an somebody with depression still a times feel pretty good and laugh and have a fun tim with friends, but then later feel the same agian. Sort of Mood swingish one minute theyre doing o then the next there right back where they started? Is it common to feel like its hard 2 start talking 2 someone when you have depression but once you start you end up feeling pretty good?thanks
Yes, mood swings can be common. There are conditions like cyclothymia that are charcterised by mood swings.I find if I'm down i don't want to talk to anyone or do anything, but if I do I feel a lot better.
Do u find that u can still laugh at things that are funny or smile around friends if you depression. Cuase I smile and laugh it just feels a little hallow. I'm worried becuase soetmes I feel alright not great, but ten someties liek when I wake up in the morning I feel awfull.
Someone who suffers from depression doesn't necessarily always feel upset. I've been diagnosed, yet I still have a good time and can forget I have depression alot with my friends and around those I love. I know the "hollow" feeling you're describing -- it's as if you can't be happy to your full extent.
And of course, the depression lingers around somewhere. Sometimes it comes to view, sometimes it's hidden for awhile. :wink:
