There is nothing much wrong with you. Soon you will bounce back to your normal self. If you have mood swings then please check and see if you have missed your periods. Pregnancy is the commonest cause of mood swings. Also, other possibilities are hectic life style, stress, high blood pressure and PCOD with hormonal changes. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. If no cause is found then taking up an exercise you like (cycling, jogging etc), listening to music, yoga, meditation etc may help. You can even talk to a counselor regarding this. Take care!
I'm not pregnant because well I've never been with a boy as I am gay, and tbh lately it's been getting worse as I have been starting to want to hurt my self such as pull my hair or cut ( I haven't yet) but I have been thinking about it. My mood swings are getting worse its not even like abnormal to me anymore because this is alls I've known for months I used to be able to control it now I don't
Hello im 14 and i have the same problems but what helps me get through it is finding a way to express myself and being able to talk about it like Music is a major help finding songs that can relate to how i feel helps me become happy and also drawing and watching the moon help me to. This might not help everyone but find something your interested in and really get into it. :)
