Do you think i could be suffering from a mental disorder? Symptoms-extreme crying, worrying, anger, sad one minute happy the next, stress, suicidal thoughts, doomed feeling, high blood pressure, that has lead to cocaine use for 2 years snorting. For 1 yea

Hi. : Hi. I cannot diagnose your problem. It is not clear which came first, the drugs or the mood issues. Each can exacerbate the other. The mixture of cocaine, alcohol and smoking (tobacco? Marijuana? Hashish?) could be deadly. You stated that you are experiencing palpitations and high blood pressure now. The extreme mood changes might be related to the drugs you are putting into your system. Extreme mood changes can also be associated with certain personality types or mood disorders. One thing is for sure, if the substance abuse continues; if there is an underlying mood disorder - it will not improve. The best way to determine if there is an underlying mood disorder is to be free of all chemicals for at least three months. Your suicidal thoughts are of concern. If you have thoughts of killing yourself, a means or a urge to carry this through, you need to get emergency help. Whether you are actively suicidal or not, if you keep harming yourself with chemicals you have the risk of dying. I hope that you get professional help. You sound miserable and things could be much better for you. Take care. ...Read more
