I want to know if i have bi polar. I''m up and down in my moods all the time, o can be ok one minute then the next i flip out for the slightest thing. I''m very impatient and if i have to wait a long time for something i start to get moody and aggressive. If im driving and the slightest thing annoys me i start driving recklessly and i can feel my blood boil and shake and get angry. I spend money i havent got. I have totally gone off sex with my partner but put that down to losing my libido after having my daughter, but could this be because of my depression. I feel worthless, very paranoid and just generally really down in the dumps, i have never attempted suicide but have wished i was dead alot. Please help mei want to enjoy my life as i''m only 23

It looks like you have described text book symptoms associated with bipolar disorder.

But it is not possible to make a diagnosis online as in most cases, even normal stress can induce people to act out and have such symptoms.

It would be best that you consult with a psychiatrist and undergo proper counselling and this may help to provide you the help you need.

I hope this helps.
