Bipolar - Differing personalities? watch

    I'm a diagnosed bipolar sufferer, I was wondering if varying personalities is a common symptom. I don't think its dissasociative identity disorder, I don't lose consciousness/black out when I change. Its just I have constant and quite severe mood swings where my interests and outlook completely change. I'd define the "identities" as:

    -Manic/Hyper/Childlike
    -Depressive/Sullen
    -Macarbe and intellectual
    -Explorative/Investigative/Curious
    -Angsty/Angry/Loner

    So its not as black and white as me being manic/depressive/level, it seems more complicated. Just wondered if any bipolar sufferes had similar symptoms?

    hey, yeah you still know you're the same person, but you behave differently and you sometimes think of yourself as someone with various passengers inside your head who are all still you and come out at different times?

    or not....?
