I’m sorry you are going through this :(. When I was on birth control (IUD) I was the same way. I would cause fights and be overly emotional. Just breath and take some time. Your mom will come around and so will Alex. 

Has anything changed in your life to cause these emotional outburst?

I’m sorry to hear you are having problems. It is definitely possible to depressed even if you don’t feel like there is a reason to be. Depression is a chemical imbalance and does not have to be “caused” by an external factor. Do you have a primary care doc? Try talking to them about what you are feeling.

Don’t worry, it will all be okay. I sometimes get like that as well where everything will agitate me and then somehow turn in to a major blow up. Is there anything causing you stress right now, more than usual? Work? Family? Have you changed birth control at all recently? I know you said that you don’t feel like you aredepressed but depression can come at anytime even if you don’t have something specific to be depressed about. Since it has been going on for awhile it could be worth talking to your doctor, they could perhaps provide more insight to the possibility of depression. 

Maybe it could also be helpful to talk to your family and let them know how you are feeling/have been feeling. Having their support could be a great help and will likely go a long way to preventing arguments before they start.

Are you stressed about anything? I know when i used to get stressed out, i could cry at my own thoughts, even the things that werent sad. It was stupid, and me & my husband would fight over everything!!!! I hope you figure it out, goodluck

@JustHappy:   I agree. It would be so much easier if depression was always linked to an external problem because then you could solve it. I hope you get to the bottom of this!

Have you started taking any medication that’s relatively new to you? This sounds like how I felt on Wellbutrin.

I’m sorry you’re feeling this way. I know it really sucks. I’ve been through periods in the past where I felt I’ve actually gone crazy: getting very easily upset and fuming when minor things go wrong, then getting angry at myself over it. I’m certain those times were related to birth control (particularly the morning after pill), even though a doctor I saw claimed it shouldn’t inflict such a severe mood change. Once it was implied that the issue was with me, however, I kind of focused on taking control and stepping out of the situations when they happened, and it actually helped a lot and the issues went away. If it keeps happening, it may be an idea to see your doctor. Hormonal changes can happen in the body and can have a huge impact on our emotions and behaviour. They can help you get to the bottom of it or suggest ways to cope when it happens.

ETA: Sorry, just saw you posted that you’re not on birth control. Other than all the other advice above, you could also look into the book Mind Over Mood – the techniques used are the same as those used in cognitive behavioural therapy and it can be very effective in reconfiguring the way you tackle your thoughts and feelings.

Would you be able to talk about depression with a therapist/counselor ? Your mom and Fiance are great but they aren’t helping if they are giving excuses or can’t understand what your going through!

(((hugs))) Sending positive vibes and peace your way!

🙁 hugs. Definitely talk to your doctor. It could be any number of things – stress, anxiety, depression, other hormonal imbalance.  Are you on BC? Any recent changes in your normal routine – change meds/dieting? Hope you feel better soon!

I’m actually in the same boat.  Just really emotional lately…  I’ll cry at the drop of a hat.  And I KNOW I’m not depressed, just really emotional due to stress.

I know you say not a lot has changed, but maybe lots of little things have piled up?

If not…  Do you have a daily workout routine?  I sure as hell don’t, but a lot of my friends kick stress that way.  Personally, I get into my art and it helps a lot.

I’m sorry you’re feeling so crappy ): We’re all here to listen to you!
