I'm not sure who diagnosed you, whether it be a doctor, friend, if you did it yourself or someone else who is not fully aware of the diagnostic criteria for the disorders you mentioned. Major depressive disorder cannot occur if you have bipolar disorder because the diagnostic criteria for major depressive episode would not be met. Part of the criteria for it specifies that there cannot be episodes of mania, hypomania, mixed episodes, etc... . Bipolar disorder, regardless of the type, requires at least one of these episodes to occur.

The one that has nothing to do with the above disorder is intermittent explosive disorder. For intermittent explosive disorder, the idea is that your anger is out of proportion with what it should be for various situations because your anger is too impulsive so you cannot control it. For example, if someone steps on a person's foot, they usually apologize and go on with their day. With this diagnosis, it means that you're more likely to confrontational at the person.
