Drastic Personality Change - Just Stress, or maybe not?

I'm usually a happy-go-lucky, don't let anything get to me kind of person. Within the past 6 months, though, I moved out of my mom's house after a giant argument with her, and then proceeded to move out of my home state to go all the way across the country for school. I'd been doing really well, until one massive breakdown and constant migraines caused me to have to restart the program at my school.

Since then, the migraines have been significantly less, but are still here from time to time, and though I didn't notice it at first, it's been pointed out to me that I'm not acting as I usually do. I've been more angry, quick-to-act, over sensitive, and ready to 'RAWR' at anyone for no good reason.

I've known about the personality change since before thanksgiving holiday, and I thought that maybe after getting some rest over the holiday, I'd feel better. But I come back after that and it's only gotten worse.

School is stressful, and tiring. But I can't be sure whether this is caused by just stress, or if there's something else backing it up.

I'm relatively sure it's not PMS, too. PMS makes it worse, but it's still here after that's over.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated; I'd really like to get to the bottom of this so I can find ways to get back to normal.

  • Are you sexually active? A few STD'S cause those symptoms. If not, the flu, anxiety, etc. are all things that can cause this.
