:what::what:My friend who is female and 13 thinks she is bipolar. I honestly think not but can you describe this for me? She sometimes kinda flips out (rarely). But she also is really depressed some days. Is she? If so what should i do?
-p.s. we arent really close friends.

:what:

It could just be hormones. Age 13 is a common age for mood swings, and your description makes it seem infrequent.

Bipolar disorder is rarer at her age; usually the symptoms kick in later. But it's not impossible. Judging by your description she's just experiencing normal teenage emotions.
I think this website is really thorough in explaining everything there is to know about bipolar disorder, and it even gives signs to look out for if you suspect your friend may be bipolar. http://m.helpguide.org/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.helpguide.org%2Fmental%2Fbipolar_disorder_symptoms_treatme nt.htm#2591
