Bipolar disorder is another mental illness that affects mood. You may feel very low sometimes (episodes of depression) and very high other times, with racing thoughts (episodes of mania). In manic episodes, you may feel unusually confident, happy or powerful, and not sleep much during these times. You may do things without thinking, including some risky behaviours.
