Do you ever get depressed for no apparent reason ?

Asmae · 31-35, F
It happens.

Actually the other day I was having a deep conversation with my coworkers and all of them admitted going through really dark times. They seem to have their sh*t together and leading a happy productive life. Some of which brought up serious issues like suicidal thoughts even if they covered it up with humor. I thought to myself, wow, thought I was the only one. Discussing mental health is a bit of a taboo over here.
@Asmae Good to see you again. You were missed here. 😊

@bijouxbroussard Thank you sweet lady 🤗
I really appreciate it 💗
I suffer from clinical depression. A cause, but not technically a reason.

@bijouxbroussard I never knew that hon. Hope you have it somewhat under control. 🥰

I’ve had major depressive disorder since I was a kid. It’s a hand full of pills twice daily and a conscious effort to [i]not[/i] be depressed for no apparent reason.

I didn't even know it was Depression for the longest time. And I guess there have been many reasons.

Epilepsy is my reason for being defeated. But that is just for 3 or 5 days
The operative word is, apparent.
I'm sure I could [i]find [/i]a reason.
No, I get depressed because of the chemical imbalance in my brain

Always reasons never want to think about them

On rare occasion.

I used to, then I read something about sugar causing depression in some people. So, I quit eating sugar and it stopped happening.

It seems so, but I believe there are reasons.
Could be simply low dopamine or serotonin levels.

In some ways I'm lucky, I was never short on reasons, and that actually gave me a direction
Jm31xxx · 41-45, M
Yup, but there probably is a reason, I just can't figure it out.
zonavar68 · 51-55, M
All the time - it's normal life basically.
TheCaterpillar · 41-45, F
Yes but if I dig deeper usually I can find a reason
No
There's always a reason
WaryWitchWandering · 31-35, F
It’s for reasons I already know
Beatbox34 · 31-35, M
All the time. I have triggers too.
Riemann · 31-35, M
Eddiesolds · 56-60, M
Yes. I hate it.

Rooster · M
No, not much ever. Too busy to bother with it.

I have lots to be depressed about but it will just hit me at times. Sorry you are feeling this way.
