I've been a very moody person lately and I don't know why. My boyfriend is getting frustrated with me and we have been arguing a lot. We have only been together 9 months, some days are amazing and some are horrible. Am I depressed or bi-polar? What is wrong with me? I've been to my doctor and he said its anxiety, pills don't work though. Please help.

I suggest not to take anything, stop seeing this boy. Take long walks, at least a mile every day, eat right, as you might know sweets & fast food is not good for us, good luck.
Try to pinpoint the first time you noticed your mood swing and its cause. This will play a role in the increased frequency of them. Were you ill? Feeling low energy? Upset about something? Something is "rocking" your boat as a ship in troubled sea. Perhaps you're keeping a lot of things bottled up inside and not letting it out. Maybe even your arrangement with boyfriend is a bit much on you if there's other things going on too and that's causing anxiety.
My husband and I have recently learned that I am much more pleasant to be around when I am not using a hormone based birth control method...some were better than others but it seemed that every time I added hormones to my system I got super moody and the IQ of anyone around me dropped 20 points. (Something to consider.)
Thanks for your posts, um first of all, I don't take birth control so its not from that, and kffrmw88 thanks but I am not going to leave my boyfriend. He's the love of my life, I think it just had to do with me being insecure and thinking he didn't want to be with me or didn't find me attractive.
