uhh why am I like this? - June 26th 2012, 09:47 AM

sorry if this isn't a right place but anyways....

Yesterday I woke up at 9:45 am and still up like it's 5 am today. My mind is racing like I could write more than 4 poems an hour. It it's like I'm so happy and hyper right now. I don't know how long this last cuz if it last like a couple days then I would get depressed for a couple days and it repeats. But wow I feel great right now even though I am still up. To be honest I can't sleep at all!

We can't diagnose you, so your best bet would be to see your regular doctor about this in order to rule out possible medical conditions (on a side note, are you taking any medications and/or drugs, legal or illegal?). After that, you could ask your doctor to refer you to a psychological professional for further assessment. What you're describing sounds like alternating manic and depressive phases, which is characteristic for bipolar disorder; however, you wouldn't alternate between phases this rapidly, so we can't assume that's what's going on. You really do need to see both a medical and psychological professional in order to answer your question.

I'm sorry if I scared you! Honestly, it could be nothing. This might just be "teenage hormones." Other people tend to get bursts of energy/motivation, then they burn out and feel a little depressed afterward because they're not accomplishing as much. Is that a typical pattern for you, or did this start recently?

Your moods are changing rapidly, but you're also 15 and have crazy hormones. Your mood swings and changes in energy? Easily explained by life as a teenager, pretty much. As someone who has Bipolar Disorder, I don't think your mood swings sound too abnormal, especially considering the duration of the symptoms.

Honestly, you don't seem to be causing any harm to yourself or others. If this changes, whether you're in an UP mood or a DOWN mood, either way any harm (whether hurting yourself or others, or other types of damage) shouldn't be taken lightly. If you're concerned, talk to your GP.
