What the heck is wrong with me?

  • K, here goes, I have been totally reluctant to post about this particular problem, and have been avoiding this site for a little while now. I am having a lot of problems sleeping, and am walking around with a terrible feeling in the pit of my stomach all the time. I am crying constantly, for no good reason at all. I break into tears in the middle of class, and when I am playing with my daughter. At first I thought it was because my boyfriend recently moved away, but it was the same when he came home for two weeks for a visit. I am always feeling this anxious feeling. I should mention that my mother is Bi-polar, and her four sisters are all on some sort of anti-depressant. Is it my destiny to be medicated, or am I just over-reacting? My life is going pretty well, (I make straight A's in university, and my daughter is terrific) but I still can't seem to snap out of this funk. SO I guess my question is....am I going crazy, or am I just in a bit of a slump? By the way, this has been going on for a couple of months now.

    Life is great, be happy......You're here.


  • It does sound like depression. Perhaps you just need some medication for a while to break the cycle and get you back to normal.
