  • Irritation and Anger- Help Desperately Needed

    Hello to all!

    I am a 23 year old female. For the past 4 months, I've been very irritated and angry at everyone in my life. For absolutely no reason, I get emotional and sensitive and cry about everything. It's come to a point where my sudden upset-ness, anger, and irritation are now ruining all the relationships in my life. Even my fiance is fed up and is considering ending everything. I am not sure why I feel this way and I want it to stop. I am completely healthy and all my physical levels are normal (thyroid, sugar, cholesterol, RBC and WBC count etc.) I am not taking any medications besides the daily multivitamins and am completely vegetarian.

    I have this whole attitude of "I don't care anymore" and when people ask why, I just reply and say "i don't know" to everything! I even get irritated when people start to talk! I just want to be away from everyone and everything, just wanting to be alone. I know this attitude is wrong and I just don't know what to do anymore. I snap at everything and everyone. It seems like everything just makes me mad.

    I am a Master's student in Genetics and I've lost ALL motivation to complete it. I've lost all motivation to do anything in my life. I just feel like sitting all day at home and lying in bed and going to sleep. If I could, I could sleep for 10-12 hours a day.

    Please let me know what could be the underlying problem. I do have an appointment with my doctor soon but I would like to hear some ideas. I have thought of some incidences from my life that could make me feel this way but there has been nothing so big to cause all this irritation and anger. Please let me know what you think. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

  • It sounds like you've got depression. I have it to, and that all sounds very familiar. I would make an appointment with your doctor and talk to them about how you've been feeling. Maybe they will recommend seeing a therapist or be put on an antidepressant medication. I am on an antidepressant, and feel its helps me a lot. It doesn't take away my problems, its just makes me feel like me and helps me to deal with them in a better way.


    • My first thought was diet, how long have you been a vegetarian? I have read a lot of reports that relate food to mood and how it can put a person at ease or discomfort.
      My second thought was stress or depression.
      I am impelled, not to squeak like a grateful and apologetic mouse, but to roar like a lion out of pride in my profession.

      • I know that vitamin E helps with mood. It naturally creates the chemical Seratonin in the brain, but sometimes that might not be enough. There's always St. John's Wart which I've heard works, but anytime I've ever tried it, it made me super hyper. Everyone's bodies are different though.

        Also, excercise can help a lot with mood too. It gives you more energy, makes you feel good about yourself, and creates endorphins (another feel good chemical). I know right now you don't feel motivated, but if you started off with a little jog or walk everyday, it might help. I know getting fresh air helps me too. Spending a little time outdoors and in the sun a little can help a ton.
