I stumbled across this website whilst sat in my room researching even more into bipolar, trying to figure out why i feel like i do.

I have not yet sought professional advice as to my bipolar issues. I am 19, since the age of 14 have had depersonalization, and over last year and a half to 2 years have been developing increasing number of "symptoms" of bipolar. a year and a half ago when i discovered what bipolar was i thought it sounded like what was affecting me.

I never believed i would have it though so ignored it until late last year when it worsened and now all these feelings and moods are something i live with on a daily basis. Upon much research and help from a certain wonderful girl i realised that i fit all criteria for bipolar. i know i need professional advice and diagnosis but i think im actually scared to.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

It's not a good idea to diagnose yourself, particularly as bipolar rarely affects someone as young as you and that moods are greatly affected by hormones. You could actually be worrying over something that doesn't exist.

You really should see your GP first and talk to him or her to see if you do actually need a psychiatric referral. A psychiatrist is the only person who can make a diagnosis.

Meanwhile keep posting.

Hi Nayfish,

Welcome to the group. I hope you can make yourself at home here and that we can help with your journey.

Dollit is right that you should see your GP and get a referral to a psychiatrist. I know this is a huge step. But you'll get help that way and hopefully feel a better along the track. Most importantly, you need to know what you're really dealing with here.

Let us know how you go.

No I am not happy with your proposal.

This is a forum specifically for people with mental health issues which includes eating disorders not a place for people to peddle their goods.

If there is a direct correlation to discussion of our mental health and wellbeing. But not using the forum as a marketplace.

What was your intention?

Cleo there's no point in asking the poster questions when they've been banned as they can't answer!
