Am I bipolar?Wed, Jan 31st 2007
For the last three years, I\'ve been depressed and cut myself. Ive just recently began seeing a psychologist and also went to a psych. hospital. I\'m explain my everyday to my Dr. and he says I may be bipolar. My frequent moods include: from being happy but not to the extream all the way to not wanting to get out of bed, crying, and headaches and fatigue. Any little thing will irratate me and i become like this. Now, on the other hand, I may be all smiles and truely happy- but never compleatly happy. I try to hide my saddness. But my question is does it seem like I have any symptoms of Biploar Disorder?
