Question Depressive moods? - July 4th 2012, 06:36 AM

Sometimes I get into these really depressive moods, which can be triggered by just about anything negative. Someone yelling at me, me screwing up, anything. And I'll stay that way for a couple of days, I think a month was the longest time. I start thinking about suicide and self harm and I start thinking that everyone hates me and I want to run away and break something all at once. Once I get over it, I generally go back to being pretty normal, until something else triggers another mood, which happens often.

Do I need professional help?

I don‘t know if I can be much help, but I want to say I am exactly the same way. If I get insulted, I‘ll be depressed all day, thinking about how no one likes me, suicide etc. Of course I have many other triggers for this, and often it can last longer than a day.
I don‘t think you will need professional help if you can deal with it and at least try to sort it out yourself. Maybe you have depression? You should see a doctor if so. I‘m not sure if I have it.

It really sounds like this is becoming a big thing in your life, especially if you're thinking about suicide or self harm. It definitely would be a good idea to see a professional, to get things sorted out. In the mean time, make sure you take good care of yourself - make sure you're sleeping and eating properly as well as excersising reguarly (but not too often)! Also letting some friends or family members know how you're feeling is good support and gives you a little reassurance that's someone's looking out for you.
Take care, feel free to message me if you want to chat about anything.*

Like Turtle said, when the moods become so severe that you start to seriously contemplate self-harm/suicide, it's time to see a psychological professional. Everyone gets depressed from time to time, but when that depression begins to affect your desire to take care of yourself, it's a sign you need additional support.

You could start off by talking to a school counselor/psychologist, and if that doesn't seem to help, you could call your doctor and ask for a referral to a psychological professional who specializes in mood disorders and adolescents. It can be difficult to differentiate between "teenage hormones" and genuine depression at times, so if you can get someone who specializes in working with teens, that would be best. =)
