2. Bipolar II?

As you might have already guessed, bipolar II is very similar to bipolar I. The key difference between the two is that, in bipolar II, the patient will not reach full-blown mania. Mania is a condition where the patient is experiencing a highly elevated mood and finding their selves full of energy.

Instead of reaching full-blown mania, the patient will instead reach a milder version that is known as hypomania. Another difference is that patients with bipolar II are more likely to suffer from episodes of depression than mania. The patient will usually be able to live a relatively normal life in between periods of depression or mania.
