****Trigger Warning****

I have these really crazy mood swings sometimes... is that normal? Like, I'll be rocking back and forth in my chair unable to sit still or focus on schoolwork bc I keep having thoughts like "bathtubs are just reverse boats," "zero has infinite factors," "why do we say knives instead of knifes but Smurfs instead of Smurves," just the randomest things, and then in the next class feel to tired to think anything at all, let alone random distracting thoughts. I freak myself out sometimes, how random and extreme the switches are, or I get a little scared if I'm in either phase for multiple days on end. The thing is, I have other depressed/suicidal friends (come to think of it, most if not all of my friends fit in to one or both categories) and they don't appear to have these swings at all! Can anyone else here relate? It's kinda exhausting trying to fight just to focus almost every day. I think I'd feel better if I knew someone else in this universe is like me in some small way... no one is too much like me, I'm a very... unique, sure let's go with that... person. Whew, that was long winded, sorry.

Hormones in teens can be brutal. It is very normal. That is where the mood swings are coming from I would say. When I was a teen I had the whatever, I don't care attitude. On top of the hormones I had family problems which made me a horrible person. It sounds to me like you might be bored of the subject you're in. Maybe try to focus on the teacher or the assignment by telling yourself to stop it and focus, you have to be in control of that inner voice. I have to do this to for other kinds of thoughts I have. It works most of the time. Just take your thoughts away from that voice and put your thoughts on your school work, or at least try to. These things and feeling you are going through I promise you are only temporary and one small thing or one person can make all the difference in the world. Suicide is permanent, you can't come back, you can't change your life afterward. But living you can always change anything with enough determination. I hope it gets better!

I know it seems dumb to ask, but why DO we say Smurfs instead of Smurves? That's been bothering me for a while now and I can't figure it out... sorry, random thoughts are back with a vengeance.
