I'm not sure what you mean about the whole trans thing, since it doesnt take away nor give you confidence in a sense.

However, my boyfriend can easily pass exams without revision, he takes things in so easily that there is little need for it, its his way of learning. Whereas I spend weeks writing out things and going over notes. Everyone is different.

Maybe the overconfidence is part of being bi-polar, were you always like this? Also I'd probably just check with a doctor too

To be honest, I don't think you have Bipolar. We discussed this before in chat though. However, you may want to do some more research into "Histrionic Personality Disorder". I don't know about your romantic nature, but the over-confidence, obsession with physical appearance (dressing as a girl, perhaps could account for that..?) and the shift in romantic interests (maybe explaining the Trans/Non-Trans feelings you expressed before), along with yes, mood swings.

Bipolar is a different set of moodswings than you've described, thus why I'm skeptical of that diagnosis. I'm not 100% sure about how you actually are, though.

Nobody's calling you an attention seeker. I guess the other poster is trying to say is, have you been diagnosed as bi-polar as things are not always what they seem. It could be part of something else.

I agree you have to be confident in order to pull off wearing girls clothes and I applaud you for doing that. Although maybe its more of your way of trying to be accepted as who you are. Overconfident = trying too hard to be accepted? Just a thought?

Thats what I meant, but i said it in a weird way. Maybe just try and relax a little bit, if you see that things are ok, then maybe things will settle down?

Try to relax, and be with people who accept you. If you're in a comfortable environment then you might feel better about yourself

No. I was implying that since you don't seem to have the symptoms of Bipolar's moodswings (from what you've said), but rather different moodswings, that it may be something thats NOT Bipolar. And Histrionic Personality Disorder has some similarities, but some differences as well.

So YOU said you seek attention. Don't take offense when someone suggests something where one of the symptoms can involve attention-seeking. If I wanted to call you an attention-whore, I would've done such before.

You know what youre just ahh DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH IT OFFENDS ME? to suggest i would put myself in these negative situations FOR ATTENTION?
that i would go against my perants for it? or have tried to kill myself for it?

Just i get called an attention seeker everyday because i wear girls clohes of act diffrent. its upseting. and my moods can change manyways, i can be happy sad, or sure of somthing then not. but thats called 'flight of fancy' ill think oo his sounds good for aday then itll go, like my problems change with my mood to. and in that mood those problems are all that concern me. its not that im attetnion seeking

Can you stop twisting things round. Thats not what they said. Although you said you are one, so its a bit hypocritical to take offence. All that was said is that they don't think you are bi-polar, but there are other things that could be the reason to the mood swings.

Is bi-polar self-diagnosed or by a doctor?

I never said you were doing anything for attention. And you know what? Either read my posts thoroughly before you respond, or don't respond. Oh, and when were you diagnosed Bipolar, anyways? This may also help people help you.
