Ask A Therapist OnlineDepressed or Bipolar?
Anonymous asked

I was diagnosed over a year ago w/ major depression. But ever since I was a little kid, I thought I might be bipolar. I definitely have traits of depression but I also have crazy happy highs. It just doesn’t seem right to me. I feel like there’s some mania in me but I don’t know what to do about it.

the treatment for depression is different than the treatment for bipolar, so it’s important to get this properly assessed. I would recommend speaking to someone about your “high” moments. There are a few places you can call to get an assessment. You can make an appointment here at insight (461-1717), The Family Center (780-426-4918), or the Support Network (780) 482-0198).
