Hi, I need help, not sure what is wrong with me, and my doctor isn't sure either. I've had depression on and off since I was about 15 but over the past 6 months I started to notice mood swings but I just thought this was all part of depression and stress. At first my moods alternated between weeks and weren't hugely noticable. But recently they have been more rapid and severe, everyone notices the change. My 'hyper' moments have been gradually getting worse were I do impulsive, sometimes dangerous things without any thought of consequences. I'm always changing my mind over things and have absolutly no concentration. In between this I have moments of utter depression where I cry uncontrolably about nothing.
I havn't yet said all this to my doctor and so I've only been diagnosed as depressed but I don't feel the same as I did in the past when diagnosed with depression, I actually feel as though I'm going insane. I'm really sorry to rant and I'm probably being a hypochondriac but I could really use some advice before I go marching to my GP
