Question I think I'm going crazy - December 20th 2015, 12:16 PM

I don't really know what's wrong with me, but I've really not been in my right mind for a while now. I overreact to nearly every situation. It may be social anxiety or something, I don't know. Like, I have these two close friends, and if I see them whispering to each other I instantly think that they're hiding something or they're bitching about me. Or if my friends know something that I don't I instantly start feeling excluded and hated. And this never used to happen before. It's just been happening since a few months. And the problem is I start shouting randomly or crying for no reason.
I've also started having extreme mood fluctuations where I'm really happy one moment and then I just start crying the next second.
I'm also suffering from serious stress issues. I've already started to suffer hair fall because of stress and it's also impacting my skin.
And I just keep making things worse by writing extremely depressing and suicidal poetry.
I'm just turning antisocial and weird, and I can't even talk to anyone anymore properly. I have so much trouble even putting this all into one paragraph and I know it looks extremely incoherent and strange, but I just don't know what else to do. I seriously need advice on how to lead my life because I'm really not doing a good job of it right now.

Your not alone sweety, im going through literally the SAME exact issues, including the hair loss. But dont worry, im here to help By what my therapist has told me, much of the whole worrying towards what people think and say is just a protective factor, especially if we exclude ourselves and stay silent. What is most important to do is to pull yourself back into reality and actually watch the situation, for example " They must hate me because they said this about me.", watch and realize if that is actually true. Of course your immediate thought will be " They MUST hate me because of this/that" , but pull yourself together and think of different scenarios. The most important thing to do is to pull yourself out of that protective factor. Also, by means with the stress and mood fluctuations, it's also important to keep your mind off of anything that may be triggering those mood fluctuations, so do simple tasks such as cleaning your house, reading a book, journaling, playing with your pets, etc.
I hope I helped, im new to helping people on TH lol,
