Confused (and new)
I'm relatively new here and basically new to reseraching any sort of medical conditions. Anyhoo, I'm 18, male in education in the north east of England. I have a normal life I guess with great (but volatile) friends. But lately, over about a period of a year or two, I get odd and horrible feelings. Sometimes lethargic and dead, sometimes I'm scarilly hyper, slurrign my words and saying random things outload. I mostly feel awkward in social situations and I never used to be shy Im told. Random, intense bursts of rage also occur and I get angry/confused/scared/upset for no reason at all.
But overall, I feel sad. the rest of the symptoms and 'standard issue' depression ones, yknow, thinking about suicide and I recently started harming my self. Nothing serious, just little scratches. Im told I drink heavily but I don't buy that part. It's just that I have nothing to be depressed about! I feel like I'm making excuses if I tell someone all this. Although the only reason I'm here is because I can't sleep and my friends suggested I find help so, here I am. Am I depressed? I mean, I guess I'm not kidding anyone by posting it here, so go for it.
