I've read that they're are really no real differences between the depression experienced by bipolars vs. unipolars with regard to food and sleep as ofetn alluded to. If fact If seen research now in a couple well known journals indicating that atypical depression is really the more common of the two, and also that depression more commonly exists with anxiety than without it.
I however have pimarily atypical depression and mild hypomanias (with lots of Anxiety and neurological stuff). There have been a few times where my atypical has turned into the "I cannot eat or sleep kind of depression." Generally when I was facing a loss on top of the atypical.
