I have been a pain lately and very easily angered. Also at night time I cry for no reason. This is really affecting my relationship at this time. He get upset because I cry. When I cry he always asks me, "What is wrong?" I always answer I don't know. I never know what is going on with me on the time of crying. What should I do about not loosing my relationship over my attitudinal problems and unstablness?

I suggest that you see a doctor about this. It might be that you are depressed or just under a lot of stress. Doctor might give you prescription to help you for a while. However, one thing is that you should try to control your emotion, I know it is going to be so hard, but if you want to save your relationship, then it is what you have to do. Talk to your partner also, explain it just like what you've write in here. Get him to understand and support you, dont just leave him out of it, because he will feel and he is inadequate to make you happy. Let him know that it is not because of him that you are feeling like this. Have a time for your self, and really think and reflect why you think you are feeling like this. Could it be you are upset with something? Or could it be something that your mind have forget but your subconsiousness keep on remembering?

I am sure you are going througn a period of hormone inbalance. This leads to you feeling depressed. You find that for no particular reasons at all, you will feel real moody, snapped at anyone, especially loved ones, etc. I am no doctor but I believe that one should get enough rest and sleep. Too much worrying also leads to depression. The third thing most vital is to have a good food diet. All these will complement our body functions. I was going through this problem for the past 5 years. This year, I am deciding to quit my job as the stress did cause me to behave this way. I may not be able to earn the same kind of income. However, I believe if I am to go for something where I am passionate about, then depressions will fade.

I know exactly what you're going through. I suffer from major depression myself. I am also in a long term relationship that has suffered many times due to my emotional problems. I went to the doctor and got me some anti depressants. It took a few to find one that works but you'll feel like a new person when you find it. My head is clearer, I dont wanna flip out on everyone over every little thing. I can't cry on command anymore. And I'm not so stressed out anymore. Well that's while i'm on the medication. I lost my insurance for a little bit but on march 1 i'll have it again. I hope i make it til then hehe.

no problem. If you ever want to talk about anything drop me a line. Sometimes it's hard to talk to people who don't really understand how you're feeling.

this is not a depression,depression symptoms are different from this.i think u r loosing ur conscience and identity,u r not with urself thats why sometimes u cry don't know what is happening with urself,so my suggestion is that u have to realize with urself why the mind is not having the balance with ur body and the surrounding sphere

You're an idiot. Crying is not a symptom of depression? You must not speak english very well. The symptoms are crying, feelings of hopelessness, irritability, insomnia or sleeping too much, loss of appetite or eating alot, teary eyed, and even physical body pain.

I have depression and I tend to do that a lot. I'm not a doctor but I think maybe you should try seeing one. It helped me a lot. I've also made friends with people who have depression and talking with them and discussing each others problems sometimes helps a lot. You can Mail me to talk more about it if you want. I hope you find out what it is and solve the problem. Depression sucks.

I would think it sounds like it. Have you talked to your doctor about this. do not be embarrassed as 80 percent of the population suffers from some form of depression or another. I would definitely talk to ur doctor and see what he thinks. He can help if not recommend you to someone that can. Good luck

it seem a sign of depression, woman is a sensitive human, the only way to make a woman feel a little bit comfortable, but share is a good way too. i cry when i need to cry so it make me feel more okay, and i do share it with my mom or my friend so they can give me some solution or some advice and pray of course :) i think you must share your problem with ur boyfriend, if you do that maybe he think that you trust him for share your problem with him. don't hide it from him, you can loose your relationship because of that .

Yes, I believe it is the symptoms of being depress. I, too had experienced these abnormalities before. I've got this mixed-up feelings of emotions inside me. I cried for lots of things inside my mind, but I couldn't point a particular reason for my crying. Because I maybe worried about life, about the future, about my relationship and about just everything. But gradually I learned that worrying will never take me nowhere. And if I won't get hold of my emotions, just like your fear, I will loose my relationship. And that I couldn't afford to gamble. And so I found a very good friend to talk to, I try to keep myself busy by doing creative things, I exercise regularly to help me relax, calm and healthy. And last but not the least, improve your spiritual side, because being with God is being at peace with yourself. Knowing that whatever happens in the present and in the future, God will strenghten you. Goodluck and God Bless.

it certainly sounds like depression to me. First of all you do need to talk to your partner and explain to them exactly how you feel as in as much detail as it is possible to do. Secondly, I think you really should go and talk to your dr and explain to her exactly what you have told us on here. As you can probably see im a great believer in talking where possible i think most ills can be helped by doing it.

I love to express how I feel but I think that no one is listening when I tell them. Everything feels like it is going in one ear out the other. Everyone just tell me to leave my fiancee, he is making me misareable. But really he is not, I am doing this to myself. I just need some professional guideance. thank you for the response.

Try to talk to your man about things. It's good to be open, communication is very important in a relationship. Or see a doctor right away before you lose your man. This is something that needs to be taken care of right away.
