Default What do you do when you're depressed and don't know why?

You ever just have a time when you're just fine for the beginning of the day, but all of the sudden, you're just radiating negetive energy. You're not sad enough to cry, but you feel something that's not quite right?

It just happens out of the blue (atleast for me), that I have these feeling and don't even know why. Sure I have a lot of things on my plate, but that's not entirely why I'm feeling the way I'm feeling.

Anybody else have had this happen to them or even had a way to prevent or deal with this problem?

Yes. This happens to me all the time. Sometimes I have to think and retrace my thoughts back to when my moods changed. Then I find out my awful mood stemmed from something small and stupid. So sometimes it helps to find out what started it...if possible.

Yes, I have. One thing I'd suggest is exercise, exercise and more exercise. I've read a lot of studies that say exercising regularly helps elevate your mood. I can personally attest to that because I feel good emotionally after a good workout. You don't have to do anything drastic like run a marathon but even a 15-30 minute walk helps.

I don't know if that's a reply you were looking for but I hope things go well for you regardless.

I guess with my problem, it's linked to the conversation I had with my boyfriend this morning because we got on the topic about religion (which seems to happen on every Sunday now), but it led to the discussion of what'll happen during 2012.

I just got to thinking, and started having sort of images if there were a movie based on my life (weird but I have a weird imagination that goes everywhere because I have ADHD)

The problem is, I had very bad images about me being alone which is typical for me; I just call them bad day dreams which, unfortunatly, are the norm for me. What kind of spread these thoughts all day was this song which seems nice. I mean I love the song, it's just, put together with my thoughts kinda left me to what I'm feeling right now.

Well I pace to music in order to think every day which does make me feel better in a way but it only lasts so long.

i get suddenly depressed a lot for seemingly no reason. i try not to think about why im depressed, cause that usually causes me to completely spiral down into a pit of self-loathing, uncontrollable crying, and all that...
so i watch comedy central to distract myself (ive been told that humor is the way i cope with stuff), play video games (get me focused on something else), or just sleep

Yeah, it happens to me a lot too. I try to distract myself but sometimes I can't get rid of this feeling no matter what I do.

Who's to say what will happen?. Like a few other years (eg 2000), there is the "doomsday" stuff doing the rounds, but just like those years, nothing might happen (no planet X/Nibiru changing Earth's tilt, no major tsunami, no triggering of many volcanos, no "ice-age", no wiping out of 2/3rds of world's population, ...). A week or so ago i was delving into all that stuff, & was starting to believe it (& worry about slightly), but since then i have realized that almost of it is rubbish. People are making false videos/etc, spreading rumours ... WHO KNOWS WHY. So i wouldn't worry about anything just yet. So my current belief is that mankind will continue in 2012, to go through the "spiritual transformation" that began in 2011. As to whether this will be accompanied by a physical catastrophe is anyone's guess. Perhaps we might just get some more-severe solar flares? Or earth's magnetic field might be affected by the crossing of Milky-Way's equator? Another words, it might be basically just "more of the same" of what we've been getting in the last few years, perhaps a little more intense, perhaps not.

Just like staying in the same physical location, whilst depressed, having a song that keeps playing in mind can also serve to keep the depression going (been there done that). It seems to keep the memories of experiencing the depression in the forefront of your mind (ie the exact same sensory keeps triggering the exact same depressed feelings)
