You would have to look up bipolar disorder in this website or the mayo clinic website and you will see two different types.
I have the bipolar II (hypomanic).....severely depressed.
I would recommend making an appointment with a psychiatrist or your primary doctor and tell him/her what you are feeling. That would be a good place to start if you are not feeling right about yourself.
Best of luck.....I am here if you need to chat

I finally decided to go see a doctor when I couldn't explain my moods. When I finally asked myself "why am I feeling this way" and I couldn't give myself an answer. Doctor diagnosed me with bipolar disorder. It explained my manic behaviors and my extreme depressive behavior. Meds have been helping.
