Mood swings :| - January 6th 2010, 09:10 PM

I've always had them but they're getting worse :| They're starting to last only about 3-4 hours. I could be happy as a clam one minute and then crying for no reason the next. Right now I can tell I'm going to be upset again soon >____< I have no idea why, I was fine earlier. Ugh, Idk if it's hormones or what, I thought I grew out of the whole teenage angst phase. Also, really small things are starting to make me upset :| I text my friend two days ago and she hasn't text me back (she probably hasn't got credit) but I keep thinking she doesn't want to talk to me.

Well if you're concerned about them, maybe you should see your doctor. They'll be able to figure out if it IS hormones, or if its something else.

it sounds like it could just be hormones and stress getting to you, but something else could be under the surface. have you have ever been screened for bipolar disorder? I believe there is a mild type of bipolar disorder where mood swings last only hours, like you said yours do. it's probably unlikely that you have bipolar or something similar, but I would definitely see the doctor about it if these mood swings are really getting in the way of school/work, because even if it's not bipolar, your doctor might be able to give you some anxiety meds to help with things.
best of luck- Bri

Yea i think maybe you should go and see a doctor. It could just be hormones or something but if it is going to get in the way of friendships and stuff it might be best to sort it out now. It may be something that gets worse over a certain amount of time or something. I'm no medical professional or anything but it wouldn't hurt to go see someone.

I don't really think it's bipolar as I never really go through "manic" stages, I just feel quite happy. So far today my mood has been stable (first time for about two weeks) so yay I'll probably still check up about it though as a just in case.

Thanks everyone ^_____^

Well the fact that you haven't gone through anything Manic makes me think you may have a less severe form of depression. If you have normals and lows, without anything manic, thats more than likely what it could be.

But, just to get a better idea, could you describe your happy stages? If you'd like, you could even PM me about them.
