I'm going to make this short, because I'm supposed to be doing school right now.
Basically I'll go one or two weeks REALLY happy and energetic, that's just who I am. I'm fairly happy, optimistic, energetic, etc. However, I find myself going through week or more periods where I'm just always angry and depressed and pessimistic and hateful. It's like, unexpectedly, the next day i'll suddenly have TONS of negative emotions, whereas I usually don't have them. This has been happening for a few months (probably no less than six) and I'm in my early teens. I read online that this is what bipolar II is, because I was suspecting it. I'm not looking for a diagnosis, I'm asking if you think that I should go to the doctor about this if you think it might be bipolar type II. I have difficulty doing school during this and, naturally, I don't like feeling this way. (though I do like it when I'm happy and full of energy ;)) Thanks so much

Many people think that they may have bipolar disorder, or any kind of certain disorders (e.g. dysmorphic disorder, borderline..etc), but there are chances that they might be wrong. You're going trough a hard stage of life, you're only a teenager. You might feel like in a rollercoaster mood, personality difficulties and such, but that doesn't mean you ave a disease, it's only a small part of teenagehood. Soon you might be back to normal.
If you truly believe you may have bipolarity disorder go visit a doctor, because he know better. Don't self-diagnose yourself, or let friends/unexperienced people do it.
Good luck ^^

It definitely seems that you are having difficult mood swings, though without being doctors none of us can really diagnose you. However, you should see a doctor as there is a good chance that you could be diagnosed with something, even if it isn't necessarily Bioplar II. Good luck!

if you really think you have Bi-Polar disorder go get a Dr or Psyc opinion. most likely its just hormones.

Lots of people have Bipolar II, including me! diagnostics are truthfully not that helpful...bipolar 1, 11, or 111, all the treatments are pretty much the same and it just means your brain struggles with regulating emotions. Heres a blog that really helps me
