The typical warning signs of bipolar disorder are extreme mood swings from mania to depression. Here are some specific early warning signs:
- Great mood. The patients can feel energetic but diverge from reality. They dive in a task passionately, but often stop half way through it when you lose energy.
- Feelings of guilt. They cannot help but feel guilty about their life.
- Angry for no reason. Patients feel angry even when they encounter small problems and don't understand why they react that way.
- Suicidal thoughts. This is the most serious sign. People feel disappointed about themselves and believe life is not worth living.
