Hi I was just wondering if u can get a diagnosis for a mental health issue
So I have mood swings quite a lot but I have periods of 4 certain moods. It’s a bit weird because it doesn’t matter what’s going on I will have the certain mood that I’ve as for maybe a week or so. They don’t always have an order but here they are: one is a very low,depressed mood where I won’t want to get out of bed in the morning and I’m extremely suicidal everyday. I’ll also just feel like there’s no point in doing anything and I’ll really really hate the way I look (I always do but at this period it’s constantly on my mind) I also feel really lonely and ignored and basically invisible then I also have really anxious stressed moods where I will often have panick attacks and think everyone’s looking at me and be constantly thinking that person hates me and just be quite paranoid in general. I will also get really stressed and feel like everything’s overwhelming. I also have a kind of numb period where I just kind of feel empty and don’t really feel much at all. I also have periods where I go from really happy to really sad. I’ll be really crazy and eccentric in this period. These last two periods are generally shorter that the first two. I also want to not that I self harm. Basically I’ve looked online loads on tests but I always feel like they’re probably wrong

Have you consulted with your pediatrician?

How are you doing in school?

Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?

No, some of my friends have been and they didn’t do anything and didn’t diagnose them.
My mum knows but she doesn’t know everything but I think she has a similar experience
I don’t really like school but I’m not failing anything however I want to get 7+ in all my subjects
I don’t have any other medical issues

Thank you for that additional information.

From what you have posted the best thing for you to do is consult with your GP, tell her exactly what is going on and see if she will refer you to a psychiatrist or PhD level psychologist for a complete workup and, possibly, evaluation using standardized tests.

This will take some time and effort on your part but this way you will have a good diagnosis and be able to set up a treatment plan that will help with all your symptoms.

Does this make sense to you?
