Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hi,
thanks for using health care magic.
I have gone through your available history.
your symptoms can be attributed to
1) Bipolar mood disorder particularly if you are having one pole of mood i.e either sadness or cheerfulness for some days and that comes into the phases,
2) personality disorder
In any case , you should consult Psychiatrist for detailed evaluation and treatment.
in Bipolar mood disorder, doctor may prescribe lithium od divalprorex sodium like mood stabilizers.
thanks

hi man, seems you are suffering from bipolar disorder as Anu says.Bipolar disorder causes dramatic mood swings—from overly “high” and/or irritable to sad and hopeless, and then back again, often with periods of normal mood in between. Severe changes in energy and behavior go along with these changes in mood. The periods of highs and lows are called episodes of mania and depression.Even though episodes of mania and depression naturally come and go, it is important to understand that bipolar disorder is a long-term illness that currently has no cure. Staying on treatment, even during well times, can help keep the disease under control and reduce the chance of having recurrent, worsening episodes.

It is Bipolar disorderness and not depression which can be treated medically though it takes time of order of an year at your level of seriousness. Immidiately consult a Psychatrist if not already done.

See a psychaitrist this will help you a lot, you need counselling. If needed the psychiatrisdt may put you on some medications. One of my friend faced similar problem, now he is fine. So move out of it fast, you cannot live with the past

Donot worry these things happen, you should not be at home and think over this again and again, go out with the friends. Involve in some hobbies like reading books, listening to music, do some excercises like walking or swimming. Indulge in some thing which is interesting to you. Forget he past and start a new life.

Look the first thing to do at your age is to make sure you have enough exercise. It should not be difficult for you at such a young age. All you need is strong will power and then you can lose weight really quickly.

Yes man- take all the comments and all positively and start diet and exercise in full swing. You can then become fit and then talk back to all those who make fun of you now. Just think how nice it would be to see the faces of those who make fun of you now when you are slim?

I have a question but do not know what kind of doctor you are, I need to talk to a psychiatrist, this question is for them I suffer from Depression and having a hard time right now with school work, I have no motivation at all, keep putting things off, not eating, sleeping too much, feeling really really low. This is something that I have been living with since young age. I have been hospitalized over 25 times since age 17 and I am not 40 yrs old. I am scared that I am heading to hospital soon, I do not want to go back there but I wonder if it may help me to get a break from school and other things. I do not know what to do. All I want to do is sleep and escape. This is not good, I know that I am depressed, anything I do to try to help myself such as talking to others, going for walks, going to school, hanging around people during the day, I just do not know what to do anymore, I think I need to see my family doctor, just need some advice. I do have people in my life professionals to talk too but just need to know what someone else would tell me. Sorry if this is not the right doctor to ask for advice. i know what to do if this gets worse like go to the hospital i do know what i am supposed to do if things get worse just need some advice right now to figure out what i should do.
