Wondering if I Have Bipolar Depression?

Question by : Wondering if I have bipolar depression?
I’ve been feeling suicidal and self-harming for quite a while now, and a friend told me that I might be suffering from bipolar depression. After a while, my feeling of suicidal-ness would leave and I’d feel perfectly fine again.

My last “episode” had me crying uncontrollably, with raging thoughts of mostly suicide. It lasted for half an hour, I think?

This has been happening for a few times and I’m wondering if these could be symptoms of bipolar depression? I’ve been taking some online tests to determine if I do have bipolar depression and so far, all my test results are positive.

I’m going to consult a specialist about this soon, but I’m also wondering if this is all just hormones? I’m still in my early teenage years so I’m wondering if this is just puberty haha. Please help! Thanks.

Psychology Question Please Help 10points and Best Answer?

Question by Jamie B: Psychology question please help 10points and best answer?
ok im doing a psychology paper and the topic is

What are some of the major differences between insight therapies and behavior therapies in the treatment of psychological disorders? Do you agree with the behavioral view that undesirable behaviors are the problem, not symptoms of some underlying cause? Why or why not?

can anyone please help me with some information. I’m not really sure where to start. anything info you can give or websites about this topic is greatly appreciated

Thank you

Best answer:

Answer by David B
Insight therapies focus on the underlying thought patterns, emotions, and cognitions in the treatment of disorders. Some examples include psychodynamic therapy and cognitive therapy. So, for example, if somebody is depressed, cognitive therapy would examine the pattern of negative thoughts that cause depression (“My girlfriend never calls…she must be cheating…i am so worthless…”).
