As far as I know there isn't really a test for bipolar...so I'm a bit confused and if you could clear that up that would be great!
otherwise I don't know what to say, if you do end up being diagnosed then you're not alone, there's me and I believe a few other people who also have bipolar. The most important thing to remember is to listen to your doctors advice and take your medication always! And make sure your doctor is an actual psychiatrist and not a gp.

What are your symptoms? Just wondering because its unusual for someone as young as you to be considering bipolar by a doctor without eliminating a lot of other possibilities.

Well now they think it's my antidepressents doing it to me and PTSD.. and it was like a test and my phsyciatrist looked at the outcomes to seee if i show symptoms.
And Im very anxious and I can go to being fine to being very aggitated. And I'm in a deep depression with suicidal attempts. I look for alot of sexual atttention and can be really hyper then really tired. But I'm also having troubles holding back my anger.. like my lil sister will annoy me and i feel like i have to punch something but they think its PTSD and maybe my antidepressants.

Antidepressants can cause many of the symptoms you've described so I think your doctors know what they're talking about and I would trust what they say (but always take everything with a grain of salt)
Good luck!
