Many people rely on stereotypes when speaking about mental disorders. They often do not rely on facts for their information,which can in turn create a stigma. It is urgent to state facts in order to not misunderstand about those afflicted with a mental illness. Most of the time, these emotions are not as quick or sudden as some people think. A person diagnosed with bipolar disorder may be stuck in a manic or depressive phase for a while before switching moods. After all, do not neurotypicals change mood? It unfortunately can not be cured but some treatments are available. It usually doesn’t affect young children. I believe this disorder is very easy to misdiagnose.
