Post Could it be...

I do not fully under stand bipolar, but my emotions do change alot within a day to a week. Like, i can be normal teenager for a week or few days than it hits me when i cry that night or wrake up crying. I do get atleast 7 hours of sleep, and i am stessed out. I know it couldn't be depression because i would be sad all the time which i'm not. I'm not even sure what i am crying about, but it's normally about stuff that been happening latly, like this mourning when i cryed i thought about my hopes and dreams, that it all fails on me and to give up and it's not gonna happen. I have a great dream, and i get my hopes up alot and than let down cause it dosn't happen. I'm like cursed, cause everytime something good happens, something wose happens to be later. Like i said i can be happy for few days or a week. but within 2 weeks atleast 5 days are sad. So Could it be bipolar or is it just bring a normal teenager like everyone tells me? Please give me the respec and full replys. I well awser your questions if you need more info, in order to help me.

Re: Could it be...

None of us can diagnose you since we aren't medical professionals, but it very well could be bipolar. It could also be normal phases of being a teen. Based on what you've written though, it sounds like you rapid cycle between feeling normal and feeling sad. If you're concerned about this (and it sounds like you are), I would ask your parents to take you to a psychiatrist for an evaluation. You might also talk to a school counselor about the symptoms you are experiencing. Good luck!

Re: Could it be...

I agree with Dreams, as that is really the only way that you're going to be able to get an accurate question to your answers. I know you don't want to go to a pdoc or tdoc from a response you gave on the other board....but sometimes doing what we don't want is the only way to help ourselves. If you are BiPolar.....99.9% of the time the only way to treat it is through medications and if you pair that with therapy, that's usually a very good combo to get things under control and stable.
