What are you like when you're feeling depressed?

Just something that interests me. Me and my friends were talking about what happens when we're feeling down. We all have our peaks and troughs and we all deal with it differently, and I was just curious about how different people deal with it.

What methods do you use to help get you out of it? Or do you like to dwell on it? Do you usually feel the onset of a depressive period coming or does it just hit you? And what's your behaviour typically like?

Re: What are you like when you're feeling depressed?

I don't really get depressed, I don't necessarily have an over the top personality but I don't get too flat either, I think sometimes that going to a third world country gave me a lot of perspective The people I know who do get depressed tend to sleep a lot if that helps. I also have one friend who used to get very teary and it was hard to watch her struggle to control how she was feeling, she started exercising on a regular basis and it's really helped.

Concerned but not consumed.

My depression lasts about five seconds.

Re: What are you like when you're feeling depressed?

I am always feeling depressed

I don't do anything to combat it, I just go on with my life. I think in general people don't really notice. But it takes me ages and ages to build up the motivation and energy to do stuff I don't want to do, from work stuff to basic chores.

Re: What are you like when you're feeling depressed?

Short tempered, aggressive, snappy, snide and I cry a lot. Fortunately I don't get depression very often, but it's hard to not have the thought come into your head at uni.

Re: What are you like when you're feeling depressed?

Basically I just want to be left alone when I'm depressed because I sure won't be any good to anyone around me.

I flip-flop between being pessimistic and basically thinking the world and it's people are horrible and being optimistic and thinking that people are good deep down. I don't think I'm bipolar, because the swings aren't drastic - I'm never 'stay-in-bed' depressed nor am I ever euphoric. I try to keep an even keel but it's like trying to balance a seesaw. It can be exhausting at times.

I doubt there's anyone more useless than me when I'm depressed. I'll do nothing for ages.
