    I stand with my friends full of joy.

    then **** I contemplate life and get depressed, anger spring out ready to explode but I'm overwhelmed by the fact that I'm undecided about life and full of mixed emotions.

    I think I am bipolar

    because I was talking to this guy a while ago and I told him that I think I'm bipolar and now I think he hates my guts. (You know who you are) So I am sorry. I'm so sorry for this.

    This is my first post here,

    I may sound a little boring, but I have been depressed for a while. I'm 21, female and unable to analyze my feelings and state of being right now. I have extreme mood swings, between the gap of a few hours, when I am most affected by some thoughts. This has been going on for...

    Being Unable To Explain Is What Gets Me

       Not being able to explain my problems is what gets me the most. These waves that keep occuring much too often finally took a toll on me. I began to type my symptoms into the google search engine and the first thing that pops up is borderline personality disorder...

    Friday morning I felt on top of the world,

    and then I came home from school and an hour later or so I felt really depressed. I want to disappear from the world

    But I might just be oddly depressed,

    and not feeling much emotion except for sadness, anger, and hatred. The only thing saying I'm not bipolar is even those three emotions are faint.

    I have never been professionally diagnosed,

    however, and I'm too afraid to mention it to my parents. I exhibit the usual "symptoms" I suppose you could call it. At times, sometimes for multiple weeks I feel fantastic! I have plenty of motivation to get things I need to be done finished, I can feel more social and outgoing...

    Not Diagnosed, But I Think I Am...

    This is how my mood goes throughout the day: Irritable. Numb. Okay. Annoyed.Apathetic. Happy.Bitchy. Angry. Depressed. Hyper.Empty.Suicidal. Numb. It's a different pattern everyday, and the moods can last an hour to 30 seconds.

    I've been getting these really intense mood

    swings, like one moment I'll be really angry at my friends and never want to see them again, and the next I'll love them and never want to leave them. Also with people. When I talk, we'll just be talking about some random thing, and I'll be happy and hyper, but then I'll get...

    I don't really get extreme highs,

    I get days where I feel "normal" and not severely depressed, or days where I am pretty happy, but not crazy with my money or anything like that. At the end of the "happy" day or even within a few hours, I'll crash and not be happy anymore, instead I'll be very irritable or sad...

    or mind. I'm practically reckless when it comes to both no matter how hard I try to not be impulsive. My impulsiveness has gotten me into trouble numerous times. I've been having this problem since 6th grade and it intensified in 9th. I've taken multiple bipolar screen tests...

    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...

    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 Life Is a Rollercoaster Ride.

    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...
