Bipolar personality disorder
To begin, we must surely define what a mental illness is, and although it took some time to reach a somewhat more concrete definition of this, this concept has been appointed and structured by various specialists throughout the age of all.Over time, various theories have been presented on this concept, among which the following is made:
- Based on their historical study, mental illnesses may be defined as the final product that develops from the interaction of the human being with its biological or social environment.
- According to its form of manifestation, a mental illness may be what arises from the cultures and beliefs and ideas that it has about certain things, or in the same way, the one that arises in an organic way, being that which is that which is originates without human intervention.
However, and these being the two main theories that link the already mentioned concept, both converge in the same common idea: mental illnesses will be product or will proceed from the religious, social and biological sphere of the patient.
A metal disease will consist of much more than only the areas that we have mentioned above, according to Edwin Goffman there is a more important factor that should be considered: this factor is called stigma. Stigma is a negative personal attribute that we apply about ourselves or all the situations in which we develop, thus giving way to signs that indicate dangerous behaviors that can pray to situations that generate vulnerability.
Thus, in order to give continuity to the topics derived from this research project, I thought it was necessary to mention the most common stories that are told about all mental illness:
Mental illnesses include an entire world of more diseases that have been previously analyzed, which are barely being or even some that are still unknown today, but despite all this, the myth that the myth has been created or dispersed Some of these diseases may be for life to be carried as a burden throughout the patient’s life, for them, this part of the research will focus on bipolarity disorder to be able to know their neuropsychological characteristics, investigating in order to confirm or deny that myth of treatment and follow up with the limitations that may arise, all with the purpose of being able to create a different perspective about people who do not know even more on this issue.
And so, in order to continue, we believe it is important that the first thing that must be done by wanting to investigate a subject in detail is to specify what you want to achieve with this research, therefore, we mention the main objective:
- Inform and know with greater depth any term and situation that involve mental illnesses (in this case it will be bipolarity disorder) to create or manage to provide a new perspective on what this disorder is and all the treatment that entails.
Bipolarity disorder has been classified as a "manic – depressive" disease that consists mainly of sudden changes in humor and regulating it that usually occurs recurrently on personality or day to day of people who usually suffer from it.
In turn, this disorder is also considered a chronic disorder because it is not always suffering at all, that is, there are situations of relapses and some recovery periods; Therefore, the disorder does not manifest one hundred percent in certain periods of time.
Bipolarity disorder usually occurs in varied actions or attitudes that will come from the individual, this is characterized by a series of exaltation episodes in which the regulation of the humor of the person who has already been mentioned; These episodes have been called by specialists as "hypomania". These include an affective attitude that may be of irritability, hyperactivity, anger, resentment or any other mood that differs from common mood that the patient usually has in his daily life.
Based on the historical background of what is a mental illness, we know that these diseases may arise as a product of the areas in which the individual is involved or may have its origin in the biological field, in which there is no influence human. This is also considered as a characteristic of this disorder that we cannot miss.
Bipolarity, a common name for this disorder, has been considered as a disease that will undoubtedly biological, that is, there is no social, religious or cultural field that can help develop it at a higher level, and even, currently, currently, Genetics has been determined as the main risk factor. Although, in the same way, the social spheres can promote the development of this disease a bit.
Similarly, a study has estimated that this disorder has prevailed around 1% and 2.4% of the population, equally affecting people of both sexes and in the same proportion, that is, it has not been scientifically demonstrated that it affects a single sex in a greater amount. Also, it was concluded that there is a greater probability of danger to suffering from this disorder in people around 20 or 30 years of age.
The aforementioned characteristics are a general aspect of everything that is bipolarity, however, there are more detailed characteristics that derive from the classification of the disease:
- Bipolar disorder I: characterized mainly by presenting at least one manic or mixed episode that can sometimes develop depressive lapses, although these do not usually occur in all medical cases of type I bipolar disorder.
- Bipolar Disorder II: Type of disorder characterized by more frequent and more intensity depressive episodes, also including hypomania episodes. In this type the manic or mixed lapses are discarded.
- Cyclootimia: characteristic by the presence innumerable hypomaniacs, minor depressions and alterations to the mood that frequent the patient for a time greater than 2 years.
However, these types of bipolar disorder can only be diagnosed by a specialist to avoid erroneous treatments; All this because, usually, bipolarity disorder is usually confused with depression to its maximum alteration, mainly when the patient begins to experience or present their first depressive episodes.
