Unhappy it's back... - September 12th 2012, 08:58 PM

hey guys,
i have been having on and off depression for a year now and cut myself for a period of time,
now, i have been showing sign of bipolar...
such as...

A long period of feeling "high," or an overly happy or outgoing mood
Extremely irritable mood, agitation, feeling "jumpy" or "wired."
Talking very fast, jumping from one idea to another, having racing thoughts
Being easily distracted
Increasing goal-directed activities, such as taking on new projects
Being restless
Sleeping little
Having an unrealistic belief in one's abilities
Behaving impulsively and taking part in a lot of pleasurable,
high-risk behaviors, such as spending sprees, impulsive business investments.
A long period of feeling worried or empty
Loss of interest in activities once enjoyed, including sex.
Behavioral Changes
Feeling tired or "slowed down"
Having problems concentrating, remembering, and making decisions
Being restless or irritable
Changing eating, sleeping, or other habits
Thinking of death or suicide, or attempting suicide.

i found those symptoms on a hospital website and i have all of them, i dont want it to be bipolar but i am terrified that it is........

Why should you be terrified? If you do actually have BPD, surely it's better to know about it than constantly be in doubt? Now that you know, I think, you can seek treatment. Can't get treatment if you don't know the problem.

Get it checked out officially before you do anything about it, though.

Stay strong, mail me if you need anything.

Okay thankyou but what do you mean by treatment? My parents don't know about me being depressed because they don't care they dont know about the self harm either....

You can get certain types of medication to control the moods. They'll only prescribe it though if you've been clinically diagnosed.

I've lost a friend who previously had BPD. It's a nastier condition than it sounds, really messes with your head over time. Whatever you decide to do, good luck & I hope it all works out.
