Some weird things have been going on in my life lately, and I was wondering if this website would help me out.
First of all, I am 12 years old, but I am turning 13 in less than a week. My mood is changing constantly, which I know can be explained by hormones, but I'm just not sure. I will get really angry over nothing, like if somebody emails me 'hello, how are you?' I will be tempted to write them back something like 'none of your stupid business, you (insert bad word here). A second before this I would've been really happy. Also, when something like this happens I'll want to scream and I feel like I just can't handle life anymore. I don't feel suicidal, just depressed.
I have struggled with depression when I was 10-11, but I thought I kinda grew out of those feelings. By the way, I am home-schooled, so my human interaction comes from gymnastics, which I do 15 hours of a week. The depression I struggled with earlier in life was brought on by gymnastics, and was really rough. I also forget a lot of things, and I will look down after writing in my diary and realize that I don't remember a word of it, and it will be written in the third person. I'm confused, and the more I re-read this the more I think it is just hormones. I would just like a second opinion. Thank-you for your time.
