I have recently been diagnosed with bipolar after been told for 9 years i had depression(c 2005-06-20). Get yourself 2 a GOOD psychiatrist or psycologist and get an answer. Don't let anyone put you off or tell you you are labelling yourself. Getting a diagnosis is an uphill battle as people are scared to put you on the medication and others look at you as if you just read about it and now are imagining it. Good luck!
