How can I deal with my mood swings?

I'm in my twenties and nearly every month for at least a week I get very depressed, think about suicide, truly believe I've never been happy in my life (which is odd because the mood is so short lived) and experience mad anxiety sometimes even strange thinking and paranoia due to my hormonal cycle (and perhaps other problems). I'm prone to episodes of depression as well that do last months at a time and I've been on meds for and let me tell you the PMS doesn't help, but am not currently. This has been going on since I started my period and was much much worse as a teenager. Although I do recall months of depression prior to puberty when I was about 7 or 8 years old. (my mother said I was attention seeking)

Great really, my only support is my partner who has to deal with my mood swings and anxiety issues too which isn't really fair to him. I'm not in the position to take medication at this time, so what are some ways to deal with my mood this week and remind myself to wait it out.

Update:

I don't want to depend on my partner so much!

    Eat healthy, exercise, etc. When you are ready, go see a psychiatrist. They are the MDs who specialize in mood disorder meds, and are much more apt to get you hooked up with the right medication. I don't jump to recommending meds, but what you describe sounds very much like a biological issue.

    I think that you should seek medical attention as soon as possible with having sucidal thoughts like that is not healthy

    maybe they need to put you on some anti-depression meds and or some counciling to help with possible past issues?

    Maybe you have a hormonal imbalance.

    Its really important that you speak to your family doctor not only for your health but for your husbands sake too.

    Take care

    Go to www.DailyStrength.org It's a free, people-to-people website for health & mental health issues. People will talk to you in e-mails, or chat online, 24/7 & are very understanding & supportive.

    Once you can afford it, I'd recommend therapy and/or a psychiatrist for appropriate medication, if needed. In the mean time, try the website!!

    Of course, if you have family or friends you can visit & chat with & talk to, or a church group, make use of them, too!!

    Source(s): I use the website & find it quite helpful.

    u need to develop a positive view of life and social issues. it is the way of looking at things that affects our mood. when a glass is empty one person may feel that it is half empty and feel depressed for that. another person may feel happy that the glass is half full. we all have many desires and passions which if unfulfilled lead to depression. we should take life as a game and try to play our best without feeling too happy on victory and two sad on losing. as regards physical health conditions causing depression it is necessary to consult a physician.

    Eating healthy is a big part of mood swings. If your eating healthy it might be natural problems in your home or what your experiencing in the outside world.
