    I don't typically show much emotion, but if I did, they would usually be emotions of happiness, so people typically think I'm a jolly chap, especially since I never talk to anyone about my problems or how I feel.

    It happens to me a lot where I'd be happy one moment, and then suddenly unhappy the next moment.

    I don't mean within seconds, I mean say in the period of a week, this would happen once or twice, and usually when it does happen I tend to feel rather empty inside, and I wouldn't feel like doing anything except for being alone and just thinking about why I'm so down, and also binge eat

    (although I don't binge eat anymore, I've managed to control that, I don't even eat that much anymore to be honest)

    It's weird because like I said, I never show any emotion, but when I'm depressed, I just keep to myself and start thinking that everything in my life will be a failure i.e Catastrophobia.

    Usually when I feel like this, I can't sleep as well... and then suddenly I'll be very happy again after a few days.

    It's quite strange as well because when I am having these depressing episodes, I sometimes think about how I want someone in my life who can relate to me to help pick myself up? You know, someone to motivate me etc.

    Meh.. anyone else can relate to this?

    Yes , I suffer with health anxiety which causes me to have bouts of depression. I understand how you feel.
    When I am alone it gets a lot worse.

    That sucks :/

    Ye when I'm alone it makes matters much worse. Ever since I moved out for uni 3 years ago, it has been tough.

    Hi,

    I'm really sorry to hear you feel this way and it's really brave of you to speak out about it and ask about it. What I'm going to do is move this to Mental Health. Mental Health has an amazing community within the section that will be able to give guidance and support with this and hopefully you'll be able to understand what's going on a little more. If you do feel brave enough, it is always a good first step to see your GP about how you're feeling and hopefully they'll be able to help you.

    I really hope this makes sense
    Take care,
    Ethan
