Depression or Bipolar?

    Since the age of 15, I've had a feeling of emptiness inside me. At that age I began to be interested in love and sex, which has lead me to numerous complications within my friendships and other relationships. I feel dependent on having a relationship for happiness, but I always end it once I lose the slightest bit of interest and find the littlest problem. Sometimes I cry myself to sleep, when I think about anything upsetting from my past or anyone says a certain thing I become triggered and feel like crying, but I never cry in front of people. I usually go from being content and happy to seeing something that triggers me and instantly fall into a depressed state. I feel alone and lost, and nothing makes me happy anymore. Its not unusual for me to go from being happy and carefree one day, to completely ignoring everyone and hiding in my room, to be full of rage and crying my eyes out the next. I've also looked up the symptoms for bipolar disorder and I see a lot of those symptoms in me but I could be misdiagnosing myself.

    don't let people tell you there are things wrong with you. for future references. your emotions are valid. if you are eventually diagnosed, try viewing it in different perspectives. always willing to lend an ear, best of luck -JDM
