Be well Catherine.
Catherine Zeta-Jones has entered a treatment center for help with treating her bipolar disorder. It was always known that Catherine had Bipolar II disorder, especially as she had completed a previous course of treatment back in 2011. This time, it’s more of a ‘proactive’ measure, according to the report, and she’s said to be going in for a 30 day treatment.
Now, there are different stages of bipolar disorders, and in Catherine’s case, Bipolar II is categorized, “by at least one hypomanic episode and at least one major depressive episode; with this disorder, depressive episodes can be more frequent and are more intense than hypomanic episodes.” The definition states that people diagnosed with Bipolar II don’t experience a ‘full manic episode’, although they will sometimes show symptoms of ‘high energy and impulsiveness’.
