    Bipolar disorder can run in families. There is a greater chance of you developing bipolar disorder if there is a genetic component to this disorder. Medical conditions such as thyroid disease and neurological diseases (such as Parkinson’s syndrome) also puts one at greater risk of bipolar disorder.

    There are plenty of stereotypes when it comes to mental illnesses. But when you are suffering from bipolar it is rather difficult to figure its signs and symptoms. For all you know, the moodiness could be a momentary thing and not really something of great significance.

    One of the most distinct symptom of bipolar is its mood wings, highs and lows in mood keeps happening in this disorder. Then if you have a lot of incomplete projects then that too signifies bipolar. People suffering from bipolar find it difficult to go from task to task. Then of course depression is another very common factor for people suffering from bipolar disorder.
