Depressed or not??

on Feb 03, 2009 @ 07:44 pm

I have had my share of problems in my life. And recently as soon as I get home from school/work I just want to go to sleep. But, I can’t keep doing this because I can’t sleep at night. Today, at school, I had to go because it was a important day for me but I ended up getting up with dark circles under my eyes and I was bitching non-stop. I wore my sweats to school and brought Kleenex and whatever I could find that would help. I ended up having random tears throughout the day without knowing why I was crying. I didn’t feel sick at all. I was just acting really weird. My parent kept asking me if I was depressed when I told them this and that I wanted to get a prescription from my doctor. What do you think is going on?

somethings bothering you... perhaps you're not admiting it to others, but anonymously think out loud to us ... whats bothering you? what recently happened that might trigger this?

before going on medication, try getting to the root of the problem and solving it there. we all go through what you described... think out loud if it helps do so anonymously to us here .. i don't think you need medication right now i think you need to rant and spill your guts and get a shoulder to cry on and some girl vent going ...

it could be depression but it could also be that you're under a lot of stress but since you're female and our cycles tend to make us all a little 'nuts' my first question is going to be: is it that time of the month for you?

If it is then that's probably what's causing it, I know I get super emotional for no reason when it's my time.

If not I'd start evaluating your stress levels and if you find them high go through your schedule and push things that can be pushed around to make some 'quiet time' for yourself at least three times a week.

If it isn't stress and you still can't figure it out, give your doctor a call and you can work with him/her to find the root of the problem and what to do about it. I don't suggest diving straight into the medication side of things as that might not be what you need and you really don't want to be taking medication if you don't actually need them.

I suffer from hereditary depression, insomnia and a few other ailments that are irrelevant to this topic so I feel for you. It makes you feel a little bonkers and sometimes it can even make you feel ashamed as you just don't feel 'right'. But you aren't alone, not by a long shot so don't fret too much as that causes extra stress.

The best thing to do is evaluate, spend some quality time with yourself filled with things you enjoy that relax you and then if push comes to shove talk to your doctor and see what can be done.

I'm not the best at explaining these things but I hope I helped a little bit and I hope you sort this out and get back to your norm soon and just in case you need it, here's a hug ****HUG**** from me to you!
