How do you know which you are suffering from? My doctors have been treating me with anti depressants now for about 9 yrs. I have been researching about depression a lot lately and have discovered the similarities between bipolar and manic depression. I seem to have the symptoms to both do I go and ask my doctor to have a re-think about my illness? I am so unsure but so sick of not getting any relief from the anti depressants. Thanx

Depression you are usally in a constant sad mood. You don't like doing things that once brought you joy and you disconnect yourself from the world.
When you're bipoloar you have severve mood swings. You can go from crying to laughing, to be angry, in a matter of minutes. The doctor can probably give you something to help you feel better. If the medications he is giving are noy working try some more and see of they don't work better.
