Suffering from Bipolar Disorder can feel like a never-ending rollercoaster-ride emotionally for both you and your loved ones. Maybe you are suffering from short periods of elated mood, excess energy, lowered need for sleep, grandiose ideas, and even reckless behavior, such as spending a lot of money, engaging in risky sexual behavior, or using drugs. you may feel like you are a different person, and there are no limits as to what you can do in life.
The good news is that we can help.
If you have bipolar disorder, you may do things that you later regret, feel ashamed or embarrassed about, things that get you in trouble with the law or end up with serious consequences for your health, financial, social, work, and family relationships.
Other times you may feel a lack of energy, sleepiness, apathy, hopelessness, concentration problems, weight gain or loss, lack of appetite, moodiness, and loss of pleasure. In some cases the depression and the mania/hypomania change rather rapidly, other times it can take months before a manic/hypomanic episode returns. Since we use scientifically supported treatments for Bipolar Disorder, there is good reason to believe your (or your loved one’s) symptoms can begin to improve very soon.
Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) has been shown to help those with depression and bipolar disorder, especially when combined with the proper medication.
Bipolar disorders are often treated with psychotropic medications, e.g., lithium and Depakote. There is scientific evidence that adding cognitive behavioral therapy as an adjunct can be helpful. Bipolar symptoms may decrease further and increases in coping skills are found when therapy is added.
