Feeling Life Is Useless, Is It A Bipolar Symptom?
Hello Doctor, r nI often feel that my life is useless and that everyone somehow hates me when they don’t. I always felt like my life was meaningless when I was alone and it was the opposite when I was with my friends. But when I wasn’t with them, I felt these symptoms again. I found out about bipolar after searching the internet about my illness and I found this bipolar disorder and somehow the symptoms are almost similar to what happened to me. Whether I have bipolar disorder or not is my question, thank you.
Bipolar is a mental illness that shows extreme mood swings / mania or depression.
You shouldn't rush into declaring that you have bipolar disorder. The cause of your condition, at your age, could be a:
Acute stress disorder
Endocrine hormone disorders
Schizoactive disorder, schizophrenia
For that, you should discuss with a doctor or psychologist, to understand your current psychological condition. Either a doctor or a psychologist, can help you identify the symptoms that are present and help you to cope with them.
Of course there will be necessary inspections, and controls that must be done several times on a regular basis. We recommend that you follow the recommendations / suggestions from your doctor or psychologist later.
