Recently i have been extremely down even after a really good day. It's mostly in the evening and when i go to bed i just get the urge to cry that i cannot fight. I end up crying myself to sleep most nights now especially in the last week. I feel down and cant make an effort to do anything to get out of it, i just slowly spiral downwards. I feel like i need someone to bring me out of it as i cannot do it myself but then i just push everyone away and dont want to talk. It's ruining things from me and i dont want to end up clinically depressed.
If anyone has any advice it would be gratefully recieved!
Depression tends to be at it's worst in the early in the morning and late at night, probably due to tiredness. They say that should symptoms of depression remain for a week O'r more then that's when you should seek help. I have been depressed for years but only went to the dr about it recently because I had finally had enough.
I cant seem to pinpoint a reason or a start to it - when i'm busy i tend to not feel it and around people that i have to make an effort (for example work friends) i feel ok but when i'm home around family or no one i just drop. I feel down and dont really have a reason for it. I know i am experiencing some relationship problems right now but this kinda goes deeper than that. I have a nice life, am fairly successful as far as studies go and have a pretty decent home life. I'm only young which i may not have pointed out - 17. I'm hoping it will pass but so far i cant see an end to it, i get home every day and that's it for the evening. I cant actually stop the tears and that's incredibly depressing in itself. Am i just hormonal or is it something more?
I'm much happier in myself than i ever used to be - he has given me a lot of confidence in both my physical self and mental self. I know the relationship problems are a factor in this but i need to sort out my sensitivity to being depressed over everything before i can sort the relationship. But also applies vice versa leading me into a vicous circle of which one i can sort first...
To be honest i'd never thought of it that way, you might be right. I first met him just after recovering from a bad breakup and maybe that wasn't the time, i never got the time to get used to being alone. Now, i absolutely hate it and need to feel loved. Possibly the reason? If so, how do i stop that need or do i not have to?
It's definately not to do with family love because i have a very loving family, but i like to have someone else there that i can come home to and tell about my day and that will care for me. And yeah, it's been there a while - i hate to be alone and have done since the young age of becoming interested in guys in the first place!
Not in the same way, it's not that kind of affection i'm after. It's more someone that i can sit and chat to and laugh with every day without care and have someone who think's i'm special (WOW this is sounding vain!). Although i talk to my family it's not quite the same.

What do you mean "without care" and don't you feel special just as you are? You are not sounding vain. Being honest is how you are going to understand yourself and then fix what is causing you distress.
