Living with Bipolar Mood Disorder can be likened to life on an endless and unpredictable roller coaster. Whether you are suffering from this disorder, or living with someone trapped in the cycle, your life becomes ruled by extreme emotions - sometimes up, sometimes down, sometimes some levelling off in between, but always with the knowledge that the ups and downs will return.
Unfortunately, because so many people suffering from Bipolar Mood Disorder experience ‘normal’ moods in between mania and depression, they are all too often labelled ‘moody’ by family and friends and suffer most of their lives undiagnosed.
If this ‘moodiness’ is affecting you or your loved one’s ability to function on a daily basis, however, it is probably worth seeking help.
The good news is that Bipolar Mood Disorder can be treated with both mood-stabilising medication and psychotherapy. Akeso Clinic’s General Psychiatry Units are specif-ically equipped to help you and your loved ones cope with the ups and downs of Bipolar Mood Disorder, not only provide patients with an integrated treatment programme de-signed to help stabilise mood swings, but also equipping patients and their loved ones with the necessary tools to help them manage their lives going forward.
