YOu would need to be evaultauted by a proffesional. There are list of things they look for and things they don't andthey take into consideration things like any health problems you could have that cause symptoms to make you appear to have osmething else. That is the only way you can truely know and be diagnosed. You may have some symptoms listed but most symptoms of one things is closely linked to others so it can be easily misdiagnosed if we do so ourselves.

Hi,

We cannot tell you how you would know because we are not professionals and only a professional can give you this information.
Try talking to a counselor, psychologist or your doctor so you can be refered to someone that can diagnose you.
As the above poster mentioned, there are many symptoms of disorders/conditions that are very similar so you will need to get a diagnosis from a psychologist so that you can get any proper treatment for what you are going through.
Hope this is helpful and I am here if you ever need someone to talk to.

You can look up symptoms of bipolar disorder on google if you suspect it, but the only real way to be certain is to go in to see a doctor, counsellor, psychiatrist or psychologist to go through the process of finding out for sure. They'll do a phsychological assessment and rule out other disorders/diagnoses in the process.
