Life is great, but I'm not - Advice??

Hi, first post, new to the forum and opening up about this kind of thing..
I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, ADHD and Anxiety about a year ago now and for the most part I thought I had things pretty under control.
However, this past week has been really weird for me. There aren't any real negatives or stressers in my life at this time but I feel agitated, stuck, hopeless and miserable. It's getting ...

How to explain to family why I want to work part-time?

I've been having some very bad bouts of depression lately and it actually affects my ability to concentrate as well as my motivation to perform well in my job and I just don't feel fit enough to work full-time at the moment, so I'm thinking of working part-time instead.

Very volatile mood..

I've noticed lately that my mood changes very easily throughout the day. Just today, I woke up feeling pretty decent and went to school, but in second period, I thought a classmate was being purposefully rude and that made my mood plummet. I was feeling extremely low and self-conscious for the next few hours, until someone complimented me on my shirt during last period, which made me instantly happy and social and excited for life. ...
