    Basically I just did a search and was trying to find a forum where someone had replied in the past 10 minutes or so, becaue I really need SOME kind of interaction.

    I feel pretty stupid posting on here simply because I'm sure this forum is full of people with worse problems than I have right now...

    ...and that's because I can't really say what my problem is. All I know is I've suffered from massive ups and downs for years, usually going thorhg periods of feeling great for a few months and then awful for a few.

    Lately though, good and bad patches seem to be getting close together. A while ago it was days, but now it sometimes gets more like hours. I woke up feeling on top of the world this morning, but then by lunchtime I felt like awalking out into the road.

    I've arranged an appintment with a specialist to have a psychological assesment, but that was a while ago and the appointment is taking it's time coming though. And recently the periods I've had of feeling shit have not only been getting closer together, but have been much more severe. There's been countelss occasions I've tried to talk to close friends, but every time I do I end up trying to slip it into conversation rather than just bring it up, and of course there's rarely an ideal time to mention casually you think you'd rather be dead.

    The few people I have spoken to I've ended up telling them a bit, but playing it down, so they've been supportive without actually having any understanding of how serisou it is. I keep hearing that it's good I'm talking about it, while knowing that I'm really not actually talking about it as I should be..

    Thing is, an hour ago I felt absolutely fine, and NOTHING has happened since then, unless you count a sudden impules to want to smash my room up and then a quick bursting into tears...

    Hi and :welcome: to our forum. I am glad to hear you have taken the steps to seek medical attention for the way you have been feeling. Mood swings are not a fun thing to deal with. If it is determined you need help, they may put you on some mood stabilizers. As with all psych meds, you need to be patient and give them time to work. I am glad you chose to post here. we will be glad to support you in anyway we can. Many members have experienced things similar to waht you are. Maybe you can join us in chat and meet a few people. We would love to get to know you. Take care. :hug:
