I have a boss at work who is generally happy and 99% happy with the work I do. One little mistake and she just flips and starts talking about disciplinary meetings? Is this bipolar?

She does this to other staff as well. Like there is no gradual scale of problem severeness escalation. You think you are going to be sacked over a little issue, which she 99% of the time created.

As someone who studies psychology for my criminology aspirations, bipolar disorder is far more complex than "happy, then sad, then happy, then mad." lol
What it is, is a chemical imbalance in the brain that delays or enhances emotional response; it can even interfere with having orgasms. There is one case where a woman had an orgasm for hours and was rushed to the hospital because for one it wouldn't stop and secondly it became painful. It was discovered that she was bipolar; neurobiologically, she had no control over this. That is bipolar disorder. So it can give off the impression that someone has intense "mood swings." But that's simply not the case, so I don't think the woman is bipolar. Bipolar is...a lot to witness, to say the least.

What's worse is that you bombarded with your errors over text. The main issue that we are severely understaffed and the staff we do have are extremely slow and incompetent.

No I think she just gets easily irritated. Some people are perfectionists.
