Posted Tue May 8th, 2007 5:18pm Post subject: could anyone give me a diagnosis??!!!???
could anyone help me? i would consider myself to on the boarders of bipolarity as i can feel low, however there is usually for a reason, no matter how minor. i also feel a minor mania: CONFIDENCE!! CONFEDENCE!! CONFIDENCE!! i am naturally a quiet and mature young lady with a low self esteem and low confidence levels, however when i am in my state of mania i tend to talk loudly to almost EVERYONE and am brimming with SO much confidence it is unreal for me.
i also constantly worry about how others perceive me, but when i am manic i don't really give much of a dam what ANYONE thinks of me, i am still my super nice character but i will do outrageous things if people wish or dare me to.
it is so out of character and i do sometimes wonder what possessed me to do the things that i do as i would have been too embarrassed to have done that normally. i must stress that the things i do are not too abnormal, just silly little things that require more confidence that i usually possess.
my mom said that even as a child i did not have an 'in between' i have always been either super happy or quiet and low. many people who know me have dismissed that idea of bipolarity but i thought it would help if asked you guys

thanx joy X-D

- Sounds rather Bi-Polar type II, but you would need a proper diagnosis to be sure. See your G.P. who may refer you onto a specialist.

If you are, it's best caught early - as it can be contained better if diagnosed in the early years.

Hiya English Rose Joylan - poetry slowly gathers pace here through the ructions, also the diagnostic side.

I read your post and listened for the parts which said what this person feels. It says to me someone who is seeing the world something like this at the moment -

i am naturally a quiet and mature young lady with a low self esteem and low confidence levels,
I am low on confidence

I also constantly worry about how others perceive me
Others are potentially critical

I would have been too embarrassed to have done that normally
The world is slightly scary

?So I go a bit manic/depressive in the face of all this, depending?

Reasons why someone might feel like this are manyfold. Bipolar Disorder and depression include these symptoms.Other reasons could be to do with how one sees oneself. Myself, I believe that our possibilities are limited by our genetic make up, but within that the environment - what happens - plays a very formative influence in what we experience in the moment we experience it.

No, i think it's "if you're a neurotic, paranoid, attention-desperate imbalanced nutbag.... you're probably an 18 year old girl".

well now I've been labeled everything,
i am not male nor am i middle aged and i have never been called a neurotic, paranoid, attention-desperate imbalanced nut-bag!!
crazy in a box, you are utterly spot on and i wanna say: u go girl!!
and i would like to add that i would not have interpreted my behaviour in that manner, but hey, what can u do?!
chrisb i was wondering if you are a psychologist as your interpretations of my post, i found were insightful an intelligent, thank you. X-D
i would also like to clear 1 thing up, i am in-fact 16 yrs old and not 18, however i was truly flattered by your first post, trouser material, however your second was utterly terrifying
well keep up your strange psychological analysis of me as i am finding them quite amusing when the despair has worn off

Let me just say firstly...if there is a chance that she/he is bipolar it is not helpful discarding them as a liar or a 'typical teenager'.
Lets show a little respect for people.

Also, Sweetheart, whatever you're going through must be hard for you. I understand that being 16 it's possible that it's teenage hormones however, I was very ill when I was your age and I was constantly told that there was nothing wrong with me. Now I've been diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder and Cyclothymia.

As fustrating as it may be you will have to go to your GP for a diagnosis. NEVER trust an online or 'friendly' diagnosis. We are not professionals and we cannot prescribe a diagnosis on a condition. So don't take anyones word for it here.

Even if someone online says they are a doctor...they still cannot give you a diagnosis. To be diagnosed you must have a one2one with your GP.
If your GP decides to send you to a mental health care professional it may be a while before you get an appointment. But there are things that can help you in the meantime for that. If you're feeling suicidal or down or even just worried you can always ring the samaritans 24/7 on 08457 90 90 90 if you're in the UK.

I hope you get seen to accordingly and I pray that you have no such disorder. The last thing you want at your age is to deal with this kind of pressure.
