What depression in bipolar really looks like

Depression in bipolar includes the following symptoms:

  • Feelings of sadness, guilt and worthlessness

  • Feeling very irritable or angry

  • Drastic loss of energy

  • Sleep and eating disturbances

  • Loss of motivation to do anything even things a person once enjoyed

  • Tendency to isolate and avoid contact with other people

  • Persistent thoughts of death and suicide.

When a person is experiencing symptoms of mania they are not just happy for a few hours or days, they are beyond euphoric where they feel a great spurt of energy and a feeling of grandiosity around other people, which can last for a week or more..
