I am currently a sixth form student hoping to go on to do nursing next year. However, recently severe anxiety (which I have had for about 3 years) and now extreme mood swings are getting in the way of my normal life. I am worried that these 'mood swings' are signs of bipolar disorder. I feel like my anxiety and frequent panic attacks, that I was previously put on medication for has caused me slowly over time to become depressed and for me to feel very numb and worthless. But more recently in the last couple of months I have become much more manic. I am acting more 'hyper' and feel like I can't concentrate on anything for no apparent reason. I have been told of by my teachers because of this now and feel it is also starting to affect me at my job. The main reason I am choosing to post this on here is that I don't know what to do. Usually, I would seek advice from my gp but am really worried that if I do have bipolar then it could get in the way for my plans to get to university. Any advice?
