Im nearly 15
a few months ago i overdosed
i have certain days where all i do is cry and near my periods i almost always contemplate suicide
i self harm and alternate between anorexia and bulimia
i have moments when i cant control what i do
for example when i overdosed i went from crying to running down the stairs and being extremely happy as i took a load of pills
it scares me that i cant control myself anymore
at times i can go from being myself to shouting and screaming and stomping like a spoilt brat for no reason i seem to be losing my sense of danger i am doing things i would never have done before i hate the way that i look even though people are constantly saying i look nice i argue with my family all the time and i seem to be pushing people further and further away from me i have a massive fear of rejection and always believe people are lying when they say i look nice. everytime i argue with someone i self harm. im really confused and i really need help it scares me i go from crying and hating my life for no reason to smiling and acting like a lunatic and being over confident and loud

  • You need to get your parents to take you to a phychiatrist. It sounds like to me that you have clinical depression. I'm now 45, but I went through a lot of the same things when I was your age. It wasn't until I was 26 that I was diagnosed with clinical depression. I had tried to killl myself three times by then. It wasn't that I wanted to die, but that I wanted help to get me out of the horrible whirlwind of my emotions. Anti-depressants made a huge difference in my life. After so many years, I finally felt like I could control my emotions, and was in control of my life. Clinical Depression is just like any other disease, diabetes, or heart disease or whatever. It is a real, serious illness that the proper medication can help. I hope you can talk to your parents about this and get the help you need. If you need someone to talk to, please e-mail me at modaro98@yahoo.com. Good Luck!!!!

  • Hey there,After reading your story i reccommend you see your doctor and tell him what's going on for you. This was the first step I took that finally gave me the resolution I was after in reguard to my constant mood swings. I'm now on medication for my condition which is helping me live the life I was craving for while having horrible problems. I started off having slight mood swings like yours which turned into something severe. Please please please see someone.

  • you have many of the symptoms of bipolar and borderline personality disorder. You should seek medical assistance as soon as possible. Most psychiatric disorders develop between the ages of 13-17. There are medications that can help you cope your illness. You are at very high risk for suicide, so seek help NOW! It is not your fault it is a biological condition that must be treated. If you can't talk with a parent, seek help through your guidance counselor and or call the health department for services.
