Relapse: Without treatment of bipolar disorder, one risks having a relapse of their symptoms. Depending on the type of bipolar and severity, a relapse could mean a manic episode requiring hospitalization or worsening depression. It may not happen right away, but when it does, it will likely have a negative impact on your life. Why risk it? See your doctor and start treatment.
