Everyone diagnosed with bipolar disorder feels differently.

For me, it's like I'm on a carousel.
Sometimes, I'll be really hyped up but then soon I will get depressed and have SH thoughts or suicidal thoughts.

People who are bipolar don't typically go through a mood swing in the snap of a finger, or go through multiple in a day. Someone who is bipolar will be very depressed for a period of time, and then will experience mania, an extreme high rather than a low, for another period of time. Sometimes it can be weeks/months, sometimes more or less. It really depends on the person. There is a disorder called cyclothymia that is related to bipolar disorder, which involves drastic mood swings that occur more frequently than they would if the person was bipolar. Somebody who is cyclothymic will generally say that he/she is bipolar.

However, I would not jump to any conclusions about yourself possibly being bipolar. It's easy to ask Dr. Google questions, but even when you do that you leave conclusions to yourself, and people are often harder on themselves than a doctor would be, who is looking at you slightly more objectively. If you're concerned that you may be bipolar, talk to your doctor about it. You can also talk to a general practitioner about it, he/she can then refer you to a psychologist or counselor if you want to see one.
