You could be: From your description here, you could be bipolar -- but you need a thorough evaluation with a psychiatrist for a diagnosis. It will be important to share any history of drug or substance use as well. Then you and the doctor can work together on a treatment plan so you don't suffer like this. Start with a general health exam with your primary care doctor, but psychiatry consult is also needed.
