    I'm not suicidal, and I don't think I'd ever

    actually kill myself. I just think that if I was in a situation, for instance, a car was driving straight towards me I'm not sure if I'd get out of the way ..

    Stupid pills, I know

    that I need them to get better, but they make me so irritable, and feeling so bad. I seriously believe that is worse the remedy that the illness.

    Or emotionally disturbed.

    I've been called both many times. This past school year I was so "mentally unstable" I wasn't even allowed to attend school.

    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

    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.
