Thanks for your question. My name is ***** ***** I'd like to help you out.
Based on what you've described, it is possible that you have bipolar
disorder, although a professional diagnosis would be the only way to know for sure. As you may already know, bipolar disorder is characterized by extreme mood swings. This may explain some of your bursts of positivity and periods of depression, which can contribute to the forgetfulness and inability to finish things that you've started. If you do have Bipolar disorder, then receiving proper treatment should make a big difference in your ability to manage these things.
Some would argue that people who are very creative tend to be a big more forgetful and have more difficult staying organized. This can also be symptomatic of attention deficit disorder
, so it may also be important to rule this out as well. Even if you do not meet the criteria of a clinical diagnosis for Bipolar or ADDD, I would certainly not underestimate how difficult periodic bouts of depression can be, and if they came during tough periods of your life, that could be a perfectly reasonable explanation for what you've experienced.
I've attached a link here
to an online Bipolar test from a very reputable website that should give you a pretty good idea of whether this applies to you.
I've also attached a link here
to an online Attention Deficit Disorder test so that you can see if this is a diagnosis that may apply to you.
No matter what the results, if you are having some concerns about yourself I would certainly recommend having a professional evaluation by a therapist in order to get a better understanding of what exactly may be behind these problems. In that way you can start taking some measures to get this under control.
I definitely wish you the best, ***** ***** there is anything else I can do to help you can certainly send me a reply.
All the best,
