Bipolar Disorder (BP) refers to a type of mood disorder characterized by an ongoing combination of extreme highs and extreme lows. An episode of mania is an abnormally elevated or expansive mood, and feelings of euphoria are an exaggerated sense of well-being. The highs may alternate with lows, or both extremes may be felt at about the same time.
