I may not be a psychiatrist but I have real life experience with the disease, & I was not diagnosing anyone I was asking a question. Now get back to your place.

Yep, it's easy to diagnose one self, or have others do it for you, especially with the information disseminating on the Internet,

It's a good place to learn about it and find out information, but if you think you may have the associated symptoms of some illness, the best bet is not to go onto a forum like this where people "think" you have some form of mental illness, leave that up to your GP and more often than not, a specialist to diagnose and prescribe the correct treatment.

The only advice you should be giving people is impartial advice, is that if you think you may be suffering from something, take it up with your GP/Doctor rather than worrying yourself on the internet by someone who thinks they are fricken Dr Susan Lowenstein because they have "Experienced"

No I was not being clear myself. It's true that many who struggle to sleep will crave sleeping and feel even worse...

Actually, there are a few degrees of bipolarity. It might be slight bipolarity or severe one.
You know, my mom has seen a few doctors, and she discovered about her disorder only at 40 when I already knew 4 years before... so maybe you should seek informations about different mental disorders related to depression or I don't know, because it is more and more the case nowadays. And if you are treated only for depression while you have a mental disorder, it won't fully help you.

But maybe you only suffer from a depression and you need much, much time.
When you are not in your episodes in which you feel like absolute shit etc etc (like what you described in the other post), how do you feel?

My mom is bipolar, I think I know what bipolarity is thank you very much.

Actually, I have even talked with a few psychiatrists including her personal one, and they all told me bipolarity was actually spreading in the world but most of bipolar people don't even realize it. My mom has always been bipolar, she was 40 when she found out her bipolarity.

So it was not an assessment but a possibility. I would not dare saying nufflemuts is indeed bipolar, but what nufflemutt is going through doesn't exclude the possibility of being bipolar as my mom went through similar episodes.

Cool story bro. What part of I was asking a question you didn't understand?

And anyhow considering I'm bipolar myself I think I'm more than qualified to at least recognize the symptoms, don't you think?

Re: How do you deal with depression?

not really on the topic of bipolarity but just a general thought about depression

I think the best way to cope with it is just to realise why you're depressed and address it, with the ultimate goal of becoming a better person by the end of it. Just to think of positive thoughts like things WILL DEFINITELY be much better than before. You just need to overcome the problems in your life and at the same time becoming a better person for your own sake, and for the sake of those around you.

there's no point in running away from your problems. Just gotta push through each day and think positive and make a better person out of yourself.

Wow so you got diagnosied early
And I guess you are on medication with a therapy?

Do you think bipolarity might be in the genes? My psychiatrist is convinced I am not bipolar as she thinks I am actually very stable and my depression from last year was due to a general breakdown. But apparently, it's in the genes (of course not only genes determinate your bipolarity)...

Depression always comes because you aren't satisfied with certain aspects of your life and running away really doesn't do anything. You just need to change certain aspects of yourself or aspects of your life and things will only get better.

It doesn't feel that way, I know that for a fact that things just feel shit and nothing will improve, but if you keep telling yourself that things will definitely be better than ever (and you have to BELIEVE that it'll be better than ever) I think you can slowly overcome your adversities.

In the meantime while you deal with your problems, occupy yourself, and make yourself a better person. Know why you feel this down, know whether if it's your fault or not - if it is own up to it and make yourself a better person, if it wasn't your fault just let it go.

It's just something I thought about last night and I feel like I'm coping with my problems much better than I did the previous two days.
