Unhappy Bi-polar? - June 16th 2010, 03:36 AM

If you can think of a better place for this feel free to move it, i can't think of a better place though.

I think I'm bi-polar..
With absolutely no cause i go from happy, to depressed.. and sometimes i just cant feel anything. sometimes this happens within minutes,
sometimes hours, sometimes the phases can last days at a time.
I'm not sure what to do.
I'm scared to talk to my doctor about it because it seems like all doctors ever want to do is put you on some medication, whether or not it actually works.
But i'm also afraid that it's affecting my life because i often separate myself from friends/family when i fall into a depression phase..
Can anyone give me any advice on what to do?
I need help.. but I dont know where to look, dont know what to ask..
-Please and Thanks-




There comes a time in your life when you realize that eventually everyone in your life will hurt you, you just have to decide who is worth the pain!

Mood swings don't indicate bipolar disorder.
The mood swings in bipolar disorder are not going from happy to depressed. If it's affecting your life in a negative way then go to the doctor. If you refuse to go to the doctor then there's no way for anybody to help you.

Yeah, possible mental illnesses aren't really something you can sort out on a message board.

As LaFin said, moodswings in themselves don't indicate Bipolar. In fact, moodswings where you get depression, then go happy, can be, well, Mild Depression, even.

Going to a doctor would be your best bet.

Counseling is an option to consider if you don't want medication. Considering today's population is overmedicated anyways, counseling is a good choice.
