Default Bi-Polar symptoms,

Well, I'd like to start off by saying that I have not requested nor been given any sort of diagnosis.
I know I'm depressed, Clinically, and I'm fairly certain I'm Bi-Polar as well.
I just have like...
Basically one day I'll be in a good mood, then it'll slowly sink and eventually hit rock bottom and I'll be like that for a few days, then I'll be all joyful and jubilant again.
Sometimes it's really sudden too,
Just wondering if this means I could have Bi-Polar depression.

From what i have read on this subject being diagnosed with bi-polar is extremely hard because of the range of symptoms and different types of bi-polar. If you are worried can you visit your doctor and see what they say?

Red face diff types

there are two types- type 1 and type 2. It can actually be confused with schizophrenia and some are misdiagnosed. In the worse case you can lose contact with reality and experience "psychotic episodes" which result in hospilitation. only a doctor can tell. A high is called "mania" which leaves you feeling uninhibited and outgoing, no shyness and feeling i can take on the world and almost have super powers! its hard to sleep and you have more energy. Then theres the other side of the scales - depression feeling suicidal wanting to leave the world.

Is it as worse as this?

Yeah pretty much, although no one knows and I'd like to keep it that way.

Post Read up on it

there is also mixed states where you can feel agitated energized and depressed at the same time. Normally ppl with bi polar will be treated in hospital at least once in their life when it comes to a head. only an expert can help. Read some books on it if your worried theres good selection. Extreme highs and lows is best way to describe it . strikes people in their prime too ive heard

I think for the most part mood swings last longer like weeks or months at a time.

I think having mood swings is just a part of depression. I often have times where I feel good, but I'm still depressed and then I sink low again.

Hey, I agree with the people above who say to talk to a trained psychiatrist or psychologist instead of self-diagnosing, but it sounds like there is definitely a depression component to what's going on.
I would encourage you to be very proactive about your health and look into counseling.

I'd say get at least one opinion by a professional/team of professionals. I've been to the mental hospital twice and a couple out patient places. I just realized a little bit ago that I'm at the tail end of mania again. I feel for anyone who is bi polar, it sucks
