    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...

    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. :/

    I'll be having a good conversation with my

    friend and have no bad thoughts then BAM! Like a train a bad thought hits me so hard I sometimes start to cry. I try to continue acting happy but It doesn't always work.

    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 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 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.

    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.

    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...

    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 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...
