    It's hard to explain.

    Obviously I'm not going to diagnose myself, I shall maybe see someone if it gets worse. However, I can have certain episodes where I completely shut off, I zone out of nearly all conversations I am in and I just end up feeling genuinely down. This can happen for a few days up to...

    I Hate Myself

    I just don't know what's wrong with me. I don't know why, but I just hate myself. I'm like my own worst enemy. All of my life I've been like this. I'm constantly conflicted, or constantly switching between things. I can be happy one second, and pissed off the next. I can be calm...

    Lucid, But Drunk

    After smoking pot daily for months on end, I've hit a three day stretch while at home from college (I know it doesn't sound like much). But I haven't felt this clear headed in ages. It feels liberating in a sense. Because bud is so accessible at college I always buy it ( no...

    I've always thought I have this to some extent,

    though not fully; I can sometimes control letting my emotions show. But they change so quickly with one little thing that happens that shouldn't even be a big deal. They're always so intense that I feel physical pain often from them. I can't breathe often when I feel angry or...

    Initially I was diagnosed with depression

    and "adjustment disorder" but now when I think about how on a daily basis I am an "emotional roller coaster" and match up the symptoms of bipolar disorder. There is no doubt in my mind that this is what I'm suffering from. I've taken Zoloft for many years followed by Paxil and...

    My mood changes randomly.

    One minute I could be happy and joyful, but the next I'll be in tears sobbing. This has been going on for 2 years straight. I've never thought of seeing someone because didn't think it was a big deal, but my close friends and family are noticing it.

    My Emotions Are Off The Charts

    My mood changes constantly. My therapist says that bipolarity is where you're extremely happy for no apparent reason for a couple of days then you're pissed for no reason. I sometimes feel that way, sometimes I don't. I don't get it.

    I get irritated quickly,

    And I get extremely mad quickly also. It doesn't take much for me to get mad. But also I'm always sad. So maybe I have bipolar depression? UGH! I need help! (And NO, it's not because it's 'that time of the month')

    is, There will be periods when I'm happy and just completely hyper and I feel completely fine and nothing bothers me and I feel like I'm on top of the world and no one can ever bring me down and then the next day or moment, my whole body could just shut down. Like I'll feel so...
