Quick mood swings I associate more with Borderline Personality Disorder than bipolar. Bipolar usually has "periods" of mania and depression. Most people who are bipolar aren't that quick with the mood swings. I would look into Borderline symptoms and see if it reflects you a bit more.

yeah sounds like border line personality.
Bi-polar's more sustained it's the intensity on the mood that makes it bipolar.

Boderline personality disorder doesn't actually have many quick mood swings, our emotions tend to go up much faster than other peoples, and we feel them with much higher intensity, but they stay up a lot longer, and go down slower.

I don't know because I'm not borderline, but all the descriptions I've seen point to borderline being mood swings and bipolar just being a series of ups and downs. Like, my last depression spell was a month. And I have manic weeks. I'm quick to have outbursts and I've very sensitive, emotional, but I don't get mood swings.

Bipolar can be at an incredible intensity as well. I've almost killed myself over the smallest of things. I overreact to everything :/

Same here, it sucks, but I do have boderline. I would say that isn't bipolar, or boderline. But at the end of the day we can't diagnose you, the best thing is to see your doctor
