deep depression, then everything seems really amazing

Sometimes I fall really deep into depression and I find myself wanting to die or just not exist. Or sometimes I just become extremely sad and I just cry and cry and pull at my hair, but then sometimes I become really happy and hyper. I begin to talk really fast and everything seems really amazing and the world just glows and I become very self confident. I don't know if this is Bipolar disorder or if I am simply young and have rapid mood swings.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and would like to help

Such mood swings can be due to bipolar disorder, and it should be ruled out.
Kindly get psych evaluation.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
