sometimes it is basically impossible for me to rise in the morning,i feel as if i have no reason to.The smallest thing can make me break down in tears and really it is for no reason,it is just that i feel so hopeless and sad,i am 40 years old and have felt this way since the age of 17,i can not hold a job because i feel as if people are talking about me,i wont go to stores for the same reason and i get very nervous around crowds of people.I have trouble doing housework,i have no energy,and i keep feeling like something bad will happen to me if i leave home for any period of time,i am just not dealing with life as i should be,what is the solution or is there a solution,do i need to see someone about this problem

Can you write more specifically about the periods when you said you act crazy, or search people out and go drinking for days? We want to see if you might be suffering from what we know as Bipolar Disorder. It is a mood disorder where you can see ups and downs in mood, not necessarily alternating. You might have periods when you feel neither depressed nor the opposite (mania). And for this reason, it will help if you could describe more about those periods, so we can see if they are episodes of mania or hypomania.

Apart from a possible diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder, mood disorder can also be seen with the use of alcohol and other substance. You might want to write some history of alcohol use, too.

Take care
