Patient :For a while I have noticed I have mood swings I feel like I'm on a rollercoaster, with sometimes feeling ok and happy but then I start to feel myself go down, until I go down so low. Sometimes I feel like I'm in a black hole for days and I can't see my way out. I lose hope. Then gradually I improve again. And the cycle repeats. I noticed this was very pronounced when I lived alone for the first time. I wondered what could be wrong with me. The menstrual cycle makes it worse. But my moods fluctuate all month. I often feel irritable, teary, alone and deeply unhappy but it's really like a pendulum and I swing back to sort of being hopeful and happier. But I never feel even and stable. Do you think there's something wrong with me?
