What do I do?

I think I am bipolar. I'm just a kid (well I am 13) so I don't want to share this with my parents but I don't know if it will affect me. My parents usually think I make too big a deal out of things so they will probably just tell me to forget about it but i took multiple tests online and they all showed up positive and whenever someone does the tiniest thing I just want to throw something across the room or smash something. It hasn't gotten to the point where I want to punch someone but if I were mad at someone I feel like wanting to slap them or pull their hair but not the point where they are bleeding. I don't know what to do. I also have suffered from what I think is depression. I'm not sure but I feel worthless a lot and I have considered suicide. (not that I'm one of those creepy depressed people but you get my point) but I don't know if I should ask my parents to go to the doctor. What if they say it's nothing? Then I will just be embarrassed and then it will be awkward when I talk to them cuz they think that like I'm crazy or something or even if I think I'm crazy. I'm stuck. What do I do? PLEASE HELP!

I have a daughter who is 17. When she was your age , she felt the same way. It is called Teenage Angst. We all go through it ; to some degree. So, there's a good chance that you are "normal". ( That's good news). My daughter has been going through counseling for 2 years. Has she acted out? Sure . But counseling has helped. And as a parent , I am glad she has an adult to help her figure things out. Not all kids confide in their parents. That's okay. Just tell your parents that you need someone to talk to. If not, seek a counselor in school. They will help convince ur parents. Good luck.

I agree with chegarr1, you should get some help. It can turn into a serious problem if you don't.

talk to your parents and a doctor get professional help. my friend was diagnosed as bipolar last year and she went down a bad road as she had bulimia and she started cutting herself but she started rehab a few weeks ago and she's doing a lot better now

I kind of had the same problem so i talked to my parents and im gonna see a doctor...so obviously do what I did. Tell your parents that you need to talk to them immediately, tell them everything tht has been bothering and what you think and how you feel and ask if you need to see a doctor

I do suggest talking too parents, but dont convince yourself you have a problem regardless you'll go through counselling and medication. I think if you try too think about the situation, get more excercise ect. you'll be fine, I get mad by small things, but if I try too get into the mind of the other person, and see why there thinking these things. If its affecting how you live your life look into it, if its just annoying fight it.

A disease is only something that affects how you live your daily life.

I'm not a doctor, but just to let you know, you can have depression and anger issues at the same time without it being bi-polar disorder. I had that myself at one time, and I had two separate meds for the depression and anger. I went to a psychiatrist for awhile and was able to work through some things and get off the meds after about a year. If you honestly think you may be clinically depressed, please do talk to your parents about it. The doctor won't embarrass you; he/she will help you, no matter how mild or severe your diagnosis turns out to be. DON'T let fear of embarrassment stop you from seeking help. Feelings of worthlessness and thoughts of suicide, I definitely think, go beyond normal teenage "angst" and should not be ignored. When people keep telling others ' it's no big deal' or 'just get over it' when there really is an underlying issue, well, that's a slippery slope no one wants to go down.
