Unhappy Not knowing who, or what I am...?

Not sure where to post this, so I'll just give it my best shot here.

For as long as I can remember, I've had the problem that depending on the situation, I'll respond to things very differently. For instance, sometimes I'll be friendly, but sometimes I'll be very detached to people, or even cold.

Sometimes I'm very calm and loving, but sometimes I'm very aggressive, and irritated.

I feel like I don't know who or what I am, that I have some sort of dynamic personality. It really bugs me, because I want to feel like a person. But I don't.

I guess this is the only way I can sum this up, without it being a whole biography of my life.

Does anyone else experience something similar? It's making me want to pull my hair out in frustration sometimes... I'm really worried.

No problem, I forgot to say that you should talk to some friends for help. If it doesnt get better go and ask a doctor/psycologist

You're so wrong... lol.
Bipolar Disorder isn't what people think; a bipolar person basically experiences extreme mood switches but long-term - e.g. 4 depressive episodes and 3 manic episodes a year.
What people think Bipolar is, really is Borderline Personality Disorder. Intense mood switches, idealization (love-hate, black or white), impulsive behaviors, dissociation, "splitting", self-harm, and severe fear of abandon.

TL;DR - You sound BPD to me, I'm not a doctor but I've been reading and researching about psychiatry for 4 years. Welcome to the club

Well that's the thing. I haven't listed my other issues. I'd say that if I sum everything up, there's a chance I'm Bipolar. I already know that I'm depressed.

Anyway, to get back to the point. Might there be anything I can do about it?
I'm great when it comes to psychology, just not on myself. Heh.

Im a dynamic personality. Its just who I am. And we all have our bad points and good. No person is the same all the time. We have moods because were human. I'm not the same about the same things all the time. I think differently act differently. I guess I do know who I am, I know that I am a person of variety. I don'tlike the same all the time. I like adventure.

~I do not try to give advice as much as I do just point out facts as I have found people like to make their own decisions in life, not be told what one is best to make~


Please excuse my typos. I'm usually on my phone and it has issues.
