ive suffered with depression for 7 years now and im on Prozac atm but lately ive just been so irritable I feel angry inside and everything and everyone is annoying me. I don't want to be a bitch to ppl especially my boyfriend but hes just annoying me and we live in a tiny flat so time alone isn't really going to happen and if I say I want time alone he will take it personally like he will constantly ask me whats wrong and what he has done wrong and I really cant be bothered talking to anyone people are doing my head in. am I the only one who gets like this?

When I'm in the middle of a mood episode, one of the hard things for me is explaining to people that I'm really not angry, sad, or annoyed with an individual person, place, or thing.  I was already predisposed to a certain feeling and it just happened to latch on to whatever was near and precipitated around that person, place, or thing.  I have to explain to people, that I don't necessarily need a reason to be sad, angry, energetic, or other feeling, they can just happen all by themselves.

Yeah well I am the same way......I have mood swings that either go from me being completely normal or happpy to being beligerantly angry or very depressed. People always wonder if I have something or someone specific on my mind, and most of the time the answer to that is no. Here recently though I can avoid these types of situations most of the time if I just get the proper amount of sleep and stay on schedule with all my medicines.

This is a perfect way of describing why we behave the way we do! Thanks for this- can I quote you? You put it so eloquently and succinctly.  :)

The head of my legal department advises me that they most likely wouldn't consider such an act actionable as the climate now stands.  I think this means you should feel free to say whatever you want. (But they are a bunch of weaselly lawyers, so I wouldn't trust them too much.)

This happens to me all the time.  I have to have a lot of alone time or my mind would go nuts and I would be so stressed out. 

 

Have you tried other medications?  Maybe there is something out there that would lessen the anger and irritability.

I was irritable and agitated to an extreme degree when my depression was at its worst.

 

Klonopin was great for this, but I understand it is more difficult in the UK to get a benzo script.

 

I had trial of Risperdal, which killed irritability and agitation, but unfortunately left me feeling hollow.

 

SSRIs are supposed to be good for irritability. You have been on Prozac for a long time. Maybe it's time to switch. Zoloft worked well for me.
