Anxiety and depression can result from things visible such as relationship and employment problems, but their cause may be less obvious. Even the common cold impacts mood, as one example. But how many are aware that not only women but men also experience a monthly hormone cycle affecting mood? Feelings of depression and anxiety are a common reason people seek professional assistance.
In the case of bipolar, also referred to as manic-depressive disorder, the sufferer may experience extreme mood swings, periods of highs and lows impacted by life experience, but also by changes in season, summer to winter for example. And while there is no known “cure” for chronic depression or bi-polarity, their severity can be reduced, even managed, through counseling, psychotherapy and medication.
