    Out Of Control!

    I don’t know what is wrong with me. I believe I’m bipolar (haven’t gone to the doctor yet to confirm but I’m pretty sure I am) and the littlest things will set off my moods. I alternate between sad, angry, and just there all the time; occasionally I have an EXTREME happy...

    Maybe...

    A million questions... No answers... My curiosity is taking over. Can someone tell me the answer, please? Is it bipolar, or not? I can't imagine it being anything else. Schizoprenia...possibly...not really.

    I Know I Have Bipolar And Depression.

    I know deep down inside of me that I have depression and bipolar. My mom knows it too, but she is in denial of it and refuses to admit I do have it. She KNOWS I'm bipolar. She KNOWS it. Yet, she refuses to admit it. She says things like, "No, you aren't bipolar" or, "No, you don...

    I Just Don'T Know

    Sometimes, I'm super depressed and I just cry all the time and nothing seems to work. Then, other times, I'm super happy, off the walls with creativity and way overjoyed. But I never have delusions or anything. I don't know what this is.

    I'm overtly emotional and I'm constantly tearing myself up. I am super insecure, super angry, I feel like I don't know who I am, like I am living a lie. I'm super awkward socially, and I try not to be, but underneath this persona and facade of "cool", I'm really just a dorky...
