erratic moods

I'm struggling with life. I feel like I'm emotionally unstable, I have erratic mood swings and can sway from being happy and fine to angry/depressed in seconds by something that shouldn't effect me that way, It's like something snaps inside me. I spend a lot of my time feeling depressed, empty, lonely and wanting to run away. I'm really struggling and don't know what to do. Although my moods are mostly low I can swing back to feeling okay just as quick but it never seems to last long.
Since my moods are so erratic I struggle with decision making, one minute I'm passionate about something and the next I'm not interested. The same goes for my relationships with others, I either think they're amazing or they're horrible people. I'm currently in a relationship and I am spending half of my time wanting to end it and the other half worshipping him and clinging on. I don't feel like I have the right thought process to end it because of how quick I swing between the two extremes.
I don't really know why I'm writing this, I just feel so lost and have no one to talk to, I hate the way I am.

It is OK to be emotionally unstable if that is what you are. I am not stable and blow over the top for no readily apparant reason.. Being like I am does not make life easy.

The issue then becomes how to recognise it and deal with it. There are various meds that can help. There is also counciling etc... Can I suggest you see your GP as a starting point...
