My depression is coming and going

Posted , 8 users are following.

Is this normal for depression I suppose iv always had a little depression but then full blown felt I could not do anything could not laugh smile or anything had to pretend to smile inside I was really hating myself and I stopped everything I enjoyed /nausea and wasn't eating sleeping constantly throughout the day insombia on the night ect ect and suicidal thoughts bouts of crying for no reason and I was diagnosed with depression anyways now I feel me again for the time been but I know any day I can go on and hit a low again is this normal it's like yo yo ! And I don't know if I have another problem because I already have health anxiety but does anybody else feel there depression yoyo as your coming out of it ?

Sorry if this does not make much sense I'm confused as to what's going on with me as one min I feel fine the next minute I hate everything again and just don't feel me

    hi steph what you are experiencing is normal for someone suffering from depression ! have you been to your doctor about how you feel ?if you have what did they.give you for depression ! i had bouts of crying and the doctor gave me quetiapine which has made a difference ! the feeling of being up and down at times is usual in someone with depression ! please if youve not already done so go to see your doctor and i wish you all the best in you getting better ! david

      You wont be doing your doctors head in. They would prefer you were there to be treated that to have to deal with any consequences. GP get heavily scrutinised and if a person heaven forbid attempts something silly and they end up in hospital or worse than that, the hospital and authorities review visit and doctors notes.

      You feel your doing their heads in cause your depressed which in trun can create paranoia. And its a natural thing so you dont need to worry that its just you, we all get paranoid, but that the depression allow your mind to see the negatives in everything. for example if I said to you I email you tommorrow and didnt you proably think negative things I suspect . If it was a close friend it would be even worse still to th poitn you might question whats wrong, what have I done. Bt the really reason could be something simple.

    Hi stephx, i think alot of us here could relate to 'wearing a mask'. Do you have anybody at home to talk to who could listen? If family route isn't the way to go in making the first step, then i suggest you see your gp and talk with them about it, i know the yoyo effect very well myself, it makes you exhausted especially when you can't natrually get to sleep. Book an appointment with gp and telling them you're struggling at the moment, if you take meds they miht look at changing them for you. Hope you are feeling a bit better, you can get through this, Nick.

      Hi Stephx, how are you feeling? It sounds like you and you dr know that you have sensitivity issue when it comes to medicine, regarding support sometimes its hard those close by to understand, have you looked into groups associated with depression/ mental health that do ther things such as exercise/ cratfs/ outings? Ask the people who do your CBT if they know of any with peeps who go who are in similar cicrumstance, you might meet people who are able to understand, and it also might help you have something to look forward to smile Nick
