Studies have found that bipolar disorder is a serious psychological illness affecting about 5.7 million adults in the U.S. Severe mood swings, irritability, depression, and an inability to concentrate are some of the common symptoms of bipolar disorder.
Sufferers have trouble performing everyday tasks which causes problems in their social and work life. The symptoms generally appear in early adulthood, but might also develop later in life.
