I have symptoms of depression but also bipolar. I am to scared to go to my GP in case I am being over sensitive. Mental Health are really illnesses and I would hate anyone to think I was being silly
I often feel overwhelming sense of dispair which can last weeks, then will feel fine for a couple of days then get really hyperactive; lots of shopping, reckless driving, loud - although my sleep and appetite is not affected
When I feel down, at the very worst I wish I don't wake up, other times I am not interested in anything, too sad to be bothered, cut myself off from everyone, only leave the house for work. I feel very sad almost like I could cry at the smallest thing. I look at everything negativly.
These mood swings are starting to affect people around me, especially at work where my colleagues have started to notice. I'm scared I might hurt/upset someone when I am down, which makes me feel worse.
Am I being dramatic? Is it worth going to my GP? Please could you tell me your experiences? Please be honest!
