I know when I get on an irregular sleeping schedule (I suffer from insomnia, so it happens quite regularly), my moods tend to get wacky, also.

I've talked to a few friends and they've told me that the problem with mental health issues, is that a lot of the disorders have overlapping symptoms. This makes it very hard to know exactly what you have, and what is wrong with you. So you could look at the symptoms for bipolar disorder and say you have that, then look at borderline personality disorder and think you have that.
I was on a lot of caffeine, I would have 2 or 3 redbulls a day plus alot of soda, and then hot tea. I'm think that's the reason for my extreme difference in moods, so I've been trying to cut out caffeine all together and not be dehydrated all the time.
My best friend thinks I may have borderline personality disorder. When I looked up the symptoms for Bipolar, i had immediately assumed that's what I had, but then she said that i could also have that and I looked it up and I thought that's what i had as well. I'm not saying you have either of those, those are just examples. There are other disorders that could be related to you, I just don't want you to jump ahead of yourself and assume you have something. It takes a professional to know what is wrong for something like this, and we know that even the professionals get it wrong at times.

Seems kinda random but it happens at least some time during the week where I'll feel just like complete shit and even feel like hurting myself at times, however I have always restrained from that.

I've never actually wanted to actively hurt myself when I've felt depressed and I've felt pretty bad at times so that's probably not something you want to ignore.
How long has this been going on? Are you sleeping well?

This is the signal that you should tell your doctor about it. You don't have to work against this alone. Of course you have us here, but you should get your doctor looking into it too.
