Changes In Mood Are Quite Disturbing?
Greetings, I’m 23 years old. Allow me for a short story. I have long experienced quite disturbing mood changes (both to me personally and to the people around me) But since working, my mood changes have become increasingly difficult to overcome. Last Thursday I woke up in a state of extreme stress, loss of spirit, sadness and anger, unable to stop crying. Then on Friday I feel full of enthusiasm, I feel very confident, feel very beautiful, I even exercise at night. This lasted until Tuesday. This morning, Wednesday, I was so exhausted, I was confused, wanted to get angry, I even almost injured two people on the road. When I could not control myself, and the desire to commit suicide, I immediately took an antimo to help me sleep, at least 5 tablets at a time even at the office. I know there will be adverse effects from taking this antimo, but I really can’t control my feelings, is this really normal? Is this a natural thing? Is there a medicine that can make me normal like other people in general?
