Were you looking for information about Bipolar Disorder? Bipolor disorder is a common misspelling of bipolar disorder.
 
Bipolar disorder affects approximately 1 percent of the adult population in the United States in any given year. Although bipolar disorder typically develops in late adolescence or early adulthood, some people experience their first symptoms during childhood. This long-term illness is more severe than the normal ups and downs most people experience at some point in their life. Bipolar disorder causes unusual shifts in mood, energy levels, and the ability to function. As a result, this can lead to damaged relationships, poor work or school performance, and even suicide.
