Firstly, being so depressed that you are manic is like being depressed, so to the point where you dont want to live, so you get into a manic situation, ie: suicide. But, being manic, you get so angry and annoyed that it depresses you b/c you dont feel "normal", yet I have many definitions for that. [/b]
I do not doubt that you feel that way, but that is not what bi-polar means. People who are bi-polar often switch from a severe depression to an almost carefree manic happiness. Manic episodes and depressive episodes are rather mutually exclusive.

What you are talking about sounds alot like Major Depression
