I thought I may have directed you to search for "DSM-IV criteria for Bipolar Diorder" and compare the symptoms described with your own.  You can do that.  There is no screening assessment on this site but I found a site you can go to that has a questionaire you can take.  You may still end up questioning if you do or do not have the disorder.  A proper evaluation by a psychiatrist would be most conclusive.

   Alot of adult counsellors know about bipolar as they treat alot of

people,  so if you can get to one,  then they should know if you need

a refferal to see a psychiatrist to be evaluated.

to have more time  than family doctors do.
