    It's common and called Diurnal Variation Depression. It's because in the morning you know you have a full day ahead of you and at night the day is almost done. I feel almost normal by midnight. In the morning I feel suicidal. I even called a suicide Prevention hotline on Friday. It really sucks having these thoughts and sometimes I just want to curl up and die.

    dont think it ever goes 100 percent but i think you learn how to handle it and even put it in the back of the mind,once you have been realy depressed i think it lingers for ever as that becomes your aspect of being or having a down day
