There is something wrong with me, I don't know what? Maybe its deppression, or something else, how can you get diagnosed if you find it impossable to explane to the doctor what it is you feel?
One minute Im happy and then litrally a second later Im misrable and I snap at people, for no reason whatsoever.
I don't go out, I find it hard to make friends, as I feel people are judging me all the time and I think I irritate people, I have suicidal thoughts everyday, I cry for no reason, yet other times I can be normal and happy... Does anyone else suffer this and if they do what is it? Im fed up with being like this and I want my life back.:(

I think it is really important to visit the doctor. If you find it difficult to explain then maybe show him/her what you have written here? Or you could say you think you might be depressed but you don't know how to explain how you feel and let the doctor ask you questions to identify it.

Good luck :)

Hi there,...you are not being stupid, your feelings are very real to you.
I have been in that situation for many years and have periodic bouts when the very same feelings you describe come back to me. How do I deal with it?...try to do small tasks at a time, try to be with people/surroundings that I feel more comfortable with, a bit of positive thinking..what's the worst thing that could happen to me, how will I deal with it...try to have a back-up plan that you can put in place if you need to.

Good luck,
QF.

Hi QF thanks for your support & advice i'm taking one day at a time and am begining to have a few good days rather than feeling bad every day . I am usually the sort of person that won't let anything beat me that includes my depression .
one thing i realized is that i have to put me first for a change & not be so hard on myself if i do not manage a goal i set myself.
just try again another day progress maybe slow but i will get there one day .:clap:
