Hi, I've been questioning whether or not im bipolar for quite a while now, I've looked up the characteristics of it and, personally I think I fit them pretty well.. But I dot want to self diagnose and I'm too scared to talk to a doctor or something. Recently I've been extremely depressed and I just feel hollow and useless, I'm seeing fewer and fewer reasons to keep going and it's exhausting to live with. It seems like I go through this sort of feeling every month or two, and when I don't feel like this I feel super manic and paranoid and I can get super easily irritated. Sorry this post is long and I don't really know what I want out of it.. Support? A diagnosis?. I just want to stop feeling this way.
