Crazy moodswings... - January 3rd 2010, 04:09 AM

Okay, so this is probably just like hormones, but my mind is everywhere all the time. Some days I'm really really sad, so sad I can harldy fake a smile... for no reason. Other days, I'm so happy, so so happy. And then there are days that I'm angry. These days everybody and everything makes me snap. I don't know it makes me so mad. And then there are days, that I'd rather lay in bed watching House, reading a crappy book, and listening to Rent then even face another human being. Then, there are days where I NEED to go out, to do something, to hang out with people, to feel involved with a group of friends, or even hang out with my family. These crazy moodswings sometimes even effect what I think of my sexuality. It's so annoying. I can't deal with it anymore. My friends can't deal with it, my family can't deal with it. I want to tell my therapist this, but I don't want her to think I'm crazy, which sounds crazy...not wanting a therapsit to think I'm crazy. haha. Maybe I am crazy. UGH...I just can not deal wiht it, happy, sad, mad, lesbian, straight, bi, want to cut, don't want to cut, want to be alone, need to be wanted, want to die, want to live for the moment.... Is this normal teenage hormones....p.s. I'm a girl.

Ok first of all, your not crazy. You should really talk to someone about that. It may be early signes of bipolar disorder. Tell you therapist and she will so not think your crazy. Normally therapists aren't aloud to judge younif you bring up and issue. Second of all tell your parents they might decide the best path for you to go to figure out what's wrong.
Now all you have to do is try to keep your emotions under control for a while until they finally find out what's wrong.

Hop everything works out for the best,

Hey Megan!
Alicia is right, they do seem like early signs of bipolar disorder. It means moving to extremes of emotions. It maybe the cause of something that has happened, or it could be for no reason at all. I think you should talk to your therapist, because it will certainly help her to find the best way to help you. You're therapist doesn't have the right to judge you, as your therapist. She is only here to help. So I suggest telling her, and well as your parents.
Although, even some normal people feel this way, it is better to get it checked out. Just to be on the safer side! (:

Best of luck! Always around if you need anything! Please feel free to PM/VM me!

I have bipolar disorder... and yeah, it does sound like that. I go through what you're going through nearly every day. Another sign my therapist told me about is your sleeping habits... they'll be very erratic or you won't sleep well. So if that's also true you REALLY might want to get that checked out. I'd talk to your therapist soon. It can get a lot better when you know exactly what you're dealing with.


when you love and laugh abundantly you live a beautiful life.

I agree with the posters above me.
Talk to your therapist so you can figure out what may be causing the mood swings and how to better deal with them.

It's strange, I feel like I could have made this thread myself /: Everything you've said I can easily relate to. Except I don't think I have bi-polar as I don't go through "manic episodes" when I'm happy I'm just genuinely quite happy. I recommend you telling your therapist though, you're not crazy at all.

Don't be silly, tell your therapist. That's what they're there for.

Try and write down a day to day thing on your moods and times, also track your menstrual cycle. This may be a factor in which case you can ask your doctor for medication for this time of the month. And even if you cannot find a direct correlation between your menstrual cycle and your moods, having a 'mood diary' will help your doctor/therapist figure out whats going on faster.

Thank you guys. I guess I feel a little less crazy. I just don't want it to be bipolar disorder, my dad has it... and it's not pretty. I guess I'll talk to my therapist about it. Thanks!

Well unfortunately, with mental illness in the family, it's more likely you have it. But, it may also just be hormones as part of growing up. Getting checked will help you figure out, and get help for, whatever it may be.

Thank you...I'm going to cross my fingers for hormones, but if it gets any worse, I'll tell my mom. Hopefully, she won't just push it aside. But really, thank you everybody!

I really think you should ask your mom to take you to the doctor anyways. Tell her you're concerned about a hormonal imbalance, maybe?
