    i haven't been feeling myself lately. not sure what's wrong but i know that i don't feel right. nothing physically wrong but i just feel so odd.

    i've been upset about things before but this isn't anything specific. i just feel like theres this haze over me and i have no motivation to do anything. i'm trying to revise but after half an hour or so i'll give up because i convince myself it's pointless because i'm going to fail anyways. i'm hardly eating anything.. and when i do i have to force it down. i keep crying all the time.. for no reason. i just feel overwhelmed and i'll start crying. i drove to the park today and just sat there crying for about an hour. no reason, just sat there crying. a woman who was out running asked me if i was ok and i shrugged and said i was fine. then i thought, what the hell is wrong with me?! why am i sitting here crying about nothing.

    i used to be out socialising with my friends every day.. i'd go out clubbing a few times a week.. now i have to force myself to get out of bed and meet up with a friend for coffee.

    as i'm typing this i feel like i could break down in tears any second. i'm not really stressed i don't think.. apart from my exams. but everyones stressed about that.

    i honestly feel like someone else has taken over my brain. i don't feel like my old self.. and i don't know what to do to get back to normal. this sounds ridiculous.. but in my head i feel dizzy. not physically, it's just all my thoughts are muddled and i can't think straight. i keep waking up in the middle of the night and i can't get back to sleep.

    it's like my personality has completely changed. in all honesty, i feel hopeless. i don't think i'm suicidal but i keep day dreaming about my family being without me.

    i'm not depressed, i'm not particularly stressed, i haven't had some crazy event in my life, i haven't recently been through a break up.. so what the hell is wrong with me?
    please, if anyone as any advice i'd appreciate it.

    It really does sound like you're (clinically) depressed. You should go see your GP and they can give you a proper diagnosis.

    You just described my life!
    Although, i've got -some- motivation for exams, because to me its my chance to get away to uni and start fresh (i don't know why, i just feel like its the thing i need to do to be my old self).

    I haven't seen a doctor or anything, but maybe you should. Or give yourself something to look forward to... like a holiday or soemthing? ah I don't know.

    But there probably is some sort of underlying issue. I do know that it doesn't seem as bad when i'm kept busy.. it gives me no time to think properly when busy. My ideal day would be when i'm rushed off my feet and then exhausted when I get home so I go straight to bed because I don't feel as sad then. Worst part is, no idea why i'm like this! You're not alone, you're not alone.

    EDIT:
    Also, if you want to mail me about anything feel free.

    I can so relate to the 'giving up/failing exams' feeling because It's just so overwhelming and scary.

    I would definitely advise seeing your GP. Even a friendly chat would have a positive impact on you

    no it doesn't really change.. it's more of a constant. i wouldn't describe it as sadness (that's why like i said, i'm pretty sure i'm not depressed) it's more idk.. an odd feeling. like i'm not myself. kind of hopeless more than anything. i've become very much introverted when i used to be a complete extrovert. i seem to be pushing everyone away. but it's happened gradually. even my best friends i haven't seen for about 2 weeks now.
    i have no reason to be sad. nothing has happened to me that is bad.. i don't know.

    I guarantee you it's just a phase; one that most people will go through at some point in their life. The outcome is that it always passes. Chin up

    I'd suggest that you turn to the people who know and love you best. You might feel like you want to be alone a lot of the time, but in reality it won't do you much good at all. Surround yourself with love and comfort and look after yourself. Make sure you don't cut your wider friends out of your life either, don't stop seeing them or going out or doing the things your 'old self' used to love to do.

    I guarantee you it's just a phase; one that most people will go through at some point in their life. Ask anyone, especially anyone older, and they'll tell you they had a variation of the depression you're feeling right now at some point. The outcome is that it always passes. Chin up
    i hope it is. thanks for your input.

    I know it's stupid but write it down somewhere. As if you are telling someone how you feel. It helps like a lot! I'm talking from experience...

    you need someone to slap some sense into you, if you had it all to begin what's with the long face like a horse?

    either that or you were deluding yourself and you've suddently had an epiphany that your life is totally ****.

    I personally think it's the former and you just need a good slap.

    i used to be out socialising with my friends every day.. i'd go out clubbing a few times a week.. now i have to force myself to get out of bed and meet up with a friend for coffee.

    as i'm typing this i feel like i could break down in tears any second. i'm not really stressed i don't think.. apart from my exams. but everyones stressed about that.

    i honestly feel like someone else has taken over my brain. i don't feel like my old self.. and i don't know what to do to get back to normal. this sounds ridiculous.. but in my head i feel dizzy. not physically, it's just all my thoughts are muddled and i can't think straight. i keep waking up in the middle of the night and i can't get back to sleep.

    I'm just passing on what programme tutor said to me last week, because I had been feeling exactly like this through-out this semester at uni and at the start of uni I was fine. Half of me still doesn't want to do anything but he just said that maybe I just need a break, to go out with friends yada yada yada.

    someone PM'd me saying that it could be related to change in contraception. coincidentally, i did come off the contraceptive i was on about the same time my mood changed. i definitely think this could be linked and i'm booking an appointment with my GP in the next few days. i really hope there is something they can do for me.
    thank you to everyone for replying.
