I'm 15 yrs old and I suffer from bp...I havent been diagnoised by a doctor yet but I know I have this depression. My friends have noticed the changes in me for bout 3 years now and my mom says I am but still I havent been taken to the doctor. You may be thinking that I cant have it because a doctor hasnt gave me the heads up that I do but I just want help! What I experience? Well I'm always sad and most of the time I start crying all of a sudden and I dont stop for hours. Sometimes I'll be upbeat and I just start jumping around. I get upset and mad and I start yelling loudly. Ive been suicidal since Ive been 11 or 12 and also well I have a cutting problem. I'm always putting myself down and I feel really worthless. I lock myself in my room and I stay in my home for weeks at a time cause I dont want to be outside or around people. I easily distracted and I blank out and forget what im doing or what im saying. Also I have panic or anxiety attacks  and also I see things. I stay up all night without being tired and when I try to sleep I have trouble. And what experience is really hard on me...So Im here seeking advice on my problem and what I should do?

Hi!  What I am wondering is why your mom thinks you have BP or even just depression, and doesn't get you help?  BP is a very very serious mental illness that can destroy lives in every way; relationships with everyone, financial ruin, dangerous and risky behaviour (not even considering any dire consequences of your actions) and more. 
BP is very hard to diagnose; it mimics illnesses like ADD, depression only or schitzophrenia in some cases.  However the symptoms you describe do sound like you may be experiencing some hypomanic (milder than full blown mania) tendencies. 
Here is a list of symptoms of mania.  You have to be diagnosed as having at least one episode of mania lasting at least 4 days or more.
