I Randomly Get Depressed

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 576 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'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...

    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...

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 don't think I have depression

    but its the easiest way to sum up today. It is just "meh" lack of emotion is pretty soul crushing, which is what seems to have happened as soon as it hit noon a few hours back. Just feels like a waste of a perfectly good day off, oh well hopefully things pick up soon!

    Like today. It's pretty dangerous to be alone,

    cuz you get absorbed in your own thoughts and they turn out to be really insane and psychotic. You have those thoughts running in your head, but you still feel emotionally empty and physically weak.
