I Sometimes Get Depressed For No Reason It Seems

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 532 People

    I was coming home from my Dad's

    and for some reason I was depressed, idk why nothing bad happened, nothing was wrong. I heard depression comes randomly well unless you where mentally scarred. So I guess I got depression from nothing, just my brain. I went to sleep and when I woke up I felt happy. Idk why it...

    The Most Pathetic Reason To Be Depressed

    This didn't fit in another group as well as it fits here so I'm moving it. I wrote a story about how I wonder what's wrong with me that makes me so upset for such a pathetic reason. Here's what I wrote (in bold):You're going to laugh when you hear me say this. I'm depressed...

    Yep, every Monday. I'm turned off to the world.

    Might vary or longer through Sunday-Tuesday, but always round Monday. It's not always my first day of work, either, no consistency with Mondays, other than I can expect to lose my drive and hate and spite everything.

    Why?

    What I do know about getting depressed for no reason at all is definetly a chemical imbalance in the brain. Seratonin is one. I've taken a mild antidepressant for years, felt good like I don't need it anymore,, you know sick of taking medicine. "I just want to be normal...

    Hate It When That Happens.

    Worst feeling in the world, or one of them. Just after an outburst, I realize that it was far-fetched, exaggerated, inappropriate, extreme, angry and in some cases, destructive, though never violent towards another. I got a million stories and they are all a sentence or two long...

    For No Good Reason, At Least

    Yeah, just the other night. I was really depressed because I felt lonely. No big deal right? I just have to remember to unplug my heart at night. xD

    What's more depressing is the stupid ****

    people say. Being sad or depressed is not a choice, there's no on or off switch you can flip and suddenly your miraculous happy. I hate it when people always tell me there shouldn't be a reason for me to be sad or the " you're too pretty to be sad". What bullshit. They don't...

    Why?!?

    Why r my worst days when it's sunny and beautiful outside. When it's dark and gloomy I'm ok but when the sun hits me I get this overwhelming sense of depression hits me like a ton of bricks. Sometimes I feel like I can't move & I feel at peace with death.

    I've had a pretty ****** life,

    but the 3 years my life is as good as it gets with my foster parents. I don't live with my abusive and drug using dad and I don't live with my bitchy psycho mom, I should be really happy. I feel so depressed I really don't know why though.

    I can tell because I stop talking to people

    for weeks simply because I just don't have the energy. I also stop doing all my work and just sleep. I just feel bleh and unlike myself.

    I'd try to explain that it's not really

    negativity or sadness anymore, it's more just this detached, meaningless fog where you can't feel anything about anything - even the things you love, even fun things - and you're horribly bored and lonely Allie bosh
