Can you overcome bipolar disorder?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Every morning you wake up with some desire and also desire to do something (although vague). This excitement when becomes excessive and unreasonable and hence coercive gets branded as MANIA. It is associated with acts of crime, violence and atrocity with varying degrees of intensity.The best way is to introspect and find out how reasonable and how important your desires are. This would preclude many desires which are unreasonable and not so very important even to you. Secondly it is worth finding out how much you are likely to harm others in fulfilling desires which are, so to say, important to you.Many times mania may manifest as undue restlessness. Your quiet and peaceful existence may appear to be passive and redundant and hence defeatist. It may disturb to you. Do not worry. You may try NAMASMARAN even if you are atheist. It is likely to avert many incidences of disasters in your life and help overcome at least borderline or subclinicical mania.

What are the most common warning signs of anxiety and depression?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Important signs that you might have a mood disorder instead of just a mood include the following:

  • Your mood - anxiety or depression - seems to have no cause or basis that you can determine. You have no idea why you feel the way you do.
  • Your mood lasts for longer than a few weeks.
  • Your mood is seriously interfering with your daily life.
  • Your mood has made you think about suicide, plan suicide, or attempt suicide.
If your moods seem to fit this list, you should make an appointment with two people: your doctor or psychiatrist, and a good therapist. You need a doctor to prescribe medication, and you need a therapist to teach you healthy ways to change your coping skills. The only cure for depression and anxiety is medication PLUS therapy.

What is a common symptom of depression?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The common symptoms of depression include thoughts, feelings, physical symptoms, and actions.

Depression is characterized by persistent negative thoughts, often directed at the self, but also directed outward, thoughts like "I'm a failure." or "No one loves me." or "The world is a terrible place." Depressive thoughts are characterized by all-or-none (black-and-white) thinking, overgeneralizations, jumping to negative conclusions when not warranted, labelling of people, and other logical fallacies or cognitive distortions that lead to a negative outlook on life. Also common in more severe depression, and sometimes present to some degree in more mild depressions are suicidal thoughts.

The feelings that are common symptoms of depression include feelings of sadness, despair, hopelessness, guilt, loneliness, and often a numbness or feeling of disconnection, especially from normally pleasurable activities.

The physical symptoms of depression include tiredness, trouble sleeping, or sleeping too much, increased or decreased appetite, loss of sex drive. Another common symptom is that all pain and discomfort in the body seems magnified; sometimes pain and discomfort will be felt even where there is no clear medical cause.

The actions that are the most common symptoms of depression are procrastination, and spending less time with family, friends, or co-workers. Depression often exacerbates other psychological problems, and can also manifest in other ways such as anger, obsessive-compulsive behavior, or irrational worrying about health.
