What is Bi polar affective disorder illness anyway. What causes Manic Depression and who are the people at risk? The cause is not known. Any person can develop manic depression, however, studies indicate that highly creative, sensitive people, people tending to be perfectionists and high achievers, have a higher incidence of bipolar affective disorder. Although biological factors seem to play a major role in producing the illness, a person\'s personality make up and or stresses in the environment may also play a part in bringing on an acute episode. From my perspective, it is the mood swing one goes through and it is very hard to stop this swing once set in motion. Just like a pendulum, the mood swings from depression to mania. What the drugs do is to slow the swing down to a small swing so as to effectively stop the mood swing. This doesn\'t always work, there are triggers in ones\' life that can start the mood swing up again. This can be good or bad depending on what happens during this time.
