I don't believe in bipolar (or most other mental "illnesses", e.g. schizotypal, OCD,
etc.), and for one reason:  Up until eight months ago, I had been experiencing every
single one of these symptoms for about a year.  I was 12/13 years old.
  The diagnosis?  Two much stress and a slight iron deficiency.  Within two weeks of
taking an iron supplement and getting out of stress-related situations, I was cured. 
I've been 100% ever since then.  Most of it really is just hormones.  (This is
according to a Ph.D in pediatric health and psychology, NOT me.)
  Well... I still have some symptoms, but come on.  Incessant talking?  Being
overly silly?  I thought that was just part of being a kid! 

  Did you know that just recently a new mental illness has been "identified?  It's
called Pathological Bitterness Disorder.  Yup.  You heard me right.  Being constantly
bitter is now a mental illness.  HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
  These days, there's a name for everything and everything has a name. *rolls eyes in

I know. There's even something I head on the news called 'Sweaty Palm

*answering to up above* I had my blood tested recently. Twice.
Aparently, Everything is fine for me.
And since it's summer break, I barely have any stress. So, I don't
think it's for the same reasons. No, I might really be Bi-polar."

Bipolar disorder has been through vigerous tests to figure out what
causes it. It's a severe chemicle imbalance in the brain. It actually
exists; not everyone is suffering from puberty.

Obviously some people have problems, but I sincerely doubt it's
nearly as common as people believe.

I'd say slight depression is actually quite common, and probably due
to an (albeit very slight) chemical imbalance, but bipolar is
something completely different.  

These days, it's almost as though people want to have a mental

I had routine bloodwork done three times (ordered by my pediatrician
during a yearly physical), but my mom has an iron deficiency, too, so
she knew the symptoms.  We didn't discvoer it until we knew what we
were looking for, which was the fourth exam.
Screening for anemia is not a part of the routine bloodwork exam.

And apparently, there's been "vigorous testing" to probe that
Pathological Bitterness Disorder (HAHAHAHAHAHAHA) is caused by a
"chemical imbalance."

Oh.  Em.  Gee.

What testing was done on bitterness?

Yeah, depression and bi polar disorder are completly differnent.

People like to say they have disorders for the same way some people
like to say they're emo (even though they aren't). It's all about
defining yourself. If you feel as if you don't know who you are, then
you find a lable to stick yourself under for the sake of identity.
Everyone does it somehow. ("Indigo")

the truth is that even though you tested negative for bipolar
disorder, that doesn't make it "not real". coming at you with
experience from dealing with a friend diagnosed with manic-depressive
disorder, it's a disorder that is very scary and very real. 
the difference is that ignorant teenyboppers tend to stick these
serious labels on themselves without seriously knowing what they're
really like. it's true that about 98% of kids (not adults) that
think they have bipolar disorder probably do not. kids tend to be
overdramatic and, as you stated, hormonal.

I guess my main problem was that you sort of brushed off the fact that
some people do have serious disorders, and that's not something
to ignore.

@Kirti- Pathological Bitterness Disorder is being added to the
Encyclopedia of Mental Illnesses, or whatever that "Big Book of Crazy"
is called.

And, touche, I was actually going to make that point myself.  I've
begun to feel that the label "Indigo Child" is really an oxymoron,
because they're supposed to be about defying all of that garbage. 

@boombangZOOM- Friend diagnosed? Are you serious?  Your friends are no
better at diagnosing bipolar than I am!

And I think I said, sure, some people have disorders, but not 1
in 7...  And I honestly and truly do not believe in bipolar.  Maniac
depression?  Certainly.  Schizophrenia?  You bet.  But in my humble
opinion, almost all of the symptoms of bipolar either A- fall into one
of those two categories, or B- aren't really very serious.  I mean,
excessive silliness?  Moodiness?  Incessant talking?  Come on!  That's
what being a teenager is!!!!!
  And I think you misunderstand me.  I know what it means to suffer
from those symptoms (and worse ones, such as excruciating migraines
that lasted for up to a week, dizzy spells, nausea and excessive
weakness/fatigue).  Like I said, I had been experiencing them for more
than a year.  I know how it feels to think that you are going to die.
   I ever tested negative persay- I was never tested at all.  I was
just lucky enough to have doctors (and parents) who don't by into this
