Depressed for no reason?? - September 3rd 2012, 04:01 AM

Ever since Thursday, I have been on an off depressed for no reason at all. I have so much to look forward too. I have no reason to be depressed. But I am for some reason. I feel like crying. I don't know why! I get random butterflies in my stomach too. It's so weird. I've only felt like this one other time in my life, and it went away quickly.

I'm also really happy at times, then I go back to being sad. Then happy again, and so on. Is it maybe because school started and I don't want to go back? I've never had a problem with going back to school. Ever. I am actually kind of excited to go back. My random depression usually triggers when I think about school. But I sort of like school. This is weird. What is happening with me? Is this just a one time thing and will it go away if I spend more time at school or is this something more? I've lost interest in the things I love to do. I just wanna lay in bed all day and sleep. I have a lot to look forward to, but I'm still depressed. Why??

It may potentially be genetics, depression can be passed down.
But I'm sure there is a reason, perhaps it is school, the stunning thought of it makes me spin my head, it's like awaiting horror, the thought gets into your mind and can certainly change your mood when you realize the ordeal of school.
It's pretty bs, I feel like just crying on the slightest of things as well, really, tears are a natural pain killer but I tell myself forget those, you can handle it. Just don't tug on too hard.

Many people have mixed feelings about going back to school. I know I did today! On one hand, I had a looot of free time I wanted to fill up, and I wanted to see my cohort mates again. On the other hand, I'll be taking a class that I'm not terribly excited about, and I'm bummed that I won't get to see my boyfriend as often. Keep in mind that I'm 23 - you're much younger, and it's common for someone your age to experience mood swings (yup, hormones are wonderful things!).

Here's the thing with depression (in the clinical sense): it generally has to last for longer and affect multiple areas of your life in a major way before it's worth being concerned about. On and off depression for less than a week? Eh, that's probably hormones. If you are still struggling for several weeks, though, and/or the symptoms rapidly become worse and you're thinking about hurting yourself, then it would be a good idea to talk to your regular doctor and ask for a referral to a psychological professional (I say regular doctor first so that medical causes can be ruled out before psychological causes are investigated).
