Bipolar disorder comes in a variety of types, but the primary symptom of the mental disorder is dramatic and unpredictable mood swings. Depression and euphoria, or mania, alternate, to one degree or another. But with mixed bipolar disorder, a person experiences both mania and depression simultaneously or in rapid sequence.
