Doctor: HelloThanks for using “Ask The Doctor” for posting your query.The symptoms that you have mentioned suggest that you could be having a borderline personality disorder and this personality disorder makes you have poor coping skills. Further it seems there is a co-morbid depressive episode as well. Its difficult to pin point but this is what it appears. This will require a detailed evaluation of your mental state examination of your behaviour.Do meet your doctor and get it evaluated.Hope this helps,Wish you a good health.
