Are Depressive And Stressful Moods The Same In People With Bipolar Disorder?
I want to ask in bipolar disorder, one of the symptoms is depressed mood. So does depressed mood mean stress, depression or trauma? and what is the difference between the three? thank you
Hi Maria Hana .. Thank you for the question given.
People with bipolar disorder can experience drastic mood swings. the two episodes in bipolar are manic and depressive episodes. When a manic episode occurs, the sufferer will experience an elevated mood, feel that they do not need sleep, are reckless, and hallucinations can appear. Meanwhile, during the period of depression the sufferer will feel sad, have trouble sleeping, feel guilty, pessimistic, hopeless, feel worthless.
Mood can be defined as a mood that lasts a long time. So that the depressed mood is that the sufferer experiences a sad, gloomy mood, does not have the spirit of life, there are disturbances in daily life such as difficulty sleeping, being devoid of energy, and feeling like hurting himself. Meanwhile, what is meant by stress is the body's natural reaction in the face of certain changes or events. Stress can appear with frustration, anxiety, mood swings, or feeling worthless. Meanwhile, psychological trauma is a condition in which a person experiences psychological injuries as a result of serious events or events that have been experienced. For example, they have experienced physical violence, sexual violence, bullying, and so on.
