I’m Very Concerned with My Recent Behavior — Am I Crazy?

For the last couple years, I have had been experiencing behavior that concerns me. It’s hard for me to explain, but I get delusional theories in my head.

He only socializes with select people and keeps them meticulously separate. He spends his evenings in our basement tinkering, avoids me and becomes obsessed with “projects.” Conversations...

Is it just Depression or Something More Serious?

I’ve been having extreme mood swings ranging from wanting to scream at people and curse at anything, to not having a care in the world, to not wanting to do anything all day (not eat or bathe or move) to the next day feeling full of energy and needing to do something.

I hardly talk to my adopted parents at all and I feel I can’t tell them...
