This is very hard to describe. It is almost a feeling of complete hopelessness and loneliness. I often cry myself to sleep, but about no particular thing. I've been thinking very hard about this, and it seems this happens any time that I am not with people talking, or extensively thinking. It is always at night once I am alone and not doing anything, or when i am listening to music. Any type of music at all. Even AC/DC, but I find that the more i like the song, the more i get sad, and the faster. But if I'm feeling this way, then start talking to someone (my theory is now I'm using my brain more and getting rid of thoughts), I snap out of it. I have always been extremely bright, a solid IQ of 150, and I constantly have to be doing something that involves thinking; playing with things, tapping, moving... I've been to countless doctors and psychiatrists, my blood count is normal and i do not have depression or anything. Is this a sleeping disorder? I really need help
It seems that you are feeling quite low and sad and unable to find a reason for that.
The problem may well lie with thinking too much about things that really should not matter in routine life. This happens especially with people who have high intellect.
My advice would be to seek the help of a psychologist, get a few therapeutic sessions, take a break, change your routine, adopt a new hobby and don't be alone if possible. Vent out everything to your near and dear ones, do not pack emotions inside you and you may very well be a new person.
