Q. every alternate day i go through a swift mood change from a very high depression.

I am facing some problem and I need help. Every alternate day I go through a swift mood change from a very high depression on one day to a high happiness on the other day. It remains constant for couple of days and then again my mood swings either to a high depression or to a good level happiness. When in happy mood I feel on top. When I feel very depressed I start harming myself and it goes to the extent to bang my head on the wall. Many times I will cry so much that the very next day my eyes burns with irritation and pain. Is all this normal? I think I am getting bipolar.
A1I would suggest going to your doctor and asking to speak to someone. Perhaps start with a theropist so you will have someone to talk to and can teach you to manage your stress. If you are experiencing bipolar episodes the theropist may be able to recognize the symptoms and suggest you see a psychiatrist as well. Try not to self diagnose yourself, tell your doctor that you have been having some hard times and would like someone to talk to and go from there. I wish you well.
A2No, you are not a bipolar. It may due the stress of your day to day to life. In a bipolar person the mood swings are very severe and it lasts long. Whereas your mood change is not long lasting and thus you might be having some day to day life stress. You must introspect to find the flow of your feeling and check them with your will. If these mood changes continue for a long time then you must meet a doctor or a psychologist to help you find solutions.
