Search elsewhere on this site, eg the Mind section, and you'll find descriptions of Depression, and of Bipolar Disorder. The Depressions in both are much the same ; in Bipolar Disorder you also have the manic, excessively "UP" phases which can be exhausting, too. It hardly matters which, in some abstract sense, might be more debilitating --- you have one or the other, and whatever you havem, is the most debilitating for you.
And to Shakira, Bipolar can be well controled by medication ( like Diabetes or High Blood Pressure ) but rarely cured. Supplements and diets are useless in managing it ; counselling helps both
