Our expert says:
ALL psyhiatric diagnoses these days ought to be made according to internationally recognized criteria, usually the DSM ( the Diagnostic & Statistical manual iof the American Psychiatric Association ) and you can google for these criteria.). The only way to get a good diiagnosis is to see a good specialist shrink for a full assessment, and then a discussion of diagnosis ( if any ) and recommended treatment ( if any).
Low self esteem and low confidence are NOt at all symptoms of Bipolar Disorder, and can exist, for their own reasons, with ANY disorder or none. They usually respond well to CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ), a well-proven form of talking therapy, and don't respond usefully to any form of medication. Mood swings certainly occur in Bipolar Disorder, but are usually severe / extreme and relatively slow, and autonomous --- if your mood sings up and down in response to external events, and within a single day, its almost vertainly NOT due to Bipolar Disorder.
There is no blood tyest or other test, other than a careful assessment by a shrink.
