    I'm not sure why I get mood swings

    but it seems like everyday there are numerous ups and downs. I think they might be attributable to my digestion and various allergies and intolerances

    Sometimes I crack up at almost anything,

    other times you will only be able to get a few words out of me. So far I've only had one mood swing that made me think of suicide, I suspect there will be more. I'm glad I'm too much of a wimp to hurt myself, let alone kill myself.

    Another girl posted something in here

    that sounded a lot like me... I'm sometimes really hyper (and horny) and I'm sometimes in a dark, depressed, pissy mood. Honestly I haven't got much in between, it's drives me insane!

    I have mood swings pretty often.

    I could be happy one moment, and 5 min later I could be depressed. Thing is, my good mood is me trying to get out of my depression, however, the lows are me failing at getting out of it.

    Really, you can look at my stories

    and see that I go from raving ***** to depressed lump. I'm used to having a sort of middle ground but now I'm either incredibly "high" or incredibly "low" with almost nothing in between. Neither mood is really better, but sometimes I prefer the "higher" one. I like the rush it...
