What is Bipolar II?

Any traumatizing episode could at times be causing symptoms of the mood-amending sickness.

Specialists state that patients go through high moods – that could cause spells of heightened activity and even depressive episodes.

Disparate to bipolar I, the ‘high’ moods wouldn’t be reaching peak manic levels.

Instead of plummeting into deep depression, such a patient could be rather sociable, efficient & mostly over-productive as compared to usual – another rationale for it mostly going undetected.

While in the hypomania phase, mostly the person would be more at risk of being suicidal or acting on his intentions to commit suicide.

Women have a greater likelihood of experiencing bipolar II disorder. As the hypomania episodes are brief in span & acuteness, they don’t lead to much troublesome behaviours. But, the sporadic incidents of depression classically would be lasting more as compared to hypomania phase.

Celebs that’ve allegedly battled varied types of bipolar disorder include Van Damme, Linda Hamilton, Stephen Fry, singer Sinead o Connor, Charlie Sheen & Britney Spears. The condition can be treated with drugs.

In case a single or both parents is having mood disorder then it increases that person’s chances of developing bipolar disorders. Other contributory factors entail being stressed out, sickness, demise or lost vocation. Moreover, scientists deem that this condition might be arising partly due to imbalances in some or all the brain’s neurotransmitters.

At times, an upsetting episode which is causal to immense stress can lead to bipolar II disorder developing. Other likely reasons entail an irregular level of hormones & drug usage.
