WHAT ARE MANIA & HYPOMANIA?

Manic episodes are periods when people feel euphoric, elated, and full of energy. Though they may feel happy due to the mania, this can also be dangerous as they also usually sleepless, have difficulty focusing their thoughts, and can be prone to poor and risky decision-making such as spending money they don’t actually have.

Mania and hypomania usually occur as part of bipolar and are preceded or followed by periods of depression. However, it’s possible for mania and hypomania to occur on their own.

Manic Episodes Vs. Hypomanic Episodes: What’s the Difference?

The biggest difference between mania and hypomania is that hypomania is a less intense form that last for days, while mania lasts for weeks. People with hypomania may experience symptoms as extremely as those with mania, and may still be able to mostly live normally.

This difference is also the main factor that separates bipolar disorder I and bipolar disorder II; people with bipolar disorder II experience hypomania, and not the full-blown mania of bipolar disorder I.

Symptoms for mania and hypomania vary, but both have recognizable signs such as:

  • Feeling more twitchy or restless than usual
  • Increased or misplaced confidence

  • Children and adolescents may act out against authority, or overly silly

Modern science currently believes that there is no single cause of mania, or the bipolar disorders it is often a part of, but several factors contribute to the likelihood of a person having it. Some research indicates brain chemistry and structure may differ in people with bipolar disorder, but most studies agree that those with a family history or genetic predisposition are most likely to experience mania.

Long-Term Effects of Mania & Hypomania

Though people suffering from mania and hypomania often feel great in the moment, both can have devastating effect on patients’ lives. Some spend beyond their means, putting themselves into long-term debt. Others may damage their health by not sleeping enough, abusing drugs, having risky sex, or putting themselves in physical danger.

Mania is not a permanent state of mind, and every person will eventually come down, often into a dangerous depressive episode. The more extreme and erratic someone’s behavior during a manic episode, the more self-hate they may experience while at a low.

Testimonials

“This place has been a blessing from day one. As a mother of 3, it’s not always the easiest to get away from the kiddos. I love the fact that I don’t have to leave my home to meet with my therapist. The online counseling aspect is really convenient and was honestly the only way for me to get the help I needed. I plan on continuing my monthly sessions because I keep seeing more growth and positive change in myself each time.”

“Depression controlled my life for a very long time, and up until a few months ago I was hopeless of that ever changing. KAV helped me find balance again. They helped me find peace. I rediscovered what being happy feels like. Though I still have bad days, I now have the tools and support systems to get me through them. I finally feel in control of my life again, and for that I am grateful.”

– J.C.
“I started feeling really anxious and depressed after the birth of my first child, which was when one of my close friends told me about KAV. My first visit with the doctor was great. She asked me a lot of questions, was super attentive, and gave me the time to talk through my issues. I could tell that she genuinely cared about trying to help me. We talked about different medication options and she suggested therapy. I was hesitant at first, but I’m really glad I said yes because my counselor has really helped me explore all this new anxiety. It changes every day with a baby, but I do feel like I’m in such a better place now, and so much more available for my daughter.”

-E.M.
“Pain pills took me down a really dark path for many years. I’ve been to rehab several times, but could never stay clean for long after I got out. I thank the doctors and counselors at KAV every day for helping me turn my life around. It hasn’t been easy, but I’ve been sober for 14 months and have the belief in myself that it will stay that way. Most importantly, I can be the father and husband my family needs. Thank you KAV — you all truly saved my life!!!”

“Paying attention for long periods of time has been a struggle for as long as I can remember. It’s made things like school…relationships…holding down a job…etc pretty tough. Prior to coming here I’d heard of ADHD but never really looked into it…but after just a few visits my doctor and counselor helped me better understand it and get it under control. It’s been a really good experience so far…I only wish I would’ve pursued getting help like this sooner.”
