Bipolar? In that case, talk to a doctor, counselor or psychologist about it.
Or again- just mood swings??

Well, if there are triggers and reason's for your change in mood, things that set you off or make you feel the way you do, I would say it is just puberty, but if there seems to be no warning to YOU, and you are confused by it, then I would say talk to a trusted adult or the school nurse/therapist about it. This is probably just being a teenager, but it could be signs of bipolar disorder, depression, or even BPD.

ST, I was the exact same way
I started talking to people, you know letting out my feelings about life. Eventually others started noticing the mood changes and they suggested I go to a therapist person (I still don't know what they're real job title is xD). And they told me I had a form of bipolar. First I was freaked out, but they gave me medication and I'm feeling way better.
I'm not saying you have bipolar, just that talking to people and seeking help for yourself will really help you. Good luck ST :hug:

I know how you feel.. I'm the exact way. I'm not saying you ARE, but you SOUND manic depressed (bi-polar.) I am, and it sucks. Get tested, get meds, and you should be great to go. Just because you're like that doesn't mean anything bad, don't worry.

It *could* be bipolarity. Sometimes I really think I suffer from it too, but I know I'd never want to solve it; the 'ecstatic ups' really make up for the 'low downs'; I know I wouldn't like it in the middle!! :3

Just do what you think is right, but suicide will never, ever be the answer. Trust everyone here on that! <3

Probably true. Though to be honest, that doesn't mean that it couldn't be. But you're probably right. I mean, I have wicked mood swings sometimes, and I'm not bipolar as far as I know. When it reaches a certain level, though, there might be a greater chance of it. If that made sense. ^^;

And I ahve mood swings... I mean I don't see why some one can't jsut be mean one sec then happy the next..
what if some event happened that made them that way?
we never really know...
so we can't really call it bi polar...

We all get moodswings, it seems. ^^ And I really don't think that anyone has any hope of diagnosing this from one secret anyways. :D

But it is possible. You know, if the mood swings are significant enough, I suppose. *thinks*

I agree. I think too many people are playing Doctor trying to diagnose people as bipolar just because they can. A single mood swing means bipolar. Actually mood swings are normal. According to the 'doctors' here we're probably all bi-polar!

i told my theripist about this when i felt like that. told her i think i have acute bipolar. she didnt do much, just gave me a booklet and told me how bipolar's go from highs and lows. (totally left out my acute part)
but even though my dr was/is an idiot, i would vote on a dr :D cant be all that bad
Or it could be like other people said, and just silly hormones. depends on how often the moods swich really

Ah. I'm somewhat know how you feel. I've been a little out of it lately. And I've been having mood changed. I know what my problem is though. I just need to try and fix it. :)

But, I've always had thoughts racing through my head. Try talking to someone. Write out your thoughts or find some sort of way to express how you think.

Yeah I know what you mean ST, I have crazy mood swings sometimes too, its fun in some ways, crap in others.

If you have a problem with the mood changes, then you do have a problem (I know its stating the obvious). If you can deal with them and their nothing strenuous then I reckon you might be alright =)
I know its easier to have a diagnosis to understand why you feel the way you do, so go to a doctor if thats what you feel is the right thing to do :hug:

Try going to a therapist. It could be simple depression, or it could be bipolar. Either way, a therapist is always a good thing when you have problems like this. :)

I feel the same... but I don't think mine's anywhere like bi-polar! It's just extremes of moods... and around certain people it happens.

I told my boyfriend and friends that I'm happy, because I am. So much happier than I've been for the past 5 years... But at the same time, there are moments when the pain is still unbearable... and I become numb again and again like before. Numb, not even raw.

If God gave me a choice, I would still choose to disappear.

Bi-polar wasn't my first assumption at all. It's rather odd that all these people are trying to diagnose you through one secret. On the other hand--I would definitely say you have a problem. If it's something serious that scares you, you should be seeking medical attention. (e.g. a psychologist).

Now... I don't want to jump to conclusion, but I was diagnosed with something similar to the sounds of your complaint. I could be totally wrong, but perhaps you can look it up out of interest. Something called Major Depression Disorder. It has its ups and downs and the downs can, obviously, be pretty bad--to the point where you're suicidal, or you feel the urge to self-medicate. This is not something you are born with, it manifests itself over time. It is treatable, and can sometimes disappear altogether. Other times, it comes and it goes as pleases.

Depending on how long you've experienced depression/mood swings there is also a possibility of a life-long depression, or even a personality or behavioral disorder that came with a side of depression. Some of the more common ones are AD/HD and ADD... both of which can be diagnosed by your doctor.

AD/HD and ADD are commonly associated with mood disorders, such as MDD, or Bi-polar etc.

Sounds like me. Sometimes I wonder whether I have some kind of illness, but then I think "why bother?". I can live with it most days...
Also, I'm afraid if I asked a psychiatrist, I'd get stigmatised with something and have to take pills... No, I wouldn't want that until it's completely necessary.

it depends on how old you are, if youre a teenager they will stop eventually (in most cases) if not you might need to se a doctor or therapist.
although these sorts of things are normal for everyone in small amounts.

I don't think you have a Bi-Polar Disorder, you actually sound like you're Manic. I know of someone who is manic and he acted like this. They had to give him mood stabilizers because he started getting worse when he acted up like that (he would get arrested).

Not really, Bi-polar is more mood swings, from depressive to a fairly happy state (to a degree) Manic is more, extreme then that. Like, a person could feel utterly nothing, and then the next moment, they can be screaming and not making sense to anyone but themselves.

I'm pretty sure that a bipolar person can, in some cases, be both manic and depressed at different times. Granted, I don't claim to know a lot about it, but that's my understanding.

But I am pretty sure that simply being manic doesn't imply bipolarity, nor the other way around. So in that respect, they are different.

They are the same. I thought I had Bi-polar for a while too, and I went through diagnostic testing... During my first session I asked the Doc if I might have Bi-polar, and she said no, so I offered, "What about Manic Depression?" to which she replied, "They're the same."

Also if you look it up, wikipedia states (in reference to bi-polar):
"also called Manic Depression--"
