I am 22yrs old, I get stressed, emotional, and angry very easily and I dont think its PMS because its all the time. I also seem to get nervouse over simple things like going to the shops on my own , I always worry what people think about me and its getting worse.

I feel the same way except I'm 18. I feel terrible for always feeling so irritable and snapping at everyone but I honestly just can't control it. I have no money to go see a doctor right now so if anyone has ideas as to what would help it would be greatly appreciated.

I cannot sleep at night if something bother me!
It's horrible to turn my mind off it.
The restless nights brings boring day.
I talk a lot to myself "mind" and something like another person in me.
No one to share with!

I know exactly how you feel. I am the same age and have been experiencing the same symptoms. I don't know what is wrong with me, and today I just felt like crying. It's like I have so much on my mind I don't know what to do, and I don't really have anyone to talk to.

Hi Kathy!

Thanks for your post and welcome!
I'm sorry you feel so moody and nervous to go out on your own--but looking for a solution is taking the right steps, so good for you!
I do have a couple of questions for you, though:

Do you have health insurance? If so, have you seen a doctor?
Have you been on any meds lately?
Have you had any big changes happening lately? Anything that could cause stress?

The reason for all these questions is because sometimes we don't realize that all the stress could have caused us to be depressed-- even if it's a mild form. Or sometimes an imbalance within the bodies hormones can cause a shift in feelings. I'd like to know what you've been told by doctors if you've seen one or if you'd be willing to visit your doctor and we can take it from there.

Here is a similar situation to yours, perhaps the responses on that thread could help.


Best Wishes!
