I've never clinically been diagnosed with depression, however I'm convinced I have it. I will wake up one day and be depressed, not knowing why, after getting horrible sleep the night before. I can barely get through the day without feeling like I want to cry at least once but I still have yet to understand why this is going on. I used to cut, but I've broken away from that habit.Out of no where I become very irritable and if any one person says something to me I will blow up on them for not doing anything at all. I can't make my own decisions, and I feel like whenever I wake up on those select days (I feel perfectly normal on other days) I feel like I have no purpose and that no matter what I do I'm still not going to make any difference to anybody. I wake up numerous times in the night, not just from bad dreams but other times I just can't sleep.Does this sound like I have depression - should I get it treated, or go to a doctor? Is there anything else this could be?Thanks for your help. M.
Lack of sleep seems to be a factor to your moods/depression.....or am I just reading your post wrong?Maybe talking to a doctor or someone might help, I mean what harm can it do anyway....You also don't say what age you are which would be a factor i think in how you are feeling......
