For a long time I've thought that I might be Bipolar, but recently I've been wondering if I might have ADHD.
First off, I'm a very high preforming high school student, in a very demanding school program. I've always loved school and gotten very good grades, but over the past two years I've been becoming increasingly apathetic about school, and my grades are starting to show it.
I think I might be Bipolar because I have mood swings all the time - and I know it's not just typical teenage girl mood swings. They're extremely intense, and I go from a euphoric high down to a pathetic low in a matter of moments. I meet every single symptom on the Bipolar list in Mania and Depression besides weight loss/gain and suicide tempt. Luckily, I have neither hallucinations nor delusions, as under Psychosis.
However, I noticed that there seemed to be a lot of overlap between Bipolar disorder and ADHD, so I looked at the symptoms for ADHD and saw that I met every symptom on there as well, besides poor coordination and leaving my seat in class.
The most pressing issue is my absolute inability to focus on class, homework, or studying, and it's adverse affect on my education.
