not sure - February 25th 2010, 04:04 AM

Do any of you start of fine for a couple of months happy and then the next thing you know your going through depression again and you have hit rock bottom? Im there for the fourth time. Have any of you ever considered being hospitalized more than 1 time, or do you think that if you didnt get any better the first couple of times there is no use of going through it again? I think that right now the best place for me to be is in a hospital Ive done more bad than good to myself but I think thta Ive been there to many times. Anyways I just wanted someone else opinions.

I wish. Personally, I'm more on the bad-worse continuum. Do your symptoms/ periods of depression and normalcy seem to coincide with any outside factors? I.e. seasons, work/school, high-stress periods, presence/absence of supporting friends and family?

Yeah my depression comes in waves. I think points where I have high stress/anxiety makes me more depressed. I think if you feel you should go to a hospital, go. You really can't get help too many times so it's worth it. You should go now because things get worse and you end up in an emergency situation. Let me know if you ever need anything.

Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.

Hey there,

Yes, I have. Some months I am extremely happy and sometimes I am struggling from severe depression. I have been diagnosed with major depression and my therapist has told me that this is actually quite normal in the cycle, things can get better and worse. There are also other mental illnesses, such as Bipolar disorder, which can attribute to these mood swings. It's not just you who is experiencing this - you are certainly not alone.

I'm glad that you are considering hospitalisation if you think that is appropriate for you. It is good that you are thinking about keeping yourself safe because that's the most important thing for you right now. I'd definitely recommend talking to a medical professional about how you're feeling, it could really help you.

Take care.

Hey there,

As for being up and down, that's perfectly normal. Often I have patches of good amidst the hard times. It's just part of depression.

If you think being hospitalised would be safer for you right now then perhaps that is best. They will help you best you can and you will be safe whilst ever you are in there. Perhaps you could try to explain that what they are doing isn't really helping you and perhaps they could try something else?

PM me if you need anything else.
Take care.
