Q. I suspect that I may have Bipolar. I have not consulted with anyone so far. I am confused. I am suffering from emotional stress for quite some time and I realized that things are going out of my control. I suspect that I may have Bipolar. I have not consulted with anyone so far but I would like to know am I a bipolar?

A. Dagmar is right it will do you no good to self diagnose yourself. Go to your doctor and talk to the doctor about how you have been feeling, your doctor should test you for a proper diagnosis.

Q. We have not consulted a physician yet. I need some guidance and suggestion. My mom aged 54 is under depression for the past 4 years. Often she gets angry for unwanted issues and is alone. Is this due to age factor? We have not consulted a physician yet. I need some guidance and suggestion.

A. Hi, Anger is an emotional outcome as young one too gets angry for silly issues. This has nothing to do with the age rather maturity goes with the age. As your mom is getting older, she could have been affected psychologically. May be you need to spend quality time with your mom and engage her in spiritual or other activities of her interest? According to the National Institutes of Health, out of 35 million people aged 65 or above, about 2.5 million suffer from full-blow depression and 5 million suffer from less severe forms of depression.
