In brief: Mood swings
Bipolar disorder as the name implies involves highs and lows in mood.
Period(s) of depression with at least one episode of mania ie euphoria, insomnia, racing thoughts sexual/financial indiscretions etc.

In brief: The hallmark of
Bipolar is mood swings.
So someone who is depressed one week and euphoric the next may have bipolar.
