i often swing between intense feelings of self hatred to inflated sense of self, is this common for people with major depressive disorders ? or is this something i should be more concerned about ?

      If youve been diagnosed MDD go get evaluated for bipolar. There are two types and bipolar often goes missed because doctors never give a shit about mentioning mania when screening for depressive symptoms. Antidepressants can make bipolar worse. Document what youre going through. This isnt just a bipolar issue that can happen, can also happen with some personality disorders. Mania can feature inflated sense of self or over confidence and two disorders I know that feature it is bipolar and BPD. They work very differently in the brain but can look similar if you dont know how to spot why symptoms are occurring.

      I agree with Unlucky, I would see your Psychiatrist and get tested for bipolar disorder.
