    For No Good Reason, At Least

    I can tell because I stop talking to people

    I successfully manage to push everyone out of

    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...

    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

    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 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...

    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.

    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...
