i relate to this question loads.i suffer depression and i isolate,which is worse,all i do is sleep,i never want to be in waking life.my pain dies when i go asleep.ive done it for so long it has become a habit or addiction.i never thought there could ever be someone else out there who sleeps as much as me.... now i carry alot of guilt through my sleeping addiction.
yes.. that is one of the symptoms.
Sleep? Not really. I rather like the gloom of a rainy day. I just want the depression to go away (but it never does).
No, I want to get out & burn up my emotions. Shopping therapy is a good thing.
I have looked into the subject of depression and it's not a fixed state of mind; the condition is fluid, it waxes and wanes. From my understanding depression causes sufferers to either feel sleepy or desire to sleep as a part of the depression.<br />
Anyone can go through bouts of depression and it doesn't have to be a diagnosed depressed person and I have had times of feeling really down and wanted nothing other than to sleep. I think it's a natural state of being for those times we are depressed. I can certainly see how it could be said to be beneficial to sleep through severe bouts; it helps to rest the mind and helps us to unwind and relax when we are feeling down. Consider it being the mind telling the body it wants to rest?<br />
That's what I think ... (IMHO) :-)<br />
(I hope you are back on form soon!)<br />
For sure- it's easier to "cope", when I can just sleep thru it.
I dont get depressed,but when i get down i tend to sit around,lazy,and of course i dont eat.but normally its only a couple of hours.
I dread waking up
no, i want to slash and burn
Yes, thats what I like to do so I don't have to listen to everything thats going around in my head, or I think I would go crazy.
