I Think Im Bipolar

    I went to the doctor yesterday

    and told him all my symptoms. He was only a GP and can't make the decision if I have bipolar disorder or not but he seems to think that's the case. He has now referred me to a specialist so here's hoping I find out what exactly is up with me and what they can do to help.

    I Think So...

    I think I'm bipolar. Because my mood is constantly changing. I'll be really depressed, tired, and sometime even crying, then a few minutes later I am very happy, energetic, and laughing for no reason. And this happens all the time. But I'm still not shure...

    I just have these crazy mood swings

    that I have no explanation for. And no I'm not pregnant.. This is the only explanation that I can think of. I lash out easily even when I don't mean to.. It's a sore subject for me..

    Is What I Am Experiencing Normal?

    I live alone, and I'm a bit of an introvert, so sometimes its hard to judge if what I am experiencing is normal. I've never really spoken to anyone about this, but I experience what I refer to as 'seasons'. Now I know everyone has changes in mood and experiences, but I'm starting...

    Hi, I'm a 21 year old medical student living

    abroad, I was diagnosed with bipolar nearly 3 years ago, and before that I struggled a lot. I let it get quite far before my family told me to seek medical help, and finally gave me the courage to take a step forward. I've dealt with severe depression and bipolar for as long as...

    I've got the doctor on Thursday.

    Hopefully they won't just pawn me off and tell me there's nothing wrong like the GP's in the UK usually do. I know there's something wrong. I can relate to so many symptoms.

    Mood Shifts

    I'm the kind of person who doesn't really like showing people that I'm sad. I don't share my problems when I know I can solve them by myself. When I feel angry at someone I just ignore it 'cause I know that feeling won't last long. After years of being like this I kind of noticed...
