Default Maybe Bipolar?

I've been starting to think like In bipolar. It runs in my family so I wouldn't be the first person with it (My mother and both my sisters have it).
Lets start with the things that resemble manic symptoms (More like hypomanic, most of these symptoms are present throughout the entire thing):
-Go days (1-3) without sleep without tiring
-Intense paranoia
-Racing thoughts
-fast and loud speech
-Really over the top self image
-Do lots of work (Waaay more than normal but I usually get distracted and work on lots of different things)
-More ideas than normal (more than I can actually do)
-Symptoms usually last about 1-2 weeks

Now for some of the depressive parts:
-Lasts between 1 week and 6 months
-Sense of numbness (things seem grey and boring, no more enjoyment in life)
-Self loathing
-Suicidal thoughts
-weight gain
-Self Mutilation (Kinda) (Not sure if it really counts, It usually comes out as a fit of rage where I Completely zone out and hit myself)
So what do you think I should do? Does it seem like I meet the criteria for bipolar? Thanks for any feedback

P.s: I also have anxiety issues and ADHD
