Anyone who suffers from or has a loved one who suffers from bipolar disorder knows that the symptoms can be disabling. Suffering from bipolar disorder means more than subtle mood swings. Chemical imbalances in the brain can leave sufferers enduring severe high and low moods, Mood swings can be short-lived or can last for weeks or even months, disrupting everyday routines, stable relationships and the pursuit of employment. Other symptoms may include: insomnia, sleep deprivation, fatigue, suicidal thoughts, an inability to concentrate or remember, the need to compulsively shop or spend money, extreme optimism or inflated self-esteem, poor judgment, and rapid speech.
If you or someone you love is suffering from bipolar disorder, it is important to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. Without treatment, your mental health condition and symptoms may worsen and serious side effects such as suicidal thoughts may increase. Seeking treatment also creates a medical history of your mental health illness that will be useful to prove your eligibility for Social Security Disability benefits. Writing in a journal or using a calendar to document episodes of mania or depression is also helpful. At the Disability and Injury Law Offices of David R.
