Thank you for your post. Before providing suggestions, I have a few questions for you. How has these symptoms affect you day-to-day? Does it affect your relationships with family/friends, does it affect you in completing your obligations?

I see...do you know if there is a family history of Bipolar Disorder?
My suggestion for you is to see a therapist or a psychiatrist as you may be experiencing symptoms of Bipolar disorder. Although I am not able to make such a diagnosis through this forum, your current struggles warrants a visit,
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
i dont know really i dont think so, do you know what would happen seeing a therapist? as i have seen a school councellor but that ended badly and dont want that again.
when seeing a therapist, you will learn coping skills to deal with the depression and impulsiveness you may experience
In addition, you may learn more about this diagnosis and ways to resolve relational issues with your parents
