Mood Swings Extreme highs and lows

Posted by iwishiwasanon @iwishiwasanon, Dec 14, 2018

One day I am so happy i'm dancing and singing around the house the next I do nothing but sleep and cry, sometimes there's not even a day between the low and high. One second I'm super happy the next I'm feeling like I could end my life. I've been diagnosed with three different anxiety disorders as well as depression, PTSD, and OCPD.

I have no clue whats going on with me but I am extremely scared, I lose my healthcare in a month so talking to my doctor about it is basically out of the question. Can someone please help me understand whats going on with me? I'm feeling really helpless

When I'm at my lowest points I get so suicidal it scares me and when i'm feeling somewhat normal again I can't believe i'd even have those thoughts. There is no in-between I'm either insanely happy or planning to end it all. If anyone can relate or has a solution please help me.

@lioness Yes, it is a visualization excercise. But doing that and following a conversation at the same time can be a challenge ;))

@lioness Is the tapping you do EFT? That stands for Emotional Freedom Technique. I was trained in that earlier this year, and found it really helped me.

Yes, youtube has many pieces on it. I've used it with dental anxiety and it worked for me!

No, follow the meridians which are shown. On the hands, face, chest, etc. These points matter. David Feinstein PhD has a dvd called Energy Psychology. He goes into lot's of detail on it showing the method and results with clients. Innersource.net. His wife, Donna Eden, does great work with energy. Also check online. She is on facebook too.

@lioness No, not everyday. I listen to signs that something is going awry, and jump on it then. You do know that you can tap on yourself in your mind only, if you are in an environment where physical tapping is not practical?

Interesting thought. I'd recommend Donna Eden and David Feinstein to you.

@gingerw What a small 🌎 Ive had some Recki done but am not familiar with the science of it. I have to reread everything I have on Tapping and get back into it just laziness on my part.Do you tap daily?

Thank you so much for responding to me, you have no clue how much it means to me
-It can be, but it'll cost money, money me nor my family have, I get free healthcare until I'm 18 in the state I live in, that's why it's ending
-I was diagnosed at the end of 2015, so three years ago
-My anxiety was so extreme I was picking at my skin, mostly around my nails, most of the time to the point of bleeding and it was becoming noticeable, I was also suffering anxiety attacks weekly, hyperventilating, dissociating, ect. My mom had me seek treatment and I was then put in an outpatient hospital
-I'm 17, I'll be 18 in February, my insurance doesn't overlap into that month due to my birthday being at the beginning of the month

I'm sure this is important too, for the past few years I have nightmares almost nightly, I'm thinking about seeing the cost of EMDR therapy for my PTSD.

I live in a pretty rural area, it takes about 40-45 minutes to get to any big city from here.
I'm scared to talk to my doctor, I know I probably shouldn't be but I can't help it, I can't stand talking about my feelings face to face with anyone.
