How am I feeling? Why am I depressed?

After having a pretty depressing week I thought I'd share my week on this board and read through some of the communities postings to see if anyone feels the same way I do.

I am 27, male, recently graduated with my MBA and have a good job. I've recently have just been having feelings of being directionless, lack of motivation, insomnia and social withdrawal. So far to the point that this last week of work I called in every-single day because I just didn't feel motivated to go in. I more or less withdraw from the world, only even leaving my room when my roommates had gone to work - but it doesn't feel like I'm motivated by "sadness" it's almost been an adventure.

It seems that I feel like I through bouts of extremes, doing really well and positive for weeks and then moments or extended periods where I just want to be alone and am upset with my life.

I see a therapist every few months who has me on Paxil for what I thought was anxiety and treatment for ADHD which has really improved my work performance. From what I read online it almost sounds like I have symptoms consistent with bipolar disorder. Does any share any type of similar experiences?

It does sound like you might be bi-polar.

I'm not an expert in any way, shape, or form, but you should probably see your therapist more often. And you should see a psychiatrist for an official diagnosis. Once you get a handle on what's really going on, you can get on the right meds.

Best of luck!
