Q: Since the 10th grade in high school I would have mood swings where I would be normal one minute and a few minutes later I would be sad. some days I would just sit around not motivated to do anything. I had one period where I was extremely sad for about 2 months. my grades started to fall since I couldn't motivate myself to do it. I would start skipping class cuz I couldn't focus or I wanted to be alone. I went through alot of child abuse as a kid as well and I don't talk to my parents at all. I'm a senior in high school now and nothing's changed and I'm not going to graduate on time as a result. am I depressed? is it dysthymia? or something else?
