Experiencing extreme emotions
In the last two weeks our therapists have answered 211 queries related to mental health.  

From the past 5 years, I've been experiencing frequent mood swings and have great difficulty to keep my mood and emotions stable. At one time, I feel happy, excited, calm and at peace while after 2-3 days, I get sad, depressed, irritable and agressive, and I lose control over myself. I don't know how to keep my emotions and mood stable. On asking others on how this can be done, they reply, "this is something you need to learn by yourself. Are you crazy?!" This makes me confused, and anxious... After few hours, I begin to feel at peace but still anxious. After then, I return that happy state but 2-3 days later, I get sad and irritable again...
