Do I have any kind of depression?

i always feel down and suddenly happy, and sometimes i can go for days without feeling upset. But then little things can suddenly trigger all my anger and i get upset. I start to blame myself for things that i know aren t my fault and i cry endlessly, i get moody and down. I ll take it out on other people and lately it s been getting worse. I feel like i can t do anything right, I m always worried and upset. Once i even wrote letters to my friends saying goodbye as if i was going to commit suicide. It s been betting worse over the past few months, is there something wrong with me?

welcome to HCM
It is necessay ro distinguish between depression and distress.
Probably You get distressed and become moody often.
That is it. Life's little trifles are normal.
It is more important not to loose heart over these.
Learning to cope with life situation is critical, for which our mind is already tuned.
Don't loose self confidence and self esteem over these happenings.
You are doing well.
Wish you a good future.

Your symptoms could be part of a depressive disorder, especially Bipolar Disorder (BD). In BD, there are episodes of depressed mood and elevated mood, and there can also be periods of normalcy. But this is just a hypothesis from you description here. Please do not consider this as a diagnosis. You need to consult a mental health professional, preferable a psychiatrist, for evaluation and management.

There is no doubt that you do need professional help at this point. Do not wait for things to improve on their own. Get help soon.
