Definition


Dysphoria refers to a negative disruption in humor due to a bipolar disorder, withdrawal, bereavement, opiate use, or depression. This state is long-lasting in the majority of cases. Gender dysphoria is a term used by psychotherapists when their patients suffer from sexual identity troubles. A dysphoric individual feels a certain uneasiness, sometimes has episodes of anger that can disturb those around him, and may feel excessive sadness, boredom, or dissatisfaction.
