Publisher's summary

For anybody familiar with the condition known as bipolar 2, you will probably know how difficult and distressing the condition can be. Bipolar 2 Disorder is a condition most commonly characterized by at least one hypomanic (happy) episode and one major depressive episode.

Firstly, what is bipolar 2? Bipolar 2 disorder, is a type of mental illness that is very similar to bipolar 1 disorder. Typically, people suffering from bipolar 2 will experience severe mood swings and changes, alternating from periods of extreme lows, to highs over time.

The only real difference between bipolar 1 and 2 is that in bipolar 2, the person suffering from the condition will never experience what is known as full on "mania" type highs. The less-intense elevated moods in bipolar 2 disorder are known as "hypomania" or hypomanic episodes. Generally, people suffering from bipolar 2 disorder will have, or will experience at least one hypomanic episode in their life. Unfortunately, people suffering from this condition also suffer spells of depression, sometimes quite severe. This is where the term "manic depression" comes from.
