I don't have bipolar but I suggest you read this thread:
http://www.virtualteen.org/forums/showthread.php?t=13605

It explains the basics of the disorder. Doctors can be so shit at diagnosing mental health problems. They barely understand them. My best friend was being shoved with all sorts of labels from schizophrenic to bipolar to depressive and psychotic, it's stressful and fucks everyone around but in the end if they get it right then I guess it's worth it. At least you should start getting the right treatment for what you have.

I hope the link helps.

You really need to see a psychologist.
Doctors aren't really qualified to make those kinds of diagnosis.
A lot of times they will dx based on what kinds of pills they want
you on so they can get kickbacks.
