Thanks everybody, I am just confused with the state I am in. I don't know if I should just deal with the mood swings and hope they go away because it scares me to think I would have to be taking such powerful medication like that everyday. Also I don't want it to have to change my life from how it is now really either. When I am at work, school, or in public situations is when I notice the swings the most, but I never really remember anyone telling me I seemed bi polar at all. My major issue is I really want a job again and to go back to school but when I work or have to sit in a seat for a long time in a lecture, or in a public setting, I get extremely worked up. Were I am going really fast and just trying my best to focus on getting out of there as fast as possible. That is usually when I accidentally say things that may be mean to people or get agitated with my self. I usually realize later that what I said was probably not the best way to about talking about it. Then other days I feel as if it is such a chore and or is so boring to have to be doing things like I would rather be doing anything else, like sleeping, than just doing the same job or the same class again. This is usually when I either feel really sick to my stomach or even sometimes just say I feel sick to get out of doing things.
Bipolar Disorder - How do I decide if my Bi Polar tendencies are severe enough to talk to my doctor?

Also I really don't like talking in person with anybody about these feelings I always just try and cope by drinking or exercising a lot, I started smoking cigarettes a little bit which I never thought I would. Also I have spent a lot of my money on weed even though I really never have had very much money at all to spend.
Is this a self-diagnosis? If it is I would encourage you to get an official assessment, it will aid in your well being to know for sure, as then there are many treatment regimens from which to benefit. If it is a diagnosis from a Dr, then yes, peak with that Dr further about your concerns. Best. Hope ti helps.
Hello again qwertyuiopasdfghjkl,
I suggest you make an appoinment with a Psychiatrist and express what you feel and let him / her know about your conducts as you have done here. I as I mentioned before, I suffer from bipolar disorder and I am more manic than depressive, it has no cure, but with the right medications I lead a "normal" life.
