I know it might sound stupid… well, it does sound stupid, but I’m not sure if I am actually bipolar or if I am just a typical teen, with typical mood swings. My friends and I were talking and for once, I actually opened up, explained my moods, and the thoughts that run through my head while in a mood, etc. According to them, it isn’t the standard mood swings. In fact, they were quite shocked/worried about it.

Anyway, in a lesson, we were on the computers and they decided to research it for me. Eventually they concluded that I’m bipolar. It kind of started off to be a joke & stuff, but then became a serious thing. I ended up taking various online “bipolar tests,” and all of them came out as having a “very high” chance of being bipolar.

My friends keep saying I should talk to my mum about it, but I’m not one to “open up” about things usually. Then they said that I should go to see the doctor, because my mum doesn’t have to know & it can be kept private and confidential. But, what am I supposed to do? Go there and be like “Hi, I think I’m bipolar”?!?! It’s just stupid

  1. No it’s not hun. You need to talk with your mom and she needs to help you get a psychiatrist through your family doctor. There are excellent medications for all of your symptoms that will make you feel a whole lot better. The earlier you get treated the better the results and the less medication you’ll have to take in the long run.
    This is a very common problem and the doctor won’t be surprised at all. That’s his job to help people like them get diagnosed and treated. You deserve to get the best care possible! Take care!
