Bipolar Problems

mood-disorderEveryone experiences changes in his or her mood. And this is normal. What is not normal is when the mood swings are severe and extreme.

What is Mood and what is Affect??

Affect – It is the outward expression of emotion.
Mood- It is the way the person feels inside.
A Mood is an emotional state. Moods differ from emotions in that they are less specific, less intense, and less likely to be triggered by a particular stimulus or event. Moods generally have either a positive or negative valence. In other words, people typically speak of being in a good mood or a bad mood.
Mood Disorders are psychological disorders characterized by disturbances of moods or emotional states that are intense and persistent enough to be clearly maladaptive.
Mood disorders are normally episodic, which means that the disturbances can increase and decrease in the length of time the mood is experienced.
