How do I know if I am bipolar?

I recently became very depressed for no reason at all and cry every few minutes just out of pure sadness.

Bi-polar means you fluctuate between periods of extreme depression and periods of extreme euphoria. Some people in the euphoric stage are excited, happy and want to do things as soon as they think of them. They often don't think things through and can make life threatening bad decisions. When depressed they can (sometimes) become suicidal. Drug therapy helps somewhat to even out the highs and lows.

If you are only experiencing depression, then that is likely what you have. Please talk to your doctor or a therapist right away, especially if you are having any thoughts of suicide. Medication can help you get over difficult periods, but there is no real cure yet. Good luck.

Well, bipolar is way deeper. It is a chemical imbalance in the balance. If you are really serious about thinking you have this, you should see a doctor. Other wise, it might just be stress or hormones if you are a teenager or pregnant.
