So what is bi-polar disorder? It is also known as a “manic-depressive” condition and causes a person to be severely depressed at times and extremely euphoric at others. Both men and women can suffer from bi-polar disorder, and it can hit at any age; but many people seem to start noticing the symptoms in their twenties, although teens have been diagnosed as well. It also appears that approximately 85% of people suffering from bi-polar have a family history of depression.
