Hi, I am a fourteen year old girl diagnosed with both an anxiety disorder and an emotional condition (they didn't specify what that was, however), so I have a few questions for you. First off, what is atypicality? My teacher says I have trouble with that. The second thing is, what exactly is an emotional disorder? I'm kind of confused at the vague answers that Wikipedia and Google are giving me. Third, would I be considered Bipolar or depressive (I know that emotional disabilities qualify under that), since I have "episodes" of depression, mood swings, and social problems (I'm extremely introverted, my speech is extremely formal, yet I don't have Asperger's, I'm overly-anylytical,) and my intellectual abilities are difficult to predict due to the discrepancy of my verbal and nonverbal IQ?

Thank you for the help. I just need you to clarify for me what an emotional condition actually is.
