Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

You haven't indicated your age.

To be diagnosed with bipolar disorder, you have to fit strict criteria. Bipolar may be overdiagnosed. Strong mood swings do not mean a person has this disorder. Doctors have a set of criteria they look for. Bipolar disorder can begin in young childhood but is usually diagnosed later in childhood or in adulthood due to the patient being able to discuss their symptoms better and have a history of symptoms.
