I was wondering if anyone could help put their two cents in with what they think I might have, if anything at all.

I am seventeen years old and often find myself feeling very depressed, lonely and often have anxiety issues. Though I am often glum, but I have noticed that certain people trigger an excitable, eager good mood.

I always act kindly and do not usually let on that I am depressed, most people would never know since I am usually very cheerful. Only my closest friends are aware. It seems like I am only truly cheerful though around certain people, like they pipe up a genuine energy level in me.

I thought this was just me being happy to see friends, but I am wondering if it could tie to any form of mania?

Also, I've always had rushed, cluttered speech. I always explained this to me just being a marble-mouth, but I've read that this can also be tied to mania.

I appreciate everyone's opinions and help!

i can often be down in the dumps and i meet someone and feel much better and happy. the effect can sometimes last long after they have gone sometimes not. i wouldnt say it was necessarily a symptom of bipolar. im not sure tho. have you ever spoke to the doc??

No, I haven't. I don't think I would be bi-polar though, just some sort of mania. It is extremely rare for me to lose my temper or to get angry and I am not at all reckless.

It sounds as though you are at that awkward age when you haven't decided which direction to take in your life. Are you working or unemployed?
If the latter have you any particular hobby that would occupy you?
If your moods persist i should ask yout G.P. for advice.

I am not currently working or employed, but I am pretty set on what I want to major in and what college I want to attend, so I am not sure that that is the problem.

Also, I'm sorry, but what is a G.P.?

hi

deppression or bipolar both are controlable, with proper medicine and proper thinking, which only doctor can tell you. but you must have patience and make efforts to change your irrational thinking. have patience and make effforts to change yourself
