Hey everyone. Well this summer hasn't been the easiet for me. I have had a lot of time to just sit down and re-evaluate myself and my life and everything around me.

Well, that has actually led to this thing.. where I get really sad and just start to cry. For example.. my boyfriend came over last night and we were just watching television and something came on that reminded me of something. I just started to cry. It happens quite frequently. I don't really understand it and I was wondering if anyone knew some ways to get over it.. or some sites to look up. Thanks a lot for reading this and your advice. Take care!

For me, i go through different hormonal fluctuations (especially right before my period - I'm one mean chick - yikes!) depending on my time of the month. Could this, perhaps, be it?

If you find that you are struggling with depression for more than 2-3 weeks at a time, you should probably visit your doctor and see what s/he would suggest for you.

I get like that sometimes, but if it's happening a lot, like lisa said, i would recamend heading to a docter or professional.

Your cycles could very well have something to do w/ it ... Charting when you start your period, when it ended, how long it was, and rating your days on a scale of 1-5 on how you feel would help you and your doctor decide if that may be the cause of it.

This is taken from depression-screening.org:

If you have been experiencing five (5) or more of the below symptoms for more than two (2) weeks, if suicide is a serious concern, or if the symptoms are severe enough to interfere with a daily routine -- see your doctor or qualified mental health professional.

    Persistent sad, anxious or "empty" mood

    Sleeping too much or too little; middle-of-night or early-morning waking

    Reduced appetite and weight loss, or increased appetite and weight gain

    Loss of pleasure and interest in activities once enjoyed, including sex

    Irritability, restlessness

    Persistent physical symptoms that do not respond to treatment (such as chronic pain or digestive disorders)

    Difficulty concentrating, remembering or making decisions

    Fatigue or loss of energy

    Feeling guilty, hopeless or worthless

    Thoughts of death or suicide

I get like that, too. One time I was watching Rugrats with my 4 year old sister and I just started bawling because I thought the whole plot of the story was sad. I saw the same episode two or three weeks later and I had no idea why any part of it could be depressing.

But I'm going with the group and saying you should maybe talk to a counselor or doctor. Good luck
