Depressive Manic / Bipolar Disorder

Depressive Manic 1 Comment »

The term depressive manic is usually referred to as bipolar disorder in this day and age.  Bipolar is a condition that affects a lot of people.  These individuals usually don’t understand that what is happening to them is not normal.  They usually experience mood swings that can elevate from extreme feelings of wellbeing to extreme feelings of depression.  Many also experience a mood that has been described as in between high and low.  Bipolar can be experienced in a mild form.  It is when the condition is extreme that it becomes life altering.  A person who is experiencing a manic episode can have feelings of complete euphoria.  They can even reach a state where they truly believe they are invincible.  Some even believe they have special powers or called to be prophets.  At this time many bipolar sufferers become extremely religious believing they have been given a mission by God.  During this stage the bipolar can become self destructive because he or she believes they are invincible.

Because there is such a feeling of euphoria the bipolar sufferer very often enjoys the manic state.  This state can last from a few hours to many months.  But at some point the sufferer’s mood will change to depression.  The contrast between the manic episode and the depression is acutely felt.  The depression is as severe as the manic mood.  The person feels completely hopeless and full of deep despair.  This is a time when thoughts of suicide can manifest.  It is very important that manic depressive behavior is accurately diagnosed by a professional.  This will prevent the sufferer from carrying out destructive behavior.

Obsessive Disorder Suffered By Millions

Obsessive Disorder No Comments »

Obsessive disorder is a condition that is endured by millions in the United States alone.  Many people simply suffer in complete silence.  If the condition is not treated it will only worsen to the point where it completely disrupts the person’s life.  There are people who are in various stages of this condition.  Some have the disorder mildly while others have it in a form that can only be described as severe.  This disorder can make having a normal job or social life impossible.  The individual can become so caught up in his or her obsessive behavior that they can’t concentrate on anything else.  This very often leads to an individual being dismissed from his or her place of employment.

An individual can become so distraught if he or she is unable to carry out their obsessive behavior that it turns into a full blown panic attack.  It is very common for those with a severe obsessive disorder to stay confined to the home.  This is disruptive behavior.  It is behavior that prevents the sufferer from living a normal life.  Being kept out of everyday society is not good and it’s especially not good for the person who has this disorder.   There are of course people who are simply regarded as quirky.  Their habits seem a bit odd but they do manage to carry on with a relatively normal existence.
