It seems like I have a new suspected diagnosis of bipolar II. It's really wierd, I got a mood chart, and now that I am thinking about my moods more, and maybe recognizing them (I never even thought about them before) it seems maybe it is a little bit of mania. I thought when I am feeling really high strung and talking really fast and trying and get as many topics in as possible was just "me". The more I think about it as I fill out the chart the more I think it's mild mania. I just think it's hard to understand that what I thought was "me" all these years is not real in essence. I get agressive and pushy etc... and I always thought this behaviour was stemmed from "issues" of the past not bipolar. Maybe the reason is because I am functioning.

What does "a new suspected diagnosis of bipolar II" mean, boi? Is this a self-diagnosis?

no, sorry I wasnt clear. After a few sessions with my therapist the dr suspects bipolar II and not just unipolar depression which I had said in a different post.
