I'm starting to feel really bipolar because of uni. I had an awful day on Tuesday resulting in me crying for about 40mins n the student union, I then found an audition for a play and did it, and after that I felt reeeally positive and happy. Then this morning I got an email saying I hadn't got a part, and I can feeling it sending me into another downward spiral. I've got an interview for a competitive club that I really want to do tomorrow, and if I don't get that then I'm gonna get sooo down, But if I do get it then I'll probably be really bouyant, which isn't really good either, because I shouldn't let external events effect me that much. My head is all over the place, and I think it's mainly due to feeling lonely/not having made friends yet, but I didn't expect to this early anyway. So basically I needed to get this stuff out of my head and maybe get an outside persepective on the entire thing....I never thought uni would be this hard . Thanx

I would consider getting on strong prescription drugs, if at all possible, because it sounds like you need them.

****, I was worried someone would say that, I've been wondering the same thing, but I'm hoping maybe it could just be the stress of a new uni making me act crazy, so before a trip to the doc's I'll wait and see if it gets any better as uni settles down.

Well I'm no psychiatrist, but it's definitely not normal to be crying one minute and gleefully happy the next over absolutely nothing at all.

its probably a mixture of stress and hormones.

Go see your GP, taking advice like this from an internet forum is obviously not a clever thing to do. If you feel you have a psychological issue then seek professional help.

I've met loads of people that are behaving like that, including myself, its just the emotion and intensity of uni and starting something new. We were discussing it the other day, how everyone is ok and happy when theyre with people (not necessarily with epople theyd call friends just yet) but when theyre on their own get really upset at the realisation they dont have any real friends and are in fact feeling quite lonely. Its good you werent expecting to make concrete friends just yet. Just stick it out, it'll be ok.

I would say that your emotions are changing as you're settling in to a completely new environment, I wouldnt say you needed strong drugs or anything, but it might be because the excitement of freshers week is starting to wind down, and now you've got to get on with work and stuff.

Oh honey, i really hate to say this because its not gonna be much help. I'm starting my second year and if your anything like me it doesn't get any better. One minute i'm in the clouds the next i'll be so low i'm almost underground and that's even when nothing has upset me. I cry over really trivial things and its really worrying my housemates cos they don't know me that well and don't understand my mood swings (my old housemates juts used to ignore it). I didn't get on with my old housemates and didn't live with the people i did make friends with .Its even worse at home, this sounds horrible but i'm fine until my mum opens her mouth, last time i went home within 5 minutes of walking in the door we were at each others throats again. We never used to be like that, we used to get on really well, its just since uni. I have kept my hatred of being alone but also occasionally at the same time i can't stand having people around me for fear of biting their head off.

Thanx for all the replies , I know interenet forums are not the way to decide your life, but I guess I wanted to just have a few more points of view on it before doing anything about it, I'm really glad other people seem to be feeling like this, I think part of the problem is that my entire faily went on and on about how easily I'd make friends, and because of that I kinda don't want to let them down so wont talk to them about it, so let it all build up inside, plus I don't want my mum worrying coz I know she's finding me leaving quie hard. So for the time being I will just keep a check on my emotions...if they continue like this for any serious length of time then I'll get it sorted out.

I would agree- strong prescription drugs, although useful in certain circumstances, may and most probably won't be applicable to you: rather extreme. Although it seems more like real mood swings than actual bipolarity, it may be well worth seeing a professional to find out. Stress can do some weird crap to the mind!

Hope you feel better soon.

Might not be for guys but girls are a completely different thing.
