    DEpression comes on for no reason it seems sometimes it could be the meds your on have stopped working The chemicals in your brain is not at the right level Hormones can bring on depression if they are out of wack. Your not crazy many time i will just start crying for no dam reason at all just look like a complete fool. The trick is not to stay there for long try to get yourself out of that space quickly because the longer your there the harder it is to get out.

    Plenty of people are depressed for no reason, it could be an underlying reason from your childhood or it could be that you've been depressed for so long you have forgotten why or it could even be a form of mental illness or a clinical imbalance.

    In any case the best thing we can all do is learn how to cope. Coping mechanisms are really the way forward if you don't feel that this will ever go away completely. I don't. I fear I have been depressed too long and I just always will be.
    All I want to do is learn how to cope with it and learn how not to become suicidal during the bad times. :(

    You aren't alone. I am diagnosed with Major Depressive, and honestly don't have any reason to be.

    *edited* Because what I was saying was messed up.

    Situational & "True" Depression don't determine anything... depression is depression, whether or not there is a distinctual reasoning behind it. Just because someone has discovered the reason behind their depression doesnt mean it's not "True" depression ... that's kind of harsh to say that...

    I am not sure what I was trying to say to be honest. Not that they are any less. Sorry if it came off harsh. It really wasn't meant to be.

    Happens with me all the time, even in the middle of class, work, or some other activity. It kicks in like a random illness, and indeed it foes have a biological basis, which may explain your situation.

    You're not crazy! Perhaps its a chemical imbalance? :dunno:
    Probably something to talk to your doctor about.

    I'm with you, so no, you're not alone.
    Now it's more a 23/7 (there's the odd 'not wanting to die' hour) but it began as an on and off thing. Suppose you could call it 'situational depression'. I was fine with other people, but as soon as I was alone I'd find myself back in hell.

    Hope things turn out better rather than worse though :)
