    I have a good family, a car, a little bit of money, some friends, a hot girlfriend, freedom, a good upbringing, I'm good looking yet I'm depressed. :sadwavey:

    I don't get it. It comes and goes. The last 2 mornings I've woken up and just felt like dying. I laid in bed for 4 hours today thinking, wishing I were dead or something.. Later in the day I felt normal as I do now.. Sometimes I feel great, excited, etc.. It's like when I'm with my Gf I'm really happy but as soon as I leave her house I get depressed even if the night went really well, but I don't think it's because I miss her or anything cause we haven't been dating long.. I don't know what it is.. I think something is wrong with my brain instead of my problems coming from situation/eviroment..

    Is there a mild way of being bi-polar? I don't have crazy mood swings but I do have them.. I also sometimes get pissed, it's rare but some days I'm just raging mad.. For no reason I feel this way..

    The anger must stem from somewhere... past issues?
     
  3. Well certainly depression comes in many forms. You don't have to have a negative situation or poor environment to suffer from depression. It could be any number of things leading to it. Seeing a doctor, or a specialist who works in psychiatrics or psychology could be useful in determining the source. It could be past events, past exposure to a substance or infectious agent. It could be any number of things. It is not something I could figure out from here.

    I have so much built up anger....alot of it comes from elementary school and now alot of it comes from my mom. I cant stand anyone more than I do her.

    I have no past issues, nothing traumatic or painful has ever really happened in my life..
    It seems as though the last few years I've been depressed especially in the winter. I know of SAD but I don't know if that's the problem or not..
    It sucks. The only cure I have is to constantly be doing something, even if I'm out at a store I'm feeling normal. If I'm sitting at home it starts building to the point where I just wish it was bedtime so I can waste another night and try again in the morning..
     
  6. It very well may be the problem. A doctor or specialist can help verify and narrow down the possibilities and help you find a resolution.

    I know the feeling. You're not alone out there. Some days I'll be really upbeat and happy, while other days, for no explicable reason, I feel really sad and depressed. To the point that I sometimes don't even leave my apartment for the whole weekend. Only work gets me out of my place.

    Could be SAD.... a close friend of mine goes to tanning salons daily to get more UV which helps.

    She lives in Southern CA as well if that means anything.

    I have a lot going and if you search the archives here my depression stories are legendary. Hard to comprehend why we sometimes feel how we do but often ther'es no rhyme or reason to it.

    I think what you really lack in your life is love, i don't think your giving enough of it away to others to truelly make yourself feel happy about who you are and what you do. I seriously advice you(no joke) to go out and volenteer, go help people. It will make you meet new people, and make you happy =)

    That sounds exactly like the way I felt/feel. I have nothing to be unhappy about, but sometimes I am just despondent and feel hopeless. I was happy when I was with my boyfriend but depressed otherwise.

    See a psychiatrist. You might be depressed, or something else. I was diagnosed with clinical major depression. It is characterized by depression independent of situational conditions, but rather from biological factors.

    How old are you? If you are still a teenager, it could be hormone levels swinging around on you. High school/college age seems to be a tough time with major decisions to be made and a world you're not ready to conquer is lurking around the corner.

    this is so me it's almost scary [​IMG]
    anyway man, i was in pretty much the same position as you....got on some SSRI's and have felt alot better since.don't believe all the negative shit you hear about meds, with me they helped alot and i had no side-effects except some delyed orgasms which really didn't bother me too much.i'd suggest you see a doctor and tell him about your problems.It's not uncommon for people to be depressed even though they really don't have a good "reason" for it.

    I agree with those that say you should see someone, whether it be a doctor or psychiatrist I do not know. What I do suggest is that in the meantime document everything down in a daily journal. By everything I am not just talking about your lows and depressed times but also your high and happy times as well. This will give whoever you see a big picture rather than just focusing on one end of the spectrum.

    I kept a journel at one point and it was stupid. It was full of stuff like. I wake up, dont feel like getting up going to school even though I have been laying here for an hour. And Girlfriend did something to make me feel bad. Also, I am really tired today. Over and Over. With a few days that were like, I feel great.
