The person I care for doesn’t think they have bipolar disorder. They had a lot of stress in their life before they became unwell. Do they really have bipolar?
People with bipolar disorder are often very sensitive to stress, and stress is a major cause of bipolar episodes. Most people who have had episodes of mania and depression say that they were very stressed just before they became unwell. If a person has episodes caused by stresses that most people face from time to time, such as problems at work, relationship issues, or financial difficulties, it is very likely that they do have bipolar disorder.
