See a therapist: Having severe mood swings & being suicidal, even just the thoughts, for a period of time-a wk. Or so, would suggest possible. Choices; my first choice would be to contact a mental health profess. & set an initial appt. To discuss in detail what has been happening; if you have had prior tx, outline the tx hx & the medications noting the name, dosage, & frequency; i would not suggest waiting.
