My mental health counselor has recommended that I get an evaluation from the Psychiatrist. They are thinking that I may be bipolar. I was diagnosed with severe depression, but the thinking is that maybe I was misdiagnosed. How do you know? How do you distinguish bipolar from a personality disorder or if you're behavior are something else that those two. How did you know for certain that is what it is; is it just because the doc says that's it?

hi first off I know everyone is different and a support group can’t diagnose me. I have a problem I’m not sure if I have one thing or many. So growing up I was brutally bullied in school. This sounds weird but Since about 3rd grade I kinda created a fantasy in my head, it started with me thinking I was a horse, or a lion, then as I got older it was stuff like I’m a famous musician, actor....
And the rollercoaster continues. Bipolar type 2 is so exhausting. Thursday I was beyond maniac it was absolutely amazing I love being maniac. Then the crash. The severe depression. The loneliness that grows and overwhelms everything. And then for a few hours back up I felt great. Now back down with a crash. I feel like a black hole. All empty. Idk. Goodbye I guess.
