My emotions are going up and down >.< - September 2nd 2009, 03:34 PM

They change drastically from one day to the next. Actually, sometimes from one hour to the next One minute I could be happy as hell and the next I could be crying over something stupid or over nothing at all. Yesterday I was fine and then last night I cried because I killed a moth O______o I hate moths, I'm terrified of them, but when I sprayed it and seen it die (my dad normally kills them for me but he was sleeping) I felt really bad over a moth /: Then other times I cry over nothing at all. I've also noticed I get more depressed at night for some reasons.

Other days I'm reallyyyy happy and optimistic.

Having different moods all the time doesn't worry me it's just the fact that they can change so quickly I don't like ._______.

Hi Ceilidh.

Its quite normal to experiance mood changes. Your 18, you're a young adult. If you are really bothered about these mood swings you could go see a doctor and get assessed for a mental illness?

Mood swings can occur in mental illness, but they can also be just growing up. The fact that your mood swings frequently suggests that maybe you are just hormonal.

Everybody cries....so dont you worry about that. I feel guilty when I kill any insects. I hate them, but when I kill them I feel guilty and horrid.

As for night time depression. Thats also common. It could be because you are surrounded in a 'nothingness' state of mind. Its dark, its quite and the only voice you hear is your own, you tend to think bad thoughts because the darkness gives you a feeling of sadness, whereas when its light, you can see things and there is activity to get your mind of the depression.

Like I mentioned, it may be worth popping into the local doctors and talking about how you feel, you may have a mental illness, you may not. Let the doc do the diagnosing.

If you want to you can give me a PM/VM

Jaymi

Thank you Jaymi <3 It crazy how friendly the people here are

The problem with the doctors is I don't like my GP he's not very efficient. My great-aunt is now blind because he said she was "fine" and never took her seriously when she went down there with eye problems -_______- I'm thinking of changing doctors to be honest.

Thanks anyway ^_____^ It probably is hormones and the fact I haven't really been doing much lately, luckily I'm starting college soon so it should take my mind off things.

I'm so sorry to hear about your Great Aunt. I think if you believe there is something wrong, you have the right to a second opinion from another doctor or therapist.
I would definatly change doctors....permanantly.
Good luck at college

Thanks ^_____^ I'll probably switch to the same doctor my sister goes to, it's only a few miles more from where I live.

So far I've been fine today, so that's a good sign
