Our expert says:
Sniffy, no, it's not the normal sort of Depression, in which one is very Depressed ( with a range of symptoms as well as sadness ) for most of the time, most of the day, most days of the week.
But some folks do indeed have an unstable mood, and when you describe cutting, hitting yourself and throwing up, this is a very recogniseable pattern --- and some thing which can and should be greatly helped by seeing a shrink, for a fuller asssesment and advise on treatment options. Counselling is definitely indicated.
