Now, you may be wondering what exactly is bipolar disorder. Also called manic depression, bipolar disorder is characterized by extreme changes in a person’s mood, behavior and thought, which may also be accompanied by a long period of depression lasting anywhere from hours to a month.
Bipolar disorder can have drastic effects on a person’s life. Not only might it affect their family life, but the condition can also keep someone from working, eventually leading to a loss of wages.
The good news is that if you suffer from bipolar disorder, you might be eligible for Social Security benefits. As you can imagine, the process of applying for these benefits might prove to be a daunting task. You should seek an expert to help you with the process, even if you have already been turned down for Social Security benefits.
