They say I'm a moody type. But i say that i feel more depressed than positive.

I was used to be a successful person. I run my own food business. When i was hired as a Sous Chef, i let my wife run the business. I have one lovely daughter who also loves cooking. I was so active, that after work, i run straight to my little restaurant and help my wife.

But suddenly, everything have change. It was like, the time have just stop ticking. I feel something that i dont understand at all. But i remember in the past that i was like this. I believe I was 12 yrs old at that time. My mom use to say that i was lazy cause he always found me in my bed sleeping.. I remember that i will hide in my closet in the morning and my mom thought that i was already in school. When my mom goes to work, i will run out of my closet, skip my school, and go to sleep. I did that for 7 days, until the principal phoned my mom.

And now, I resigned at my work, and my wife warned me that she will close our business if I will continue like this. I'm renting a room alone. I have lock myself here for already 30 days now. I only go out to buy me some foods and other stuff.

I have meds before, My doc said that I have a bipolar disorder. I made some research, it is somehow the same but far away from what I am feeling right now. I don't know if this is more than Bipolar. My doc is taking his seminar abroad. He said it will only take 3 days. But its already 7 days and He have not called me. I called his office but the reply was always answering machine. I don't know what to do now.

I am no doctor, this is just my opinion. But it sounds to me like you need a mood elevator than anything. It sounds more like depression than bipolar. Did your doc say why he thought you were bipolar. Usually people who are bipolar get manic. They get huge surges of energy and go on spending binges or something like that. Do you get manic?

I had to edit your post as you were talking about ending it all. That can be potentially harmful for other members. If you are feeling suicidal, please call 911 or check the resource section of this forum. You will find suicide hotlines and other sites that you can visit.

I sure do hope that you feel better soon. I understand you staying in your room. I have been through that. But it isn't healthy. Try to at least get out for a short walk. Get some fresh air and sunshine. I know, easier said than done, but do try.

Hugs, Karen

I agree with Karen. Please get to a doctor.....maybe a new one if this one doesn't answer your calls. You sound very depressed to me.
I hope you feel better real soon.
