depresson? - August 29th 2010, 12:28 AM

so basically I'm fairly sure I show a lot of signs of clinical depression and I don't know who to turn to.

-I get sad and upset for minor things or for no reason at all for long periods of time (days or weeks)
-I have trouble sleeping at night sometimes. (it'll last for 3-4 days and then go away for a week or two)
-I act all happy and stuff at school but the second I get home I'm home alone and pissed off all the time. Basically, whenever I'm home, I'm really mad or upset for no reason whatsoever.
-other times I'm just pissed off for no reason no matter where I am.
-sometimes I think about killing myself. not really going to do so, but sometimes I think it's a good idea and then wonder about how to do so, realize I lack the means, and go back to moping.
-I always feel like I'm under pressure.
-for the last 8 months or so, I've had spells of dizziness that seem to be for no reason.

But sometimes I'm really happy and just fine. I don't know. Do I seem depressed? Should I get help? There was a time when I knew I needed help but I have no one to turn to and didn't really get it. Now I feel the same way, but I don't want to be a downer and dump this all on someone.


I either feel like no one cares, and that I should be breaking things, and that everything is falling apart, or that everything is great, and I can do anything, and I really do have friends.

I'm stuck halfway in between.

You may be depressed.
Additional things to look out for:

Loss of Energy
Lack of interest in things you normally would enjoy

However these symptoms could also fit in with other psychological disorders. Even anxiety can spawn depression-like symptoms. See a psychiatrist or a doctor to get a professional diagnosis and treatment plan.

I would write down everything you experience with it. Additionally I would try to keep a journal (which include events and emotions) from now until you decide to see a professional. Journaling may help you to feel better about some things. It will also help your psychiatrist/doctor treat you better. If you're anything like me you may forget a few key details after waiting in that office for too long.

Oh and to add (I always forget) I used to SH and still do sometimes and then forget about it.

I try to keep a journal, so thank you for your advice I haven't written in a while but I'll try to start up again. Writing did always make me feel better. Thanks, I'll keep an eye out on myself.
