Question Is It All In My Head? - July 2nd 2011, 05:30 AM

Lately I've been having some issues. For the past two years I've been getting really depressed for no reasons. Probably caused by a really bad break up (my first serious relationship) That was the first time I attempted suicide. Well it's two years later and things have calmed. I don't miss that relationship or anything. I've moved on 100%. But still I am randomly getting very depressed. I haven't hurt myself recently but that's because I'm staying with my aunt due to an accident about a month ago. But back to the story. These past few days I've been getting really really angry for no apparent reason. Like two days ago I go so upset over absolutely nothing but it was so bad I wanted to choke my younger brother to death. And the urge was crazy. I don't know what's wrong with me. Today I've been really upset, angry, and slightly jealous of all my friends and loved ones. But I never show this around my family. Is something wrong with me or is it all in my head?

Honestly, it could be different things.

First of all, you're a teenager (safe assumption, right?), so there's the factor of hormones fluctuating that can cause you to become depressed, angry, or whatever else, even with little to no trigger for such.

If you feel that it's more than typical teenage hormones though, or if you start feeling the urge to self-harm (or worse), then I suggest you see a doctor. Sometimes, teenagers can have Depression, which causes these mood swings, but sometimes it can just be hormonal.

That's what I was thinking. That maybe it was just hormonal mood swings but then again it doesnt seem like it would be. Since it happens so many times a day. Whether Im on my period or not. Its the same. But then I dont think ill be able to go to a doctor for this becaus ei dont think my mom would want this. Like my older sis has ADHD, and i just dont think my mom wants to accept there being anything mentally wrong with me. So i think seeing a doctor is out of the question... /:

Well, from the sounds of it, it's just hormonal. Hormones are always fluctuating in teenagers, so I don't think it's anything to worry yourself over.

I'd just say, find some things to help you burn off energy and keep your mind busy. You could take an MP3 player or something and go for a walk. Or, if it's possible, maybe a class? Art, Karate, Swimming..? Keeping a busy mind will help you feel better, and maybe you could meet new people too!

If you start getting strong urges to hurt yourself, or attempt suicide, you definitely SHOULD see a doctor. But, if your down moments don't take you to a bad extreme like that, then just find something to keep your mind off being sad. There is a List of Self-Harm Alternatives, which I'm sure would work fine even for cheering yourself up if you're feeling depressed.

Most important though, isn't whether you've got anything "mentally wrong" or not (which honestly, I don't think you do, considering what you've described), but it's whether you're safe or not. So please, be safe, and if you've got strong urges to hurt yourself, or worse, see a doctor, go to the hospital, whatever you need to do to stay safe.

Okay. I'll keep all of that in mind. And I'll look at that list as well and maybe take a class? I don't know just yet. But thanks for the alternatives. And Lately I haven't had urges to hurt myself but to hurt others. Mainly my mom or my little brother. But I'll try what you have suggested. Thanks.

No problem! If your mom and brother happen to frustrate you moreso, maybe punch a pillow? A good, sturdy pillow could help you vent some frustration. Though, a martial arts class could do the same, but that may not be an option for you.

Hopefully you find something to help you through this. Teen years are hard, I know from experience. But, it'll pass.
