Mood swings - May 11th 2011, 11:40 PM

So yeah

I have these really energetic and hyperactive moods where I am convinced that nothing can hurt me and that I am better than everyone else, like fully convinced that everyone else is beneath me.

And then on the other hand I have these really depressive moods where I feel like there's no point in being alive and that I'm not like good enough for anyone and stuff.

It's kind of like when I'm hyperactive I forget about how I want to die and stuff when I feel depressed, and then when I'm depressed I forget about how happy and excitable I was.

And both kinds are a problem cause when I'm hyperactive I say really mean things and decide that I can talk to people however I like because they are all nowhere near as special as I am, plus people have told me how annoying I am when I get hyperactive.
When I get depressive I lash out at EVERYONE, including my friends and especially my family, and I can't get anything done cause I'm always like what's the point?

Does anyone know if this is like normal? Is it just like normal mood swings that I have to deal with or can I do something about this, cause I really don't know if it's bad enough to warrant action. Three of my friends have told me separately that they think there's something wrong with me and that I should get it checked and one of them used to be kinda depressed and she said that I should get something done about it before it gets worse but I don't genuinely know if there's anything that can be done about it plus I have this kind of aversion to going to the doctor so I dunno what to do?

Any advice whatsoever would be really appreciated

I know exactly how you feel. In my opinion, I don't think it's normal, but then again, everybody is different.
I think that if it's really bothering you and other people are starting to notice a difference in you, then you may want to talk to a doctor about it. It is completely up to you though.
Yes, doctors may be scary, but they are there to help you, and maybe talking to a doctor or even counselor can help you figure this all out.
