Self medicate..... you know you want to.
For those that fight for it, life has a flavour that the sheltered will never know.

With bipolar disorder, happy and angry usually go hand in hand because they are energetic emotions, whereas depression is a more lethargic emotion. Do you notice yourself getting mad when you're happy?

Amy, if I converted correctly that is only 80 US bucks. That seems cheap to me.

Oh did that make me smile. :) I am still playing that game. I really luv the written exams they give me about once a year.

Pink if you are in school there must be someone you can talk too. If not cough up the money and go see a shrink. It may be the best money you ever spend. Quit worrying so much !!! Just live day to day.

my fucking mouse keeps winking in and out of existence ... driving me crazy.

Does it have to feature rapid and destructive mood swings? What about frequent extreme highs (laughing, going crazy, hyperventilating) and lows (hating self, contemplating suicide), separated by periods of teetering neutrality (usually the default mood when on the computer, which is 90% of the time; one extreme or the other might be favored if I weren't on the computer)? I've always kind of wondered if manic depressive or some related condition affected me, but if dramatic mood swings are a requirement, I can't really say that applies to me.

I decided a while back that I'm bipolar. No diagnosis or anything, the mood swings were just getting a leeetle out of hand, even for a teenage girl. I'm not sure that i have it. The only thing I am sure of is that I'm a hyperchondriac. But still, not sure if this is worth persuing with a doctor perhaps. How angsty does one need to be for it to move from teenager to actual problem?

i REALLY don't trust that self-diagnosis. get tested by someone with a proper medical degree, don't proclaim yourself this or that.


The bipolars I have known refuse to admit it after diagnosis.

I was diagnosed, and I admit that I was diagnosed. I don't take my prescription. I have a bottle of about 100 perfectly good Prozac capsules sitting on my dresser, and it's been there for about a year.

voly, that a good movie?

aug, another problem is that a lot of them say "yes i'm bipolar, but i can control it and am master of that part of me", in effect completely missing the point of the whole thing.

Quoted For Truth

I googled it.

And Voly summed it up better then I did. I'd just add it's a wait two more years and watch it on Comedy Central so you don't even waste the money buying it.

With Netflix, the only thing you're spending is time, you've already paid for all the movies.

Not always rapid, if you were constantly rapidly changing moods it would more likely be ADHD. Also, when I say destructive, making crazy impulsive decisions because you feel like nothing can harm you and planning suicide (contemplating doesn't really mean anything) would count. Being in a neutral mood 90% of the time sounds awfully...neutral, though, and if you rarely ever have dramatic mood swings, I don't know why you'd think you were bipolar.

I was about to say I'm much too logical a person to do anything impulsively, but then I remembered my unbridled kleptomania and vandalism, which occurs when I'm feeling "up." Still, I do have at least some degree of self control.

Being in a neutral mood 90% of the time sounds awfully...neutral, though, and if you rarely ever have dramatic mood swings, I don't know why you'd think you were bipolar.


Just the unusual extremity and polarity of my moods, when I have them, is all, I guess.

Also, when I'm neutral, it's less true neutrality and more conditional pacification (the condition being distraction, in this case through the computer). I get extremely irritable when someone (usually my dad) tries to talk to me when I'm in a mood I would call "neutral."

Those are hormones. They go away with a few more years.

I did the same thing up until a few months ago. Constantly back and forth since I was 11 or 12. Or just completely apathetic. Etc. I don't know him in person so I can't know for sure. But it'll probably change with time.

is it possible to be bipolar only going from anger to depression? :?

i'm a lot like anarch in that i find neutrality in distraction. i am quite sure that without it i would go completely insane with rage.

:lol: of course not. The reason its also called manic depression is because you have to be manic as well as depressed. You appear to be confusing Bipolar disorder with teenage angst :P

Not so. The manic phase can be either anger or happiness, that's another part of it. They're both energetic moods, whereas depression is a lethargic mood. Least, that's how my shrink told it to me.

But you shouldn't be able to distract yourself from it if you have it.
