Bipolar is a manic-depressive mental disorder, which causes a lot of unhappiness to the carriers of this disease, despite being a mental illness with a simple treatment. People with bipolar disorder have several stages, and very different symptoms.
Being bipolar is an abnormality that can be the result of several factors, such as genetic, biological, or brain abnormalities.
