I am fed up of living like this .. I mean I can't even control my mood swings.. I hate myself .. I seriously seriously hate myself for this.. I have been through serious crisis almost everyday... I need motivation daily but there is no support system ( except my therapist & she can't be available all the time) , My family & my friends all criticize me for being excessively sleepy but only I know the exact reason why I sleep that much , just to recharge myself.. I hate living a life like other people want me to.. But I am the person who pretends that everything is OK and there is nothing which is bothering me so everyone thinks me of a normal person but only me knows how broken I am....
Sorry if my English is poor as it is not my mother tongue.. Kindly motivate me and tell me how you all control your mood and aggression ... Please reply must.. I'll be anxiously waiting... Thanks in anticipation and lots of prayers for all of you..

Hi, I know how you feel. My family criticizes me as well, believing everything can be fixed with the right attitude...
I dont know how to control my mood swings either. Antidepressants take the edge off but dont fix it. Right now I'm just numbing the chaos with xanax. Hopefully will find some relief soon for both of us.
Your English sounds just fine, welcome to the forum :)

I'm sorry you feel like this, I also have trouble controlling my emotions, when I'm in a bad way I don't feel like myself

If your family and friends are being critical maybe it's time to cut off a few if you believe they are just making things worse for you, but have a think about it first rather than doing it impulsively and regretting it later on when you feel better

Does your therapist offer help with managing your mood swings? if not then I'd talk to her about it as this obviously has a huge impact on how you feel about yourself and your life

I wish you all the best

It feels good that you replied. Yes my therapist is very friendly, cooperative and caring. She really wants to help me but I often disappoints her by not making the progress she wants.. And it feels very bad to me that I am not making progress fast..

Hello all !!!!!!

Hi all, I understand how hard this DX is I take it that you are all 18 plus. I know you all feel destroyed right now but the first part of getting help is getting the Diagnosis. Thats the hardest bit!

So sit back and listen. Your life is not Over and there are ways to help you with the problems you are all dealing with.....

It takes time but it can be done. So be patient. I hope that I will be able to help you when you struggle. But TRUST your therepist. They will be your guide always.

Meanwhile I have today posted some grounding methods and breathing exercises. When you get stressed try them out.... and let me know if they help any.

Best wishes. :flowers:

Sounds like you have a great therepist! She will not be disapointed by your efforts the greatest gift you can give, is your trying..... These things take time. Your needs are complex and it is hard to sort them all out. We are all human and none of us are perfect. Some times we need to repeat things to get things to stay our brains. So Don't rush.. You will be fine. Be Wise always, and be positive. :)
