Sad out of no where. - March 13th 2017, 05:56 PM

Does anybody else get randomly depressed.
I was sitting here and I was just fine and I feel like I got hit with a brick in my chest.
My counselor always tells me to stop, categorize the feelings and where they come from, but sometimes I just don't know.... which makes me feel even worse.
He also wants me to work on these coping "mechanisms," when I'm not depressed so that they do come to me when I'm anxious/depressed, but I keep finding it really hard to do....
I feel like all of this is just so pointless and I am always going to be like this.

Hi Cass,

I'm sorry that you're feeling this way. I want to remind you that you are definitely not alone. A lot of users here can probably relate to how you're feeling. I personally can definitely relate. I'm slightly different though as it's one of the symptoms of my Bipolar disorder.

That's the thing about depression is that you don't really know the reason as to why you're suddenly feeling the way you are. Have you noticed any type of pattern as to why you're feeling the way that you are? I know you have trouble figuring out exactly what is making you feel that way. Is it always in a certain place where you start feeling this way? Like when you're out with friends, alone in your room, with your family? Maybe if you figure that out then you might be able to pin point why you're feeling that way, and then maybe you can try to change things so that you don't become depressed in that environment? I'm not sure if this is possible for you, but you should definitely give it a try to see if it does work.

Maybe you can also make a list of things that make you happy, so when you're feeling depressed you can do something on your list to help you feel better. When I'm feeling depressed, I try and watch a movie or listen to music, maybe this can help you. I do hope that you start feeling better soon!

Stay Strong,

“You are braver than you believe,
stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think.”

Dear Cass,

Sorry to hear this... and I definitely can relate. I'm sometimes irrationally sad and then a smallest thing can trigger me, and after that I just can't stop crying.
What I do during times like that depends on the situation. If I feel angry and helpless I tend to draw stuff, particularly violent scenes. I know it may not sound that good to calm down but it really helps me vent. If I just feel immersely sad I switch off all the lights, lay in my bed, get my stuffed toys and hug them. After some time like that I'm usually able to calm down.
Another method I use is a comfort box. If you haven't heard of it, try to look it up.
I don't know what the weather's like where you live, but here in my place it's been gloomy since November. If your place is also bleak, remember that spring isn't too far away
I hope that I helped a tiny bit. If you'd like to talk, I'm always willing to do so.

Life begins where fear ends
