)-- The condition that was referred to as “manic depression” has a new name today – it is Bipolar Disorder. No matter which name you use to describe the illness, it is really very important to understand the condition. That is because it can often be quite confusing and frustrating not just for the sufferers, but also for those living with the person, and his or her friends and family.

A website, BipolarDisorderLiving.com, is now helping everybody understand the disease and its symptoms better by publishing free information.
Typically, the bipolar disorder causes extreme mood swings in a person. There are two distinct emotional states here – depressive and manic. The person may appear extremely exuberant and happy one moment, and completely depressed just after it. On top of that, both the state of happiness of depression may be completely unrelated to what is happening around him or her.
Though we are all affected by various human emotions such as sadness, anger, elation, and others, but in those who are suffering from the bipolar disorder, the emotional changes could be drastic and extreme. Because of these extreme changes, those who know the person or live or work with him or her may become frustrated, and even angry. But it is important to understand that the person is behaving in this particular way because of his or her medical condition. The person does not have any control over these mood swings as it is attributed to sudden chemical imbalances within the brain.
