B, Bipolar Supporters Mini Course Part 1 of 14

Hi B,

Welcome to Part 1 of my Bipolar Supporters Mini course.  
Before I get started today, I just wanted to let you know that 
I'm not a professional writer, so if you come across some
misspelled words or typos, please forgive me.  I'm just trying 
to tell you what I've learned the HARD way by supporting my 
mother who has suffered from bipolar disorder her entire

Today, we are going to talk about exactly what bipolar disorder is.

So what is bipolar disorder?

Bipolar disorder, also known as manic depression, is a 
brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in a person's
mood, energy, and ability to function. Bipolar disorder 
causes intense, long-lasting mood swings in two extreme 
directions: mania and depression.  We'll talk more about 
the specific symptoms of each extreme a little later in the 

Although, no one is entirely sure what causes bipolar,
evidence suggests that it has to do with the chemicals
in the brain.  Changes in the levels of these chemicals
can cause parts of the brain to become either 
overstimulated or under stimulated, thus resulting in 
the two behavior extremes.

When your loved one is exhibiting symptoms of either 
mania or depression, they are considered to be in an 
episode and are not stable.  During this time, you 
will need to focus on getting them help from a medical 

The most important thing to keep in mind about bipolar
disorder is that it is NOT something your loved one can
control or fix on their own.  It is caused by an imbalance
in the chemicals in the brain and is passed on in families,
so there's nothing your loved one could do to prevent it
or to make it happen.  So, please, don't blame them
because they have this disorder.

Now in the next email, I'm going to provide you with
a little background information on why I'm sharing
this information with you and why I think it's so

However, if you need more information on how to
cope with bipolar disorder now, then go to 

Best wishes until then. 

Your friend,

David Oliver
