My moods can change so suddenly and by things that are usually quite trivial. I've been feeling depressed since Monday because I had a huge meltdown in public after grocery shopping because the cab took so long to arrive. And then only a while ago I make the mistake of clicking on a link someone posted on WP that took me to a "news" article about doctors admitting that vaccines do cause autism they've just been keeping it a secret and the article called autism a brain injury and other things I couldn't read because I was shaking and crying and miserable all over again. I didn't go out for supper with my mom yesterday because I was felt awful and slept most of the afternoon.

Before I was diagnosed with Asperger's I thought I might have bipolar II but the staff at the home I was in just thought I was making excuses for my bad behavior. I'm lucky to even be diagnosed with Asperger's at all, and in spite of all the psychiatrists I've seen over the years the only thing they diagnosed me with was schizophrenia form disorder when I was around 13 and it turned out to be inaccurate but I've been messed up in the head for years so who knows?

I think one of the key traits with BP II is hypomania , have you had hypomania?

There's nothing obvious in your post that suggests Bipolar II. As SaveFerris says, have you ever had any episodes of hypomania? There is lots of information on this website about the grey area between Bipolar I and Unipolar Depression.
