Does this sound like bipolar disorder or is it my depression?
First off, I know you will probably all suggest seeing a psychologist/psychiatrist, and I am working on it, but in the mean time I’m just curious… I am 20 years old with clinical depression and anxiety (diagnosed by a psychologist years ago). I’ve been this way for a while and it all started during high school. It’s been getting worse and worse. I am so irritable and miserable. Lately I’ve been having fits of rage, where I scream and yell at my family for no reason. I act very carelessly and make not so intelligent decisions when I get like that. The worst part is sometimes I have suicidal thoughts and the only thing stopping me is the love for my boyfriend and family. And then sometimes I’ll have crying fits where I’m just horribly depressed and crying over the smallest things. And my moods can change so rapidly. I never know what to expect. Anyway, I know none of you can diagnose me… I just wanted opinions from others.
