Can't Stop Snapping At PeopleFeelingsCan't Stop Snapping At People<div class="ExternalClass9781DC9EF84D46DDA2100AB70A0D9466"><p style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;">​L<span>ately, I feel like I really can't stop snapping at people, and I really don't mean to. I just get really annoyed out of the blue and I snap. I haven't done this often in the past which is why it's beginning to worry me. I don't feel like myself anymore. I haven't been eating as much as I normally do either. I still do eat of course but I don't have an appetite for anything and I really just don't feel like eating. I don't feel like taking a shower or brushing my teeth or getting out of bed anymore. I'm not sure what this means exactly but it's scaring me a lot and I really don't know what to do anymore. Thank you for your help.​</span></p> <span style="font-size:16px;"> </span></div><div class="ExternalClass160B7F57C7BB4B06B2E3A79CA595249F"><div><div class="ExternalClass9781DC9EF84D46DDA2100AB70A0D9466"><p class="MsoNormal" style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"><span>It sounds like you are worried about recent mood changes and just not feeling up to much of anything.  Ask yourself if this came on quickly or if it just seemed to seep in overtime.  Sometimes if you know what the trigger was or you can tie your change of emotions to a certain event or time. It can help in the sense that you know what was the cause for this change, and then you can work toward processing through it.  If it just seemed to worsen over time, and you cannot put your finger on the cause of it, it could be a chemical imbalance that you might want to see a physician for.</span></p> <span style="font-size:16px;"> </span><span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"> </span><p class="MsoNormal" style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"><span>Know though that everyone has ups and downs in moods.  Those with the most coping skills can often tackle these feelings on their own.  That is why it is so important to have coping skills.  Here are a few articles that you might enjoy reading, so take a look when you have a minute.</span><br></p> <span style="font-size:16px;"> </span><span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"> </span><p class="MsoNormal" style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"><a href="/Pages/tip-99-coping-skills.aspx" style="background-color:rgb(255, 255, 255);">http://www.yourlifeyourvoice.org/v2/Pages/tip-99-coping-skills.aspx</a><br></p> <span style="font-size:16px;"> </span><span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"> </span><p class="MsoNormal" style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"><a href="/Pages/tip-Your-Feelings-are-OK.aspx" style="background-color:rgb(255, 255, 255);">http://www.yourlifeyourvoice.org/v2/Pages/tip-Your-Feelings-are-OK.aspx</a><br></p> <span style="font-size:16px;"> </span><span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"> </span><p class="MsoNormal" style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"><a href="/Pages/tip-Emotional-Health-Checklist.aspx" style="background-color:rgb(255, 255, 255);">http://www.yourlifeyourvoice.org/v2/Pages/tip-Emotional-Health-Checklist.aspx</a><br></p> <span style="font-size:16px;"> </span><span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"> </span><p class="MsoNormal" style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"><span>Make sure you are not putting too much pressure on yourself.  High schoolers already have a lot of pressure to perform and to plan for their future, and to balance maybe a job, their family life, a boyfriend, extracurricular​s and such.  Right now how you feel is affecting your everyday functioning, so please do talk to a trusted adult so that you can get some help here.  You don’t have to have all of the answers right now.  Focus on getting yourself to a better place emotionally, and you will find that it is easier to concentrate on the here and now and to separate the big things from the little things.</span><br></p> <span style="font-size:16px;"> </span><span style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"> </span><p class="MsoNormal" style="font-family:tahoma;font-size:16px;"><span>You can always give us a call.
