Our expert says:
ecstasy and other drugs can certainly cause memory loss and mood swings including a short temper. If you are worried that your temper is so bad that you may hurt someone then it is important for you to seek help.
Why is it that you cannot go to a doctor? At the age of 20 you will be given confidentiality, they are not allowed to pass information on to your parents if that is what you are worried about. You could also consider going to see a Psychologist and request this for anger management reasons, and then explain to the Psychologist about the drug use when you see them.
After a period of not using symptoms such as anger and memory problems do subside. For further information please contact Cape Town Drug Counselling Centre on 021 447 8026. If you are not in Cape Town they will be able to advise you of your nearest service.
