  • Answer: Manic is a mood. When you are manic you feel elated, as if it is the best moment of your life - like a birthday, a circus, and Christmas rolled into one. You feel as if God is speaking directly to you; this is called religious ideation. You feel as if you have super-powers.

    The downside to this is that when you feel like this, you are also not in your right mind. People suffering from mania do things like take off all their clothes and run down the middle of the street, or jump off a building thinking they can fly, or drive their car so fast that they lose control and crash. People who are manic often have psychotic symptoms such as hallucinations where they hear someone talking to them, or where they believe odd things such as that they are Jesus or Mohammad. Manic people often show risky behavior such as spending all their money, engaging in unsafe sex, driving too fast, or taking drugs.

    Mania is not a pleasant feeling. It seems as if you should be glad to feel that happy, but being out of control is scary. Not understanding what is happening to you, and not being able to stop what you are doing is scary also.

  • Answer: Absolutely. Type 1 Bipolar Affective Disorder (what one would classically call "manic-depression") at its most severe can cause psychotic symptoms of all sorts, particularly in the manic phase.
    Delusions of grandeur and delusions of persecution are common psychotic features associated with the manic phase of type 1 Bipolar disorder. Delusional thinking alone, in fact, is far more common as a psychotic feature when psychotic features are present, though frank hallucinations can also occur in the most severe cases.

    -auditory hallucinations
    -olfactory hallucinations
    Visual hallucinations, more commonly reported among those with true psychotic disorders, are rarer, though they are reported.
  • Answer: Bipolar disorder and Manic Depression Disorder are two terms that describe the same condition. It is believed however that Bipolar is a bit more accurate because the condition is characterized as being mood swings that seem to swing from one extreme to the other, hence Bipolar.
