For the last month or so, I have been terribly impatient and pessimisstic. I still have happy moments, but it seems as if something always comes along to ruin it. It worsened a few nights ago, when I was talking to a friend and the subject of cops came up.<br><br>I haven't had very pleasant experiences with the police; and although that happened TWO years ago, it seems as if it's just registering in my mind what happened. Everytime I see a cop, even on television, I have severe mood swings and sometimes get suicidal. From what I've read, I dn't believe I have bipolar disorder or depression, but something is wrong.<br><br>Why has it hit me like this all of a sudden?
You haven't given me many details but you may be dealing with some delayed trauma from your police experience. I strongly recommend that you get some counseling, especially since you're reporting suicidal thoughts. Your family doctor may have some ideas about who you can talk to about this or look into some of the mental health resources in your community. Good luck.
Yes, I agree with the advice. It would be helpful for your to seek out professional assistance especially with the suicidal thoughts. It does sound like there is unresolved trauma that will not go away on its own. EMDR is not the only treatment option. There are others. In choosing a psychotherpist, feeling like the two of you are a good match and the therapists background is important. Good luck to you...and get help!!! If you don't, it only gets worse.
The feelings you have are strong and persistent. It's time to get a little help. See your family doctor for a referral. This could be a short-term or more serious medical issue. A good therapist will ask the right questions and consider all possibilities including PTSD, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety. The good thing is, you don't have to continue to feel this way. Treatment works!
Your symptoms and emotions are running rampant, aren't they? The good thing is, this doesn't have to continue. Talk to your family doctor and get a referral to a good therapist or counselor. During sessions, the right questions and guidance will determine if you are experiencing PTSD, depression, anxiety, biopolar disorder or some other diagnosis. Your medical team will determine what is going on.
