  1. manic disorder

    Manic disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness or bipolar disorder, is a mental health condition characterized by extreme shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks. It often involves periods of excessively euphoric or irritable moods, known as mania or hypomania, alternating with periods of severe depression. These fluctuating moods may significantly interfere with a person's quality of life and ability to function. It is important to note that manic disorder is different from the usual ups and downs, as the symptoms are severe and could result in damaged relationships, poor job or school performance, and even suicide.
