Hello, I'd like to help you with your question.
It sounds like you might have Bipolar disorder, possibly Type II. That is because you are having periods of extreme highs and periods of extreme lows. You need at least one of those to qualify for Bipolar, Type II. Type I Bipolar only requires that you experience the extreme high. You can have depression, but it is usually not that severe and may not happen at all. And Cyclothymia
is mild highs and mild lows.
But without knowing what type of Bipolar you have it is important to be evaluated in a face to face with a therapist or psychiatrist. No one is going to be able to evaluate you on line because it is not as accurate.
If you do have Bipolar, medication is the best treatment. The most prescribed medications for Bipolar is Lithium. You can also take Depakote as well. Medication helps to stabilize the brain chemicals that are causing the Bipolar to occur. Also, therapy helps you cope with the mood swings and in monitoring your medication to be sure it is working well.

Also, consider support groups either on line or in person. Talking to others who have the same symptoms as you can help you feel less alone and provide much needed support.
I hope this has helped you,
