Follow-up: I spend the whole day talking slow and have mood swings. Could this be bipolar disorder? 56 minutes later
I have a concern that I could possibly be bipolar. I have been having mood changes since i was 13. For months I will be wild and crazy and do things I really dont mean without even realizing what I am doing. The worst thing I have done was steel almost 5000 dollars from my parents. I throw stuff at people. I stay up very late at night (sometimes until almost 5am). I did this even when I was little. When I was younger I used to have "dance parties" by myself in my room which my family couldnt hear because my room is above the garage. I still stay up and I dont get tired at all. I then wake up at around 630 without being tired all day. For those months I also talk very very fast and act totally crazy. I also get very easily distracted. Then after that the next few months I will randomly completely change. I will be walking around like a zombie half sleeping through the whole day. I will sleep a full 8-10 hours but wake up and still have a need to sleep. I spend the whole day talking slow or hardly at all and get mad if someone does the slightest thing to piss me I will get super mad. I get sevier panic attacks. I went to the hospital a few times because they were so bad. I start cutting. Become belemic. And sometimes feel like I want to kill myself. Then randomly after a few months I go back to being crazy. Do you think this is bipolar disorder?
