Depressed and Don't Know Why

So I really didn't know where or how else to express this but this seems like a good place. To be honest, I have a great life. I absolutely love my job, have amazing friends and my home life is wonderful. I'm not to happy about being a little overweight but guess what? I'm hitting the gym and have already lost 5lbs. In the money department I'm doing okay, could always be better but I'm paying my bills and saving where I can.

Yesterday I woke up exhilarated and ready to take on the world. I had a great day at work and a good work out. This morning I woke up completely depressed and bummed out. I have no idea why this happening. I honestly have no reason to be upset or depressed yet I just wanted to crawl into a hole or be invisible all day long and just had this feeling of depressed all day long, even as I'm writing this.

This seems to happen to me a lot! Sometimes it's like the example above and sometimes it can be multiple times a day. I'll go for a couple hours feeling blessed and happy and then out of nowhere it goes away and I'm depressed and feel like I want to disappear. This can go back and forth several times in a day sometimes.

I'm not sure if I'm just nuts or if this is normal. Anyways, I figured I'd put up a post and see what you all have to say. If you're the same way, if you've gotten any good advice. Thanks for taking the time to read though.

This is the honest to god truth of why you are feeling depressed. Depression is NOT an emotion, it's a chemical imbalance in your brain, which is not your fault by any means. Read my post on what depression is in it's simplest form and you might be able to smack the crap out of it every time it rears itself in your life. It's in your head so to speak and you need to figure out how to battle it and fast, because I promise you it will get worse unless you start smacking back. One thing about depression is that it may never go away, but you can make it as troublesome as an ant on the counter once you learn to smack it around like it owes you money Wink
