    Lately, my dreams have been

    so vivid - I wonder if they're cutting into my sleep time and making me b!tchy and scared. I only know that something needs to change. Now I just need to figure out exactly what (and how).

    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

    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.

    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!

    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...
