Of course, no one here is an expert so I strongly suggest you contact a professional in your local area regarding these feelings you are having.

Can you further describe these episodes of Anger? Angry episodes CAN occur in Bipolar Disorder, but there are also other symptoms that go along with it.

BUT, keep in mind that episodes of Anger, and episodes of Depression, can just be Depression. Thus why, as I said, it'd help if you'd describe your angry episodes (How long they last, how you feel overall, etc.) to give us a better idea of whether your concerns are founded or not.

Dare to be Different, to be Weird, to be a Freak.
Overall, Dare to be yourself.

I don't mean to sound patronizing, but you're 13. Around that age, everyone's hormones start acting up and people act "out of character" compared to how they're used to acting. If your anger is severe (i.e, fighting, getting in trouble with school/police) or if you depression is also severe (i.e, suicidal thoughts, self-destructive behaviors) and they are interfering with your everyday life, then I would recommend professional help.

when you love and laugh abundantly you live a beautiful life.
