Hi, I'm new here on the boards...looking to get input from other people who get what's going on in my life. I was diagnosed with depression about a year ago by my doctor...but I always feel like he was quick to decide what was wrong and never asked enough to see if there was anything more. I don't even know if I was/am necessarily depressed. I do get sad and feel very lonely. There are almost two sides to me: I either feel incredible and can't comprehend why I ever felt sad OR I feel hopelessly alone and angry, like no one in my life cares about me. When I'm feeling the second way, I know that it's irrational, but I have no control over it. I get very angry, very moody, and feel isolated from the world. Does anyone else feel this way? I've lost a lot of friends because of this anger I can't control...and I feel a sense of anxiety that it is only a matter of time that I mess up any relationship with friends. I don't feel like I've explained it accurately, but hopefully you understand the general idea.
