Depends. What symptoms do you think you have?

If you go to a psychiatrist or other doctor about this, they'll be concerned about your age. It's known that hormones exaggerate behaviours a lot so depending on what you're experiencing, it may be written off as simple teenage behaviours.

Please do not look up the symptoms or have your mother do this in order to amateurly diagnose you. It happens very often and it very often just creates problems. Looking at the symptoms only is not how you properly diagnose, you must look at the diagnostic criteria and have some knowledge of psychological theories. With bipolar disorder, there's different types of bipolar disorder also, which further complicates matters.

You haven't listed any symptoms nor the severities so it's impossible to know anything at this point because you've given no information.

Well I recently diagnosed to bi-polar. Half of my friends don't think I am but the rest do. My doctor kept me on a mood chart everday and noticed that I have a lot of mood swings. In one day I will go from being happy to sad, then to being angry for no reason and back to being happy or even really hyper. Just the other day I was really cheerful but by midday I was really tired and depressed. I am on Prozac for Depression by emedoutlet and its giving me a good result too.

Describe your Happy moments, and be as specific as you can. Mild Depression has Happy to Depressed fluctuations, its a bit different for Bipolar.

Well it sounds like you could possibly be abit Bi Polar, but i wouldnt nessisarily just the gun on it yet, cause alot of people get mixed up with Bi Polar and just plain life and being human and having emotions. I'd give it some more time but also i would go visit a doctor and let him know and ask him some question about it and see what their opinions are. But don't just go to one doctor, alot of doctors i find try and jump the gun on prescribing pills when there not needed, so i would go and see at least 2 or 3 and see what the general concenses is and then from there you will be able to make a better decision on what you want to do about it (that is if there is anything that needs doing that is)

Okay, but moodswings can accommodate normal Depression. You CAN go from Sad to Happy when you have Mild Depression.

Mania (the part that makes Bipolar, well, "Manic Depression") is more than just being happy, bubbly, etc. and I don't know how to describe it best. Can you explain your overall behaviours during the happy moments?

Hey,

It depends on what symptoms you have, but maybe best to go to a doc or to a professional...
