Why am I so emotional, I'm a guy and I feel like I'm overly emo. too much estrogen?

I was diagnosed with manic-depression (bipolar disorder) 2 years ago and have been taking medication for it. I've always been really emotional and all that. I feel like more of a girl, not to sound rude, than a guy. I mostly have friends who are all girls and the guy friends I have, I don't even hang out... show more I was diagnosed with manic-depression (bipolar disorder) 2 years ago and have been taking medication for it.

As a kid and until now, I've been raised by my mom only (I guess my stepdad too). My parents divorced when I was 7. I just feel pretty insecure and self-conscious about this. I think I have a low testosterone count in my blood, I'm 18 and I don't have facial hair yet too ( I know that doesn't really mean anything, but still).

I would like to get a test for this, but thats embarrassing and how do I explain it to my piece of sh*t doctor who probably wouldn't let me get it??

Please give me mature and "unrude" comments..thanks>>>>
Update: thanks for the advice, thats really helpful. i've had this doctor since i was born but he's been not that great, didnt want to give me a note for my absence for gym in high school and i failed, but thats besides the point. I appreciate the advice, I'll keep those things in mind and make an appointment... show more thanks for the advice, thats really helpful. i've had this doctor since i was born but he's been not that great, didnt want to give me a note for my absence for gym in high school and i failed, but thats besides the point.
