I'm afraid I have bipolar, my mother and three of her five siblings have been diagnosed with it, I'm sixteen and have been a stable carer for my mother but she's always told me I am the most like her. I suffer from depression which I would describe as quite manic at times, I can go from upbeat and lively to depressed and sunken. Although my mood swings are nothing like my mothers, and my mind isn't absent to what is normal and what's not, I recognise that I am not well in one sense or another.
Hi, does anyone know how to convince someone to seek help for his mental state? My friend insists there is nothing wrong with him however his mood swings are extreme and he gets very angry. His mother has bipolar and I believe it can be hereditary... he can be really angry one minute and laughing manically at something on the TV five minutes later. It's really odd...
