I Am Emotionally Unstable

    Lately I've been having the urge to cry.

    ..a lot. The little things irritate the hell out of me. I don't know if what people are telling me is true or if they're just saying these things with no meaning. My sleep is disturbed and I can feel myself falling into old habits again. I don't know how or what to feel. I haven...

    Sometimes the most trivial things tick me off

    and I feel the sensation of crying. Sometimes I'll cry for no reason.

    Stability Is Just An Illusion

    I am both emotionally, mentally and even physically unstable. I smile while my heart cries. I cry when my heart smiles. I am bipolar and have PMDD, so my moods are unpredictable. And I have one leg longer than the other, amoung other deformities, so all it takes it a breeze to...

    Things I Need To Repeat.

    Don't cut. Don't relapse. It's okay. Everything will be fine. She'll stay. Your mom will care one day. They'll stop talking bad about you. They'll stop lying to you. Your friends will be there. Don't give up again. Breathe. Youre okay.

    According to a psychiatrist I saw

    when I was in a relationship with an ex-boyfriend (who was a complete control freak), I have "some emotional instability". I don't really see it myself, I feel happy when things are going well in my life and I do get depressed sometimes when bad things happen and I cry but I'm...

    Honestly, I am so done with a lot of things

    lately and I'm almost always depressed or thinking about dying or suicide. I wish I wasn't like that and I feel like that there wouldn't be any difference in anyone's life if I was gone.

    Caffeine - My Emotion Surpresser

    I'm 21 now, and through my life, certain things have happened that have, in a sense, over-sensatized my emotions. So now, almost anything remotely sad  can cause a reaction that results in a breakdown. Too much irritation can cause a horrible outburst of rage. Luckily, I'm able...

    I certainly feel that way.

    Some people have made me feel that way. All I can do is apologise I guess. I genuinely do feel like I am of sound mind though. Emotionally stability is relative anyway? Just like everything in life. I'm rambling.
