental health challenges that can accompany your condition.

She follows up with you for therapy sessions and medication management as needed and changes your treatment whenever necessary. She also recommends eating nutritious foods, staying physically active, keeping your stress low, and getting plenty of sleep.

PSALM 23: 1-6

1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
