My emotions are so out of control. I thought my medication was helping me but now I have different problems. First I had anxiety, depression, some anger problems, & self esteem issues. Ive been on paxil for about 6 months now and I am so angry, hateful, suspicious, and feel like I don't have control over anything. I switch back and forth between being extremely needy and dependent to wanting tons of space and independence. I can't make any decisions. I have to have help to make any sort of decision. I don't trust anyone, I think everyone is out to get me. I am tired all the time. I will go back and forth between never eating and eating like crazy. Sometimes I get so mad, I don't know what to do, I have an uncontrollable urge to hurt myself. I'll scream and scratch myself and pull my hair out...pretty much until I have a panic attack. Can someone help me please? Should I go to a psychologist?

  • Yes.Though my viewpoint may be skewed, I've always thought a person is capable of solving most emotional problems through self analyzation. Try asking yourself "Why?" whenever you begin to feel a strong emotion. Try to pinpoint what is disagreeable and try to let go of the worry / avoid the situation.Having someone who is trained to help is much better though.
