What are the symptoms of a bipolar
What are the symptoms?
The symptoms depend on your mood swings. In a manic episode, you may feel very happy, energetic, or on edge. You may feel like you need very little sleep. You may feel overly self-confident. Some people spend a lot of money or get involved in dangerous activities when they are manic.
After a manic episode, you may return to normal, or your mood may swing in the opposite direction to feelings of sadness, depression, and hopelessness. When you are depressed, you may have trouble thinking and making decisions. You may have memory problems. You may lose interest in things you have enjoyed in the past. You may also have thoughts about killing yourself.
The mood swings of bipolar disorder can be mild or extreme. They may come on slowly over several days or weeks or suddenly over a few minutes or hours. The mood swings may last for a few hours or for several months. http://www.webmd.com/bipolar-disorder/tc/bipolar-disorder-topic-overview

Those are some of the symptoms, but you really cant diagnose yourself with bipolar. It's a tricky disorder for even professionals to diagnose and I wouldnt recommend trying to figure out what was wrong by yourself. You said you were feeling depressed in your other question, if you think you might have some sort of disorder you should probably talk to a doctor about it... Rule out physical symptoms and they might be able to refer you to a therapist...
I heard that you get strong mood swings and act out of charactor
