Does anyone else's depression ever seem to coordinate with the time of day? Until a recent encounter with an ex I used to feel happy, motivated, and interested in things every morning, until around 2 - 3 p.m. Then everything would go downhill, nothing would feel the same anymore, everything that had held hope that morning now seemed just a pointless waste of space and time. I'd cry not knowing what I was crying about. Of course, thanks to the little whore coming over here and using me, I feel this way all the time now, but I have some hope that I'll once again stabilize (somewhat). I came out of a mental hospital a few years ago with a bipolar diagnosis; all of my doctors since then have told me that every hospital discharges everyone with that. My most recent diagnosis is "situational depression", for which I take Wellbutrin. My doctor insists that Wellbutrin is in my system constantly and will not wear off until two weeks after I stop taking it, denouncing my previous theory that my meds were wearing off in the middle of the day. His explanation is that I am becoming depressed because I am affected by "the time of day", or just because I believe my meds are wearing off. The latter seems unlikely to me, I feel I'm in greater control than that. My activities are not scheduled or regulated; I don't see how the time of day could be affecting me that way. Bipolar disorder or a medication problem would make so much more sense to me. But could my doctor be wrong? Does anyone else feel like this?
