Im a bit confused with this. I can randomly get extremely sad and shut put everyone except for adults. I wont talk to anyone. I wont look at anyone. I just stare into space. I've been doing this for about 3 days at a time, and for about almost a year now. I was just in the depression section of this site. I took the Zung self-rating scale test. and I got a 71. It says anything higher then 50. TAlk to my physician. But im not sure if i should or not. And advice?
Confused a bit
I think it could well be depression, or something related, like cyclothymia. I think you definitely should talk to a doctor or a counsellor and explore it.
Sounds like What ineligble said or Bipolar disorde, especially if it lasts two days or more without being on drugs or alcohol.
Doesn't sound like cyclothymia or bipolar disorder, since she didn't mention anything that would give the impression of manic episodes.It could very well be depression and I think it sounds like talking to a professional would probably be a good idea.
