I hardly sleep, i can be irritated really easily and I feel down all the time.

Is this bipolar?

it doesn,t sound like it.i,m not an expert chuck,but whenyou are bi polar you have manic periods,where you feel great and indestructible, these periods can last a few days or months until you finally crash. depression and lack of sleep both can make you feel irritable and down. you need to try and get a routine, get up same time each day, go to bed same time etc. sorry if i sound like one of those patronizing doctors. good luck .

I agree with Seamie. It sounds like your suffering from some kind of depression however I am no doctor and it could just be that your lack of sleep is affecting your day to day mood.

maybe get a routine, start a mood diary to track your moods, exercise as it is a stimulant, cut out caffeine and talk to the people close to you.
if things get worse go to your GP and see what they can suggest
keep posting

He told me that I should try and take control of my life via a routine... So im currently typing out a daily routine for work and college.

He also said I should try and relax more so im doing more enjoyable things like swimming and listening to music.

So i've arranged to go swimming at the weekend and when I get 30 mins I put in my head phones and listen to calm, relaxing music.

He said keeping a job will be difficult due to this but a routine will help a lot so im doing what I can to help myself... Shame its 8 years to late but at least i've found whats been missing and I can make up for lost time  :) ^&^
