Difference between depression and bipolar disorder

Many times people consider depression and bipolar disorder to be the same, whereas this is not the case. But there is no denying that there is a relationship between the two.

Like bipolar, depression also brings symptoms like being extremely sad or happy, lack of positive things in mind, lack of energy and desire, sleeplessness.
