    Glad to hear you're working through it. I'm jealous of how much sleep you get

    I feel you. I haven't consulted any specialist yet, but I've been 'battling' with it for almost 4 years now. I even reach to the point of indifference and seclusion. Now, I'm doing my best to hold onto my dream, to keep doing my hobby, and to accept the 'me' who hates herself. I think recognizing the problem, and doing something to solve it is already a large step. Keep up the good work!

    Wasn't sure how to write this not matter how much I tried, but being depressed sucks in the most general term I can think of. The feelings of being lost and emptiness that one can feel is something... numbing I sadly I am having problems myself at this moment. But I have been trying to battle it. I was ones put on antidepressants, but only put things to the back of my mind. Till about two years ago where I almost had a complete mental break down. I couldn't find out why I felt not myself or a term I can't think of at this moment. I had to move back with my parents as I started to try and fix myself. At first it was me trying everything I could to feel stable. But for someone like me who never had anything stable in the past I didn't have much to go on, so I needed to find something to start from. Where yes I know what I am writing doesn't have a lot of subtext, I just don't want to go into great details. Best way to put it is the my past was and still is hunting me. I have slowly been working on facing everything that went on in my life and trying to accept it all. But at times I don't know what to do because I feel like somethings are twisted. I learned recently I learned that I didn't know the meaning of love in both respects (family, lover). But I am doing my damnedest to not let it stop me as hard as it is at times. But anyways I went of on a tangent, I feel like holding yourself back from your feeling or things you want or want to do isn't good for you, and should do what you want to do within reason. If there is something you have thought of doing or want to try go for it you never know what can become of it!

    Major difference is how often you feel that way, like any illness, you can have occasional symptoms that point to something serious, and it's only diagnosed as such when the symptoms persist for a while.

    Yeah, there are also times when I have felt very depressed but not clinically depressed, thank goodness. But sometimes I can barely fall asleep and when I do I don't wanna get out of bed and I feel like there's nothing worth doing.

    Everyone probably goes through this at some points in their life.

    You're still in a better condition than i am, really....
    My case, even worse. Go to school everyday, always have someone stalk my every single activity at school( and up till now that dark part was revealed by my parents and close friend). Try your best to make thing better, but instead, receive insult and mockery; try to talk to my parents about the problem i can't solve, and instead of that, they said" Solve it yourself" kind of talk, not even left any hint. Try to early warning something that will happen and all they do is laughing at my effort, untill it ACTUALLY HAPPEN, and blame me for not stoping them. Most of my friend in school only befriend me for their own gain in study( for greater score), and that's it, no free time sharing hobbies, no weekend hang out or whatever. And even going out to do something outside the house, i have to ask for premision EVERY. SINGLE. TIME regardless that is for myself or for my class/ club, and RARELY they give me premission( and it always come with someone supervise me, limited my spending anf always have to return home ASAP).
    Some time, i even think like" why do i live here for if i'm being watch like a lab rat in an experiments?" kind of think. And even sometime, i even think about suicide, and in fact, i even think they will laugh at me for they have a burden remove itself from them....
    So, my friend, at least, you're still in better post than i am.

    For many men and women, the first exposure to the mood-changing impact of hormones is puberty. For some young women, puberty can feel like permanent premenstrual syndrome -- PMS -- with the constant emotional ups and downs, irritability, depression, anxiety, brain fog, and moodiness. Young men don't escape the hormonal effect of puberty, however; they can have similar symptoms, along with anger and depression with rising and fluctuating testosterone.

    Thyroid issues are an often overlooked, hormonally-triggered cause of symptoms. When the thyroid becomes overactive – hyperthyroidism — symptoms can include anxiety, insomnia, moodiness, panic attacks, and depression. Some women have even been mistakenly misdiagnosed as having panic disorder or anorexia, before properly diagnosed with an overactive thyroid. An underactive thyroid — hypothyroidism — can cause depression, moodiness, fatigue, and in some cases, anxiety as well.

    Before you go down the road of antidepressants and/or anti-anxiety medications, make sure your physician takes a complete medical history, assesses your symptoms, does a thorough clinical exam, and runs comprehensive blood testing to evaluate and diagnose any hormone balances. Unlike most medications and supplements that support and balance hormones, antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications often have significant side effects, and frequently don’t even resolve your symptoms if the underlying cause is, in fact, a hormonal issue.

    TLDR/ It could be hormonal imbalance. Either change ur diets to healthy food to force your body to repair itself (balancing your hormones), and work out to let loose that "FEELING OF DEPRESSION". Or visit a phsyician/endocrinologist.

    Hope this helps you. Cheer up *hugs*
