dr jekyl and mr hyde
I have been suffering depression and anxiety for 2 years now, on meds not really sure if they working. I was in an extremely dark place but now there seems to be a shift. My emotional moods seem to reflect those of dr jekyl and mr hyde. I am ok sometimes...can talk to people smile occassionally laugh, then to the next extreme, angry at everyone who was nice to me. If someone compliments me I still know it isn't true and cannot accept it. I break down in tears cant control my emotions at all and now use self harm to try and ease this pain.This may go on for 2-3 days and then i feel the regret, remorse, guilt for treating people so badly. It is such a vicious cycle right now that it is really doing me in. I don't understand what is happening to me at all.
Just needed to express myself as tonight is a low night.
dear Ccdep, has your doctor diagnosed your condition, or just said that you have depression, or have they said you may have bipolar.
Click onto 'resources' at the top of this page and order the free information which BB can send out to you, and BB must have more information on bipolar, so I would contact them.
There is David Charles who will probably reply back to you, but as yet it doesn't show, he has had bipolar for a long long time, and he knows far more about this illness than I do. Geoff.
