Depressive episode is like very intense depression. All of a sudden you can lose interest in things you enjoy, have very negative thoughts, feel hopeless and even have suicidal thoughts and behaviours. It's very important to get help immediately if self-destructive thoughts appear. Typically depressive episode lasts longer but is a bit milder with type 2 bipolar. This does not mean it's less serious, it just manifests differently.
Bipolar disorder There's two types, 1 and 2. they area bit different, but both are serious and medication is often mandatory. Simply put, bipolar causes severe mood swings called depressive and manic (type 1) or hypo manic (type 2) episodes. One can switch through these several times a day, or it can take weeks. Mixed episodes can happen too, that's when some depressive and manic features are present at the same time.
