needy - December 26th 2010, 01:02 PM

Sorry its a long one

So Ummm hey! I'm not very good with words and I don't really know how to explain, so I am sorry if any (or all) of this makes no sense.

Okay so I guess it best to start by mentioning that Recently I have been having some really crazymood swings, like when I am happy, I am like a hyperactive child just wanting to run and jump around and they'll be constant streams of babble falling from my mouth, and then I'll feel really low, and be lethargic, not even wanting to get out of bed seeing no reason and being very tearful, tired and lonely. But it just seems there is no middle, it just hyper, depressed, angry, . all the time and if I feel none of them I feel empty, there is no norm. Just thought best to metion that because I'm wondering if they are related

I have noticed that in the last few weeks I have become so ridiculously needy. If my friends don't text back I will feel miserable all day, and when they do text back my mood is instantly boosted and I get pretty happy before my mood starts ta Sink again. I will constantly text, hopin someone will actually want to talk, I try to stop myself though cause I hate the thought of annoying them.

I am gettin very needy and I don't know why, a small part of me thinks its because I am pretty much alone, I live with my mum and sister but have a really poor relationship with them, always have, always will, when I'm home I spend all my time in my room alone, normally I would see my friends at college and stuff but cause its the holidays.... Well yeah, they live in different towns and I have no means of travel and tbh I don't know if they'd wanna meet me, they are new friends and I don't have good social skills, my conversations are boring and there are often awkward silences.

That could be part of the reason I am pretty needy atm, but I was like this even before the holidays and I just don't understand why I am feeling this way, it make me feel quite pathetic and very annoying.

I am Sorry, I am not really sure what the point of this was, just an emotional splurge I guess $aybe I just want some reassurance, I don't know sorry.

Edit: I am getting quite scared /concerned by my moodswings they are getting worsse and they are very frequent, its scary cause I don't know how I am gonna feel next and feel like I have no control. Also the needyness is more aimed at one peron in particular and I am struggling to understand my feelings

B.O.Y - Beware Of You

Where exactly did the whole B.O.Y thing come from?
I came up with it cause I wanted something that reminded me that I have the ability… power… (whatever you want to call it)… to build myself up or tear myself down. I’ve done an incredible job at doing both. And it’s my choice which one I want to be better at. - Hayley Williams

Aw, I'm sorry to hear youre having a hard time dealing with all of this. For the moodswings, id suggest going to a doctor. You could have a chemical imbalance or somthing causing such durastic mood swings.

I think once you deal with the mood swings, things may be easier to deal with. and if not, then theres other steps you can take to regain contact with your friends and learn better social skills.

Keep a look out on TH for facilitated disucssions. They seem to have topics going on recently that i think may benefit you.

On January first, theres 'Dealing with Triggers' That i think may be beneficial for you, since according to this, you said certain things trigger the moodswings. ike not getting a text back or somthing like that.

Feel free to messsage me if you need any further help and I hope you get all this sorted out. I hope i could help. <3

Feel free to PM/VM me if you ever need someone to talk to, or just want someone to listen. I'm also always up for making new friends.
