I am going crazy
O.k. I need help. I need ti know what i can take to relax. I get so upset about things i want to hit people or swear at them. I am not a agressive person, it's just the last 5 months or so and the last 2 weeks has been hell. I hate everyone and everything. Everyone irritates me. Something small .... please help i feel like i just want to walk out of my life. I do not have Med.aid, so i can not afford to see a shrink or get anti depressants.

Hello lola, OK, so you're not going crazy ( or you wouldn't be brilliant enough to post your question here !). But it feels bad, I hear that. The main problem you describe sounds like extreme irritability, which could relate to Depression or anxiety/stress, or both. Why not try to arrange to see a GP, or a shrink through the major local state/provincial hospital, or at the Dept of Psychiatry at your nearest medical school ?
And work on plans to reduce the stress you're encountering, which sounds like much of it is at home --- discuss it with your bf, who needs to reduce the workload and help to do the chores. He must care for himself and not expect you to do so much for him, or for his friends. Doing so would relieve the pressure on you, and you'd be even more fun to be around.
