Bipolar disorder is also called bipolar disease or manic depression. but you must be informed that these symptoms always are available with other type of mental disorders like schizophrenia, ADHD, BPD etc. Psychiatrists rely heavily on differential diagnosis. Therefore consult a psychiatrist for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Dear
Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your details. I suggest you not to worry much. Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks. Symptoms of bipolar disorder are severe. They are different from the normal ups and downs that everyone goes through from time to time. Therefore, I doubt bi-polar in Krissys case. Disappointment which arises out of unforeseen life events do bring such symptoms like sadness, irritation, anger, lethargy, lack of interest, lack of appetite etc.
