As I been told I have a mood disorder, I’m curious to know if depression makes you do weird things, like write tons of letters to people (or say a dead celebrity in my case) revealing everything about yourself… I think they may have been erotomanic delusions (not sexual, just romantic in nature though)… does this happen with depression too?

Anyway, I never saw Fred again.
Crying spells, spending a lot of time in bed, negativity, Low self esteem etc.
I had all of this, but in addition to that I was acting very weird.
Other than that, I don’t think much other than guilting people to make me happy.
