[Video] Depression Or Bipolar Disorder?

Asked by on with 1 answer:

I have been treated for depression for almost a year now. I am on medication for clinical depression. I’ve switched to a new school this year, which was my choice to do. This year, I have been doing really well in the new school. I have friends. I have no reason right now to be upset, but I feel really lonely and depressed all of the time. I’m not having any troubles at school or in my life at the present time. What is going on with me? My friend thinks I’m bipolar. Is this a possibility since I have no reason to be upset but I still am?

A.

I’m not sure about the bipolar, I don’t know what your friends are seeing and they may see some things that I’m not seeing. What you’ve described doesn’t suggest bipolar but what it might suggest is that your medication might not be working. Watch the video to hear the rest of the answer.

Take good care of yourself,
