Depressive episodes

Posted , 2 users are following.

I keep having depressive episodes. Tbh I've never really been the happiest person for as long as I can remember (im 17). But lately seem to be having these depressive episodes where I am crying all day and I don't know why, I cannot work and feel alone and that no one understands. I also have thoughts of killing myself and my mum because she dosent understand me and calls me an attention seeker. I'm not Always depressed but wouldn't particularly say I'm always as happy as other people. I also experience anxiety and am extremely self concious and most of the time have no self esteem. After my depressive episode I can't soon become happy again and it's really confusing. I just don't feel like my moods are healthy. Sometimes though I can be really quite happy and have confidence and quite high self esteem which is also confusing. Am I over reacting like my parents say or could there really be something wrong?

      No because I feel stupid and like I'm their time because I'm not Always depressed however can be irritable and generally moody a lot of the time. Is this anything to do with the depression or do I have to be sad all the time
