      “It’s like a giant wave,” says Chris. “For me it’s like this: I get irritated, I blow up, I get out of control, I lose my mind on someone I love or appreciate, and then I feel guilty. And then the guilt just doesn’t seem to lift and I get depressed. Like, ‘am I ever going to get out of this? Is this really who I am?’

      And other things compound it as well, as if you're not dealing with so much already. I usually call it 'tidal wave'. Sigh. The familiar, abysmal cycle, my personal prison.
