Problems with ceiling light wiring. Help!!!

I was installing a new light fixture. Followed all instructions. Th light works fine. However, the upstairs lights will only work when the bedroom light is off and when the other lights are turned on the bedroom light glows slightly, more and more when other upstairs lights are on.

Have I wired it wrong? What do I do? I only have basic tools...

Cassy, welcome to the forums! I KNOW you wired it exactly like the one you took down, right? OK, maybe not. You have wired some lights in "series", and have swapped pass through wiring with switch wiring. How 'bout pulling the light fixture and taking pictures of the wiring in the junction box. Do the same with the switch on the wall. That way we can see what you see.
