Maybe I'm here?

Hello, it's 5am NYC. Can't sleep, bothered as hell. I got perhaps some 'bad' news @ a new shrink's office today. I had a good doc, but he died. In February.

What is wrong with me? Someone please help.

Someone please tell me what is wrong with me.

I overreact to even the smallest things.

I overanalyze everything people say to me.

My mood fluctuates a lot. I am either very happy or extremely depressed - there is no in between.

I can't just do something a little bit, I become extremely obsessed with whatever it is and cannot stop until I am satisfied.

I have a bad temper.

I either sleep a lot ...

Friendships (semi-vent)

I am terrible at having friendships - I let myself be used. I am highly maternal and caring and will give unconditional love. Also, I will feel two-faced at the same time as I hear more about a person's flaws and will analyze it to death.
