depressed don't know exactly why!

I am going through one of my spells again. There are time were I do really well for about 2 weeks then I go back to my pattern again. I hate this feeling. Its usually toward the late afternoon and early evening and through out the evening. First im tired then in the zone. I get really depressed as though my life is going to end right at that moment. Feel like there is no accomplishment, sad, frustrated and even sick to the stomach. I also have this fear of dying. I don't think I started thinking of something to start this thinking process. I just hate it. Sometimes it makes me feel like I am dreaming. I feel like I am loosing my mind and going insane.

Again I probably have posted this a millions times before, just need to vent again! Does anyone feel like this? I'm not even taking meds and I get like this. It gets scary at times!

Re: depressed don't know exactly why!

I understand how you feel... I have been through the same thing. Finally, about 3 weeks ago I was so tired of continuing to end up in the same black hole that I gave in to my therapist's recommendation to try antidepressants.

Paxil made me zombie-like in the past and made me gain weight........ so I was concerned about that. I am on Wellbutrin, and so far so good. I have still had a few sad days, but I have noticed myself doing more/procrastinating less, and generally being better to myself.

Maybe you should try journaling to see what your true issue(s) are...... maybe there is a pattern to your feelings, like being alone, spending money, being around certain negative people, etc.

Either way, I hope you feel better. I have certainly been there. You're not crazy either!

Yep, I used to get that way.

I'm trying anti-depressants AGAIN. Each time the doctor would get me to try an anti-depressant I'd have bad side-effects, blame him, and not see him for years after stopping the medication.

I recently learnt that there is no way a doctor will know if:
1.) you actually have chronic clinical depression
2.) which anti-depressant will work for you (if any)
3.) you'll have side effects and how long those side effects will last

Your always a guinea-pig when it comes to treatment for depression. Sometimes you don't actually need medication, only therapy such as CBT.

This is not as bad as it sounds. You have to take responsibility for your own treatment as your the only one who is feeling your personal pain.

Re: depressed don't know exactly why!

Quarter life crisis? I've never heard of that but I had my first major depression when I was 26. So I guess there is some credence to it. Wow did that suck.

The most important thing to do is to get help. Quick. Id that you have a problem and then get help. It works. Trust me. I've been through a boat load of ***** in my life and have pulled through it.

Good luck.

Re: depressed don't know exactly why!

good god, you sound like a page from my diary I get depressed at the same times..feel energetic, motivated in the morning and get depressed later on, and frequently feel like I'm going crazy...even if I'm not depressed. But I don't think we're really crazy, so why do we feel this way?
I think sometimes it's a physical problem but when I think about the external problems I have I consider it could be my sad life making me feel this way...who knows.

Re: depressed don't know exactly why!

Thanks for the replies took a while to get to them. My husband is always on the computer. In the last week I have been doing okay except on Friday when my car got stolen. But, I did get it back (not in good driving condition)! At least its back! I have been going to the casino with my mom and my mom is letting me use her money to gamble with. For some reason after that day, I was so energetic and relaxed. A co-worker pointed out that it could be that I had no worries or consequences at that time and I just needed something like that! Anyways, this could be why I am stress and not knowing why. I guess Iím stressed at some kind of subconscious level!
