A self diagnosis will not be of any help to you. If you believe you may be suffering with bipolar disorder it is time to make an appointment to see your doctor and ask for a referral to a psychiatrist. A psychiatrist will be able to properly diagnose you and get the proper treatements started. I would look into councelling as well. It helps to combine the medications with theropy, both individual and treatement. I wish you all the best.
