    Plenty of mood swings, periods of irrationality and fear. Mostly driven by pressure I put on myself. Sigh.

    I Do

    I have severe mood swings. I have had them for as long as I can remember. I am on medication now to help make them not so frequent, but sometimes I do get them!

    feeling pretty positive a couple of laughs.. literally just got home gone into my room and burst into tears... This sucks, it could end up killing me. Often when I'm driving I get a random urge to put my foot down and drive into something.. this isn't healthy. Sometimes I find...

    Lately, I've been having really bad mood swings, and have lots of difficulty trying to keep my composure. Especially in public. My foul mood has been on for a week now. I don't know why, but I've been swearing much more too. And I've began cutting myself again. I get irritated...

    Incredible

    Most of the time I am sad, but there are times when I feel really good and energetic. Like I had some great stimulant. I wake up groggy every day and it takes me a long time to wake up. My mood can go from very bad to very good in 30 minutes.

    I really don't know how to deal with my mood

    swings. They have been causing problems in my relationship. Taking my anger and sadness out on my boyfriend for no reason. Anyone have this problem? How did you handle it?

    Me and My Black Moods

    I've been seeing a psychiatrist and therapist as well as taking Paxil for about a year and a half now. The reason for that is I've been lonely and depressed because I didn't really have any friends. I've also been anxious and developed gastritis as a result. Now I feel fine...

    The smallest things put me in the worst mood.

    Someone says a small comment and I want to rip their neck out with my teeth. I have absolutely no way of releasing my anger. I've never acted in thoughts or feelings and just store it up. What can I do to release it?

    I'm really starting to get aggravated with

    these mood swings. I mean, my bipolar is frustrating. I wish there was a way of controlling it, but I have no control over it. Well, I do, but it's difficult. It's been getting worse because of a reason I would rather not share publicly. It's just really irritating. I want it to...
