Social Security Disability and Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder is a serious mental illness that is characterized by extreme changes in mood — periods of depression and periods of being extremely happy or being irritable. People diagnosed with bipolar disorder often experience both mania and depression. Common symptoms during the manic phase include: poor concentration, poor judgment, poor temper control, little need for sleep, and reckless behavior. Common symptoms during the depressive episode include: sadness, difficulty concentrating, remembering or making decisions, eating problems, fatigue or lack of energy, loss of pleasure, feeling worthless, thoughts of death or suicide. If you are unable to work as a result of your Bipolar Disorder, or any other condition, Social Security Disability can provide essential benefits. At Disability Advocates Group, we have successfully assisted many clients suffering from Bipolar Disorder to get the Social Security Disability benefits they need and deserve.
