I Randomly Get Depressed

    I've been randomly feeling depressed

    since I was in the third grade. At least that's the earliest that I can remember, and remember vividly. I locked myself in my room and put a bag over my head. That's the closest I've ever gotten to attempting... This feeling would come to me randomly, or something would just...

    the crazy in me keeps visiting my world like a

    bad house guest that won't leave. the person I truly am is afraid to fight and regain power over the crazy and so I find myself walking through the thick and painful darkness.

    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.

    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. :/

    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...

    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.

    I have my good days and my bad days.

    One day I'll wake up super happy and I'll curl my hair, pick out a cute outfit, and smile all day. Other days I won't shower, throw on random clothes, and pout because no one texted me all day and I don't feel loved.

    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....

    It's Weird.

    I was quite happy for most of today.... not completely happy but happier than normal... and now I'm depressed. I always just randomly get into a really bad mood. Small things always set it off, I can't help it. Especially at night times.. I'm happy one moment and then the next I...

    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.
