Hi, I am hoping this is the board I should be posting on. I think I need help. Secretly I have known that I am in need of help for months but I have been way to embarrassed to get it. I don't want my SO to know that there is something wrong, or mom, well actually anyone. I have severe mood swings. One second I love my life the next I am so unhappy and hating life. Most days I wish my son would just sleep all day so I could to. Dont get me wrong I love my son to death just some days I just feel I don't know overwhelmed (that might not be the right word. I think frustrated fits better) ? I feel like a horrible mother because I go from talking to him and smiling then ten minutes later I am angry.
Yesterday SO did not work and we spent the day shopping etc. He says I had about 6 major mood swings, during the coarse of the day. And last night he said maybe I should think about going on a mood stabilizer. I know I need it. But I feel like a failure if I ask for help. I know I need to call my DR. but I am sitting here with the phone in my hand hitting the number then hanging up. I don't know what to do!
