Missy80 Posted November 22, 2009 Report Share Posted November 22, 2009 Hi guys,I'm looking for some information about bipolar disorder. I'm not sure if I have it but I've been suffering for a long time and haven't been properly diagnosed.My first and most troubling symptom is the feeling of depersonalization, of feeling separate from myself. Not only that, I feel this huge desire to get away from myself and not be myself, if that makes any sense. My voice sounds weird to me and I don't even like to look in the mirror. I can't stop thinking that there's something wrong with me, that I'm abnormal, that I'm different from everyone else. I have obsessive thoughts about this to the point where I cannot go out of the house or do anything. I get into these states where I cry hysterically for no reason and feel that there is no hope. I will sleep for 18 hours at a time. Then, after about two days, I will suddenly feel a bit better. I will go out with a friend and have a decent time, and maybe feel optimistic for two days or so (although the thoughts about myself are still there). Then, the cycle repeats and I start oversleeping and crash again.I don't really have any manic episodes, but could this be a form of bipolar?
