I have a problem. I am irritable most of the time. I don’t like being around other people because of this flaw. I don’t like snapping at others and biting their heads off, so to speak.

Depression

Having Bipolar I have dealt with depression many times. It is loaded with worthlessness, lots of tears and irritability.
