    I feel like I can explode any second

    for no reason. Everyone around me walks on eggshells. Some days I really feel like I should be heavily medicated. I try to focus my mind on improving, not letting things get to me. I really just need to train my brain to stay level. Stay positive. Stay loving.

    I've been really moody lately.

    I have been taking Seroquel. Just started it. It's a mood stabilizer, but I feel like it is doing the opposite. Is that supposed to happen? My psychiatrist has put me on it because of my mood swings, risky behavior, and not being able to sleep at night. It helps you fall asleep...

    My mood changes randomly.

    One minute I could be happy and joyful, but the next I'll be in tears sobbing. This has been going on for 2 years straight. I've never thought of seeing someone because didn't think it was a big deal, but my close friends and family are noticing it.
