ANSWER #7 of 8

also read this i found on a health site-
Hypomania is a less severe form of mania. Hypomania is a mood that many don't perceive as a problem. It actually may feel pretty good. You have a greater sense of well-being and productivity. However, for someone with bipolar disorder, hypomania can evolve into mania -- or can switch into serious depression.

Do you think this is bipolar
ANSWER #8 of 8

You're upset because I was right? Perhaps next time, you shouldn't answer questions you don't have any clue about? As for hypomania switching INTO depression, I'd love to see that one. Mania and depression are two different moods. One does not switch into one mood from other, but one can switch between moods. That's generally what you'd define as bipolar (1 being the switching between depression and mania, and two being the switch between hypomania and depression, and if you were interested cyclothymia is a rapid switching of moods). I think at some point you kinda have to realize you don't really know what you're talking about and move on. But hey, that's really your choice.
