Mental Illnesses dealt with in Double Trouble with Tuscany and Beyond

Bipolar disorder

Bipolar disorder is a mental health problem that mainly affects your mood. If you have bipolar disorder, you are likely to have times where you experience:

  • manic or hypomanic episodes (feeling high)

  • depressive episodes (feeling low)

  • potentially some psychotic symptoms during manic or depressed episodes

Everyone has variations in their mood, but in bipolar disorder these changes can be very distressing and have a big impact on your life. You may feel that your high and low moods are extreme, and that swings in your mood are overwhelming.

Puerperal psychosis

 

Puerpeal psychosis is a serious but rare mental health problem which develops after you give birth. It is sometimes called Postpartum Psychosis. 

Postpartum psychosis can be an overwhelming and frightening experience, and it is important to seek help as soon as possible if you experience symptoms. But with the right support, most people fully recover.
