I Am Mentally Unstable

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 254 People

    Lately I've been having extreme mood swings.

    For example I'll be in the mood to be social and talk to people for maybe 30 mins and then BAM. I want nothing more than to be alone. What do I want? I'm so confused o.O

    My actions make me feel like it more

    and more everyday. And I think people can see it and that's why they abandon me.

    Every Day

    I want to scream and sob and cry because my cat just died. I know it's not a big deal but I got sad and these are the times I fall deeper into my depression. It's when I realize how truly unstable I am. These are the times I literally want to fall back into complete darkness and...

    I have been diagnosed with depression.

    I have been going to consolers and a mental health service since I was 13. I have strange thoughts, ones that people normally don't have. I also see things and hear things no one else does. I don't blame anyone for this. Although I don't think I'm weak because of this. God gave...

    I'm starting to feel low again.

    I can feel it coming, like some black heavy sludge climbing up my body. It's sitting in my stomach now. I know it'll creep over me again until I want to kill myself. I have rapid cycles of feeling incredibly low and suicidal to feeling fairly level. It's seems to take something...

    Understatement Number 127!

    Yeah unstable, but surround myself with others who are the same so we get along just dandy. LOL Anyone who is even all of the time is hiding something or just really good at faking it. And if not, could ya sell me your secret? I'm not sure normal really exists though.

    I have an amazing ability to take any given

    He called me mentally unstable.

    The words weren't meant to cut, they were just simply stated, and I knew they were true. Aside from the old scars, which I assume he's noticed by now, he hasn't really seen me act "unstable". I knew he would realize at some point, but how did he ALREADY know I was an internal...
