I feel slightly guilty for responding to this. I don't want to scare you off.

I don't think you understand the difference between the 2 types. I have type 2 and it DOES interfere with my life. The difference between the 2 types isn't how bad it interferes with life. The difference is what part of the cycle is more prominent. With type 2 the depressive cycle is more prominent.
I feel like I can only have friends who are bipolar/ADHD, or have somewhat manic personalities. I get bored with "normal" people, and can't spend too much time with them, because I'll either start to get depressed or go into a mania type state where they just think I'm insane and hyper. This especially refers to boyfriends. 2 out of 3 boyfriends I've had have been bipolar, I never was bored with the first two and felt that I could relate to them, but my third boyfriend I just got bored with because he got lazy and didn't want to go on adventures, I also got bored of sex with him.
You would find me boring.
Listen, if you don't want meds or therapy, what's the point of getting diagnosed? Diagnoses exist only for matching patients with treatments. I don't necessarily agree with your assessment that you might be bipolar. I do think that there might be something going on and I believe talking to a professional about it would be beneficial...but only if you accept treatment.
The eye that looks ahead to the safe course is closed forever.
