On Monday I got up feeling kind of down after having a great weekend. I've been really happy every day up until Monday. I had a great weekend with my boyfriend and I was really happy and all, but on Monday (which coincidentially was his birthday) I got up feeling down, almost apathetic towards everything, and I was like that with my boyfriend too. I've been really tired lately. I've been going to bed at 10:30 every night and getting up at 6:30 for school. I've had a lot of work to do lately and two tests coming up, which are stressing me out. My boyfriend has noticed that I haven't been myself these last couple of days and it's scaring me, because I just like this randomly. No event caused this sudden depression. I've only been like this once before and I thought I was gonna end up breaking up with my boyfriend because I felt like everything was too much for me. This lasted a week for me, and it took me a long time to recover from it. Thank goodness I didn't do anything stupid because I love him and I don't ever want to leave him. I want to feel happy again, I've been really anxious and sad and it's affecting my boyfriend as well. I talked to him a few minutes ago (after I was feeling a little better) and I don't know if it was because of what he was telling me (which seemed like rubbish) or if it was because I'm going through a stump or something. I love him and I don't want this to affect our relationship. What should I do?

Oh and I just ended my period. I think this may be the reason that all this is happening.

Is this just general negative feelings, or is it directed at certain aspects of the relationship? Also, has the depression raised any issues that may applied to your relationship (e.g. negative inward thinking directed at self-worth making one question the validity of the relationship)?

They're just negative feelings, and the inward thinking has happened, but it goes away and then I'm fine. Idk what's going on.

But you're fine right now, correct?
I realize that right now those negative feelings seem a mile away, but I wouldn't just dismiss them. Not that they are true, but it could be indicative of more.

For example, small bouts of depression happen to me every few months or more, and they're generally centered on issues of self-worth and treatment by other people.
