6 Reasons Bipolar Disorder Isn’t All Bad

You can think of the highs and the lows as two "poles" of mood, which is why it's called "bipolar" disorder. The main difference between bipolar 1 and bipolar 2 disorders lies in the severity of the manic episodes caused by each type. A person with bipolar 1 will experience a full manic episode, while a person with bipolar 2 will experience only a hypomanic episode (a period that's less severe than a full manic episode).
