Unhappy I'm not sure how to bring it up

Hi, first of all thanks for taking the time to read this.

I think I have bipolar disorder; sometimes I'll be very happy and laughing constantly - it's like there's nothing to care about but then, just a little later, I'll feel really awful. Doing any simple job will suddenly be a task equivalent to climbing a mountain and I'll just end up tuning out and leaving myself to be with my suddenly depressing thoughts. Things that used to amuse me no longer do, except for a couple things which I find myself doing a lot more often in a desperate attempt to make myself sane.

Based on all of this, I think I have bipolar disorder but I'm not sure how to bring it up with my parents. We live in the UK, so money isn't a problem as healthcare over here is free but I have no idea how to ask to go for a diagnosis; it just feels so embarrassing.

All help is appreciated and again thanks for reading all of that - it-s come out a little longer than I expected
