There is a chance that you have bipolar too. But, you'll have to check with a doctor to be sure. :)

you have a 4-15% of being bipolar, depending on which study you look at. So the good news is you have up to a 96% you will not be.

A doctor can help tell you if you are bipolar. Simple things like sticking to a schedule, eating right, exercising, and getting enough sleep can all help to manage it.
