I think labels can be useful sometimes. As far as I know, you don’t meet the ‘DSM’ criteria for bipolar. I wonder why you ask about it since you don’t experience symptoms like racing thoughts, etc. You describe periods of depression, along with periods of feeling okay. To me that doesn’t describe bipolar.Read the article.
I wonder if you can be bipolar without the “highs” they describe?
I go through periods of depression, mostly around my time of the month. Two weeks I’m ok with life, two weeks I’m down. I don’t ever experience racing thoughts or periods of high productivity. I’m never high on life and extremely happy. I’m either just ok or blue.
What do you think?
Best of luck to you. I hope today is an okay day.
