Were you looking for information about Bipolar Disorder? Bi polar is a common misspelling of bipolar disorder.
Because bipolar disorder is not often recognized as an illness, many people may suffer for years before it is properly diagnosed and treated. As with diabetes or heart disease, bipolar disorder is a long-term illness that must be carefully managed throughout a person's lifetime. Bipolar disorder is also known as manic-depressive illness because it involves cycles of mania and depression. The symptoms of this condition are more severe than the normal ups and downs most people experience, possibly resulting in poor job performance and even suicide.
