Derpology 101

Not trying to be a know-it-all bitch, but let's get something straight:

Living with Bipolar Disorder doesn't necessarily mean you're happy and loving one second and pissed and violent the next. It means your moods cycle (sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly), usually from DEPRESSIVE to MANIC.

In a low, DEPRESSED state, you sleep a lot, cry a lot, feel really low for no apparent reason, and begin to hate everything about life.

In a MANIC state, you can go days without sleep. There's thousands of thoughts racing through your mind at any given moment. You'll make rash decisions and enjoy gambling and living on the edge. You want to work on tons of different projects at once, sing, whistle, dance, play. You excel at work and appear almost as if you're on crack constantly.

Some people with bipolar lose touch with reality completely and experience excessive grandiose thoughts with delusions and full-blown hallucinations.

So, let's cut to the chase: if you're kinda happy at 2:00 PM and sad and angsty at 2:25 PM, you're probably just an emotional teenager or a hormonal adult. You may have a much less severe form of bipolar, or perhaps even Cyclothymia, but chances are, you're not suffering from full blown Bipolar Disorder, neither BI nor BII. I'm not saying that you must fit my examples perfectly to be bipolar, because everyone experiences disorders differently. But don't jump to conclusions because your moods change. See a doctor or a psychologist.

I really do apologize if you felt I was berating you or bitching. Just trying to broaden a few perspectives.

Oh, I wasn't bitching at all. I'm not looking for any explanations, either. I'm just saying, you're practically begging to have a psychological disorder which is nothing to be content with.

Really? I don't believe I know you personally, so I doubt I am that person, unless you enjoy stalking perfect strangers. But creeping IS pretty fun.

"This medicine stuff" could be for anything, yes? ADD, perhaps? It's rare for a regular family physician to prescribe medication for bipolar to a TWELVE year-old. Derp. What kind of a quack are you seeing?

EmotionalChan: My opinion? You're 12 years old. You're just a hyper kid who's dealing with puberty-related mood swings. Wait a little while and see how your emotions change by the time you're 20.
