I Randomly Get Depressed

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 363 People

    I am naturally a very happy

    and contained person, but sometimes with no reason at all I feel really down and feel depressed and I wont seem to get out of it easily. The thing is, I don't get sad I either am happy or depressed and that's the bad part.

    I'm having one of those weeks

    where nothing just seems to make me truly happy and laugh. True, there's been a lot of stress lately, but that's never knew to me. I have lots of things to be happy about otherwise. I have a wonderful boyfriend who loves me for who I am and is committed to this relationship and...

    I just wish I could be the hilarious & fun

    person I am with my friends. I have little friends now and even though that's a good thing, I do get lonely still. I have very loyal people by my side and it took a lot of pain & experience to get & keep them. That's why I'm here. I'm out the city (again) I'm in a new high...

    I do and I don't even know

    why sometimes. I'll be having a perfect conversation then out of no where I want to cry or I just have something hit me hard and I don't know what it is then I start shutting down. I don't know why.

    Sometimes I think so much

    that it's my mind is my own worst enemy. Usually when it's my girly time of the month, (sorry) I get super emotional and start thinking about everything at once. My family, friends, school, work, my relationship, my health, my apartment, money, etc. I just think about what is...

    I will get randomly depressed.

    I don't know why. I just get really sad. If something bad happens, I get panic attacks. It feels like someone is taking the air away from me. It can last for a day or months. it depends.it just randomly happens.

    how is it that one night you can be

    so close to disappearing and then, the next morning, the sun rises and you get out of bed and put a smile on your face and talk and laugh and it’s as though nothing happened…deep down it’s there, but it stays stuffed away…inappropriate for reality....

    I have days where I have ups

    and downs or just occurrences that make me depressed. It just really depends on the situation but most of the time I am usually happy or just have apathy. Memories that trigger me make me depressed but it depends on the memories though or the thoughts that trickle over my mind...

    Sometimes I just get depressed

    for no reason at all. I don't understand why. It's so strange. Sometimes I just feel like disappearing. It has just started and it is confusing me. I just feel stuck sometimes. :/

    It Bugs Me

    I'll be laughing one minute, and know everything is going to be ok, and just having a positive frame of mind.  And then boom a thought hits my mind, and suddenly, I'm back down again, and struggleing to get back up.

    It's not really random though.

    With my thought process i start thinking then it leads to thoughts of What I could do to mess things up. I don't want to do those things but with my luck....I could screw everything up.

    Always Combating

    It's getting too much of a hassle to deal with.  It interferes with my relationships with people.  The sheer amount of negativity I dish out on myself in front of people makes those around me feel ****** because they can't help.And if they're not feeling ****** from it, they...
