    Me? Where Is My Me?

    It's not only my mood. Everything changes. My opinion uses to change every day. I hate it. I don't feel like there's a "Me". There are just  a thousand opinions that don't fit together, and it makes me sad, not to be able to know who you are. I want to have my...

    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.

    Rollercoaster.

    My mood changes daily, at best. Most of the time I swing from good to bad and back again every couple of hours, for no apparent reason. I've been diagnosed with depression, but sometimes I think it's something else entirely. I don't know, I'm no doctor.
