Hi all my name is Megan I am 17 years old, I also have a disability I have avascular necrosis in both hips and have had it from a young age.

I do admit I have been depressed. Recently I have noticed my moods have changed a lot. One minute I will be ok one minute I'll be happy, one minute I'll be sad one minute I feel angry and annoyed. Some days I am not in a mood at all sometimes I feel like crying and hitting something. I've not told anyone before as I rather keep it to my self but I've noticed that my moods have been weird for the past few weeks now. A few days ago I was so happy but then I was so annoyed and everything. I don't know what to do anymore?. Should I go to the doctors?

One of my oldest sisters has bipolar could that be what's wrong with me?.

Thanks

Megan x

    Hello Megan,

    I think it would be a good idea to go to the doctors about your mood swings, especially as they are concerning you. Your doctor will be able to help, and possibly diagnose. There's no need to struggle on your own; the help is out there, you just have to be brave enough to ask for it.

    Hi Megan 

    As a44908 had said you should go to the doctors and talk about how you feel..

    Are you worrying you might have bipolar as well? The only way to find that out is through your doctors..

    Also if you have had a stressful time or you have had a lot of negative events lately it can have an effect on your mood.

    Depression and anxiety can cause mood swings.  

    Don't keep it in as this will make things worse talk to a family memeber and go see the doctor to get some support..
