Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

You appear to be suffering from a mood disorder, probably cyclothymia or could be even bipolar disorder. You definitely need to see a doctor for this. You will need a detailed psychological assessment and further treatment. There are effective treatment options - in the form of medication or counselling / psychotherapy which will help you overcome your problems.

Wish you all the best.
