If you have bipolar 1 disorder, you're not alone
Approximately 1% of American adults live with bipolar 1 disorder, many of whom did not know that they had it until they were diagnosed by a doctor.
Bipolar 1 disorder is a lifelong condition that can often be managed through a prescribed treatment plan. While the exact cause is not known, one theory says it could be caused when certain chemicals in the brain get out of balance. Those chemicals, called neurotransmitters, send signals that can affect your behavior or mood.
Bipolar 1 disorder can cause changes in thoughts, mood, and energy levels.
With bipolar 1 disorder, you may experience clear changes between manic ("high") or depressive ("low") episodes.
A mixed episode means having both high and low symptoms at the same time. For example, during a mixed episode, you may feel overly excited but also sad.
