I need to know if this is normal, and if anybody else feels the same way?
Hi. I'm 18 and on occasion, out of nowhere a sad thought (either from news stories that disturbed me or a death of a known person) will come inside of my head and suck the happiness out of me. That'll last that way for half a day, then I'll go to feeling hyper like I've overdosed on caffeine, and become irritable, then I'll go to feeling happy and content, then the cycle starts all over again. I have to walk out of class due to these mood swings and they are completely spontaneous, sometimes without any reason why I'm getting them. I've had a lot of trauma's in my life, but I've only been having this mood swings since I came off anti-depressants.
I was also mis-diagnosed with having ADHD, and they gave me meds for it, which made things worse and gave me violent thoughts. I have Asperger syndrome and an anxiety disorder (OCD) within a split second my mood changes to the opposite one
