Couldn't find what you looking for?


I know that I most probably should get professional help, but at the moment that's not available to me, and for the past year I've been quite suspicious of my alternating moods. I always thought they were normal, until this year when I was under a lot of emotional stress. I seem to have lost control of all my emotions now.

A few months ago I was facing some family issues and was taken to a therapist. The therapist diagnosed me with Severe Depression as I had some suicidal tendencies and consulted me to get psychiatric help. I've been put on a waiting list for the psychiatric help. At that time I thought the depression was just a stage, but now about 5 months later, I find myself feeling worse than ever.

It's like... I can be extremely happy at one time, and then suddenly extremely resentful, angry and depressed. It's really exhausting and I find that now I'm starting to have more manic than happy moods. I find I pick fights with people around me, and one moment I can completely loving of them and the next I can feel this strong need to fight with them. Then I do fight and later find myself feeling really guilty.

I dont know if this is just normal moodyness associated with my age (eighteen) or an actual disorder. Do you guys know how I might be able to better tell?
