Experiencing extreme highs and lows can be exhausting, and it may be a sign of bipolar disorder. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), about 2.8% of the population is diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which is characterized by dramatic shifts in a person’s mood, energy, and ability to think clearly. People with bipolar disorder alternate from high moods (mania) and low moods (depression) in a way that makes daily life difficult or impossible.
Without treatment, bipolar disorder can get worse and people can even experience psychotic symptoms (like hallucinations) during their manic and depressive episodes. With the right treatment, however, many people learn to manage their symptoms and live full lives, despite their condition.
