Hey, I was just wondering if it is possible that I could have that one Bi-Polar thingy. I seem really happy, hyper, fun, and "huggy" when I am around a lot of my friends, or family...but it has to be like over 6 people for some reason. But when I am at home or I am with only one or two people, I am totally depressed. I block them out, if there is anyone there, and so therefore I feel rude. I used to love doing things with just one person, but now it makes me depressed. I hate being alone or without a lot of people with me. I mean I just don't get it, when I am at school and staying busy with a lot of people, I am just fine, but when I get home, I am depressed. Especially on weekends! Even when I do things with my friends I am still depressed! what is wrong with me?
Please help,
Cutie14

Cutie, it is possible, as well as borderline personality disorder, however, did you ask your doctor or psych that you are seeing what his diagnosis is? I personally feel that both of these diagnosis are vague, and anyone at anytime could fall into or out of these diagnosises at the blink of an eye. Since you have really acted out "cutting" and frequently mentioned suicide it is highly possible that you do have this type of chemical imbalance. HOWEVER all of the suggestions that have been directed to you are the cure for both of these diagnosis, as well as the prozac, but medicine is not the complete answer. Talk to your doctor.

I would lean more towards borderline personality disorder with the symptoms described. Cutie, bipolar involves manic episodes. This doesn't mean hyper, it means manic. My friend's old roommate had to be hospitalized for a manic episode because she stopped taking her lithium. I remember her actions well.

Manic is characterized by markedly elevated mood, sometimes also with magical beliefs. A person in manic would believe that they can shoot lightning from the tips of their fingers, that they can "wish" their clothes clean, or "wish" doors to open or close by will alone.

Many times a person in manic will not sleep for days on end, or sleep for only a few hours a night. They will wear odd clothing, paint their walls in bright colors and wild patterns.

The depressive episodes are on par with severe clinical depression - unable to eat, unable to move or clean themsleves, sluggish adn very sleepy.

A borderline personality disorder person usually feels better when around groups of people, happier because they identify their own identity through the presence of external stimuli, namely people. Without the people there to identify with, a boderline personality patient will become depressed, and feel as if they lack personality.
