Causes And Overcomes Very Extreme Mood Swings?
Hello Doctor.rnrnI am a high school student, still 15 to 16 years old. Lately (8 months since entering high school) I have experienced very extreme mood swings, especially during menstruation. I constantly hate myself and feel that I am useless, unneeded, stupid, feel that people hate me and feel that what I am doing is wrong, even think about cutting, etc. I think it’s the effect of PMS, although I’ve never had a bad mood swing before. But over time this actually happened outside of my menstrual period. I tend to want to be alone, lazy to talk, so whiny, lazy to eat, sleep deprived because I often stay up late and wake up too late.rnrnEven in the active stage I actually take up a lot of full activities in one week and I feel that I’m not tired, but on the contrary (my parents said). I often feel offended even for small things, afraid to tell my parents and friends about this mood problem for fear that they will think this is trivial and overly annoying (though it annoys me enough).rnrnI have tried many times. Bipolar and depression online tests were equally severe. But, I don’t really believe it because it’s just an online test.rnrnI don’t know what to do, so I choose to keep it myself, soak it myself. It’s also hard for me to cry when I’m at a weak point, it’s heavy in my heart. Even when it’s been shed through my hobbies, sometimes it doesn’t get better.rnrnIs that a sign of a mental disorder like bipolar or something like that? If so, what is the solution?rnrnThank you very much,.
Emotions cannot be separated from humans because emotions provide opportunities for humans to express their thoughts in real terms with their environment. But keep in mind that a healthy expression of emotion is one that corresponds to the trigger. The simplest example is the expression of anger that arises from a person's dissatisfaction with an event. This angry expression becomes unnatural if someone expresses it without a clear / reasonable trigger, at least in people's minds in general. Likewise with mood swings or mood swings that happen very often, especially for women. This condition can be influenced by hormones, but it is possible that a person has an unstable mood condition because of his growth in a certain environment that makes him accustomed to having fluctuating mood conditions.
The most important thing is to see whether a person's quality, in terms of his work productivity decreases due to these psychological problems, as well as his social interaction with the surrounding environment. Decreased productivity, coupled with worsening social interactions with those around you, can be a sign that a person may need medical help. And at this stage, there is nothing wrong with checking with a psychologist or psychiatrist to determine whether the psychological condition is still in the normal order, or requires further treatment. Here we attach an article about mood swing. May be useful.
