This is the first step to maybe accepting that I may be depressed/bipolar. Im not sure why but I find it difficult to talk to even my close friends or family in fear of them not understanding.
Im a 28 year old male with a good job, roof over my head and in a steady relationship for over 10 years. On the surface I have no reason to think I have an illness but for well over a year now maybe two I cant shake this uneasy, anxious feeling that looms over me then disappears in cycles.
Some days I feel good and have no issues. Life seems on the up then one day I can wake up with bad anxiety, irritability and general lack of energy for everyday tasks. I get knots in my stomach like im guilty of something when nothing has happened. I am usually quite thick skinned but when I am in this mood everything overwhelms me and I think the worlds against me and get upset over the smallest silliest things. I have also been told I have a short fuse and get angry really quickly. These feelings last for a few days then will subside. This has been going on for a while now.
I never really thought I had a problem and always to scared to go the doctors so this is the first time ive expressed myself to maybe get a better understanding from others who are feeling the same way.
I feel like I have so much more feelings and things to let go off in this post but maybe for now this is a good start.
Thanks for listening and any advice is appreciated.
