I have a friend who has been diagnosed with depression. Funny thing is though, she can be crazily happy and amazing and O.o... but every so often, she randomly turns sad and angry at everything, and lots of people lose patience and just yell at her to grow up and stop being such an emo. I try to keep my head, and remember that it will blow over, but it happeed more and more often. she' now taking antidepressants once a fortnight, but still seems to be a bit crazy.
I've come to love her for it, and despite it sometimes actually getting to the point that it's terrifying, i think that that's honestly just how her mind works. she is irrational, spontaneous, and wonderfully unpredictable.
i guess i'm just saying that if that's the sort of thing you feel, just remember that you will have friends who don't mind that. it's who you are, so express yourself however you wish. just try to think of others when you do. :)
Man, I'm sorry about that. It really sucks.
If you don't mind, how do you deal with it?
i feel the same and wondered the same thing, your not alone, not that that statement helps, at all, but, i try to lose myself in music, books, drawing, anything that bring me enjoyment, book in particular, get lost in the fictional worlds of books, its a real good cure. or go hang with friends, or focus on school (its a good thing, i dont do it, but if it works for you go for it, its really productive so,.... my attention span is short, but ummm did i say attention span? i ment intelligence, burst of intelligence
Well the mood shifting thing might be early signs of Bipolar Disorder. But I don't wanna upset you out of nothing, so it would probably be a good idea to just talk to a therapist or someone who knows about the matter.
It really is possible you have depression or maybe manic depression, you really should talk to your doctor. I personally had problems with anxiety and depression, and I remember thinking that maybe it was bipolar depression because sometimes I would feel elated, but it turned out to just be the contrast between sadness and happiness, which had began to blur for me. I talked myself out of my suspicions, but eventually it became imperative that I get help. I can't describe how much better I feel now that I'm on Prozac. It's a medical condition, and nothing to be ashamed of. If you are feeling this way, you should talk to your doctor or parents, don't let your parents dismiss your feelings as teenage hormones if you are feeling suicidal or masochistic. I made that mistake, and I wasted time that I could have spent living drowning in my own self made misery. Don't be me, life is to fabulous to not enjoy :)
Believe me everybody goes through things like that. At least from what you've said, I can relate to it as when I feel unstable. And the worst thing is you feel as if you are completely alone, the only one in the universe feeling that way, even when you ask other people and they say exactly what I am saying right now! Which is annoying in some ways, but not as depressing as the depression itself.
I went through what you're going through, my depression started in 8th grade and went through all of high school, at the end of senior year i finally got help and was diagnosed with moderate major depression, i was given some meds and it has really helped out. I never talked or wrote about how i felt so that didn't help me, just talk to someone so you will have fun in high school unlike i did.
