Suggest treatment for bipolar depression

i feel like i am having a bipolar depression. My mood swings every know and then. sometimes i overspend and sometimes dont spend at all. I am always confused and mostly when depressed, dont have courage to do any work, cant even get up from bed, make silly excuses, and think of the worst that can happen. sometimes i feel all persons are very good and sometimes feel all are enemies. Many times i get angry to quit job and at other times dont understand how such feelings come to me. I cant get serious when i need to and feel too nervous/tensed at silly things.

I feel this condition has had a major impact on my life till now and if not rectified can cause many further problems in my future.

I am totally confused what to do - any assistance would be greatly appreciated ..

hi..thanks for writing..

symptoms you have described are very interesting and also found in the bipolar depression..bipolar depression has alternate episodes of depression and hypomania..here what you have described is rapidly changing mood and fluctuation within days and week even..

you have insight in your problems is very good sign..it can be bipolar depression..but here i would say that it can be your personality problem..

similar mood fluctuations, opposite feeling for the same thing at same or different time can be a part of borderline personality disorder, i am not saying you have this but you shud read about it..and you feel that it can be like this, you shud go to psychiatrist and ask for detail evaluation and diagnosis..

if it is not severe and symptoms are mild then it can be named as personality traits..

symptoms must be present from he childhood or adolescence before 18 years..

if these symptoms are bothering you so much, you shud undergo evaluation, there are drugs that can help you..i cant suggest drugs before the confirm diagnosis..

i hope this advice will be helpful to you..best of luck..
