What is the difference between depression and bipolar disorder?
Depression and bipolar disorder are both conditions that affect mood. The main difference between them is that people with depression feel sad or miserable most of the time, while people with bipolar disorder have extreme mood swings that range from feeling high or very energetic, to feeling sad and miserable.
