Hi my name is Tierra,
At random times of the day I feel sad, depressed, suicidal, i feel the urge to kill and angry. How can I deal with this and what may be the cause of this sudden change in behavior.

    Hi Tierra, it is important that you seek help from a professional. See the contacts in this blog, or perhaps search for a local therapist/mental health professional. Best wishes.
