Default OT mental cases (real mental cases). Ever feel like you are just having a BAD day?

I dont mean a bad day like "my car wont start, when it did, I got a flat, and then I fell in a puddle" bad. I mean a day where you wake up just feeling like what is the point? Not suicidal, but so apathetic about everything that if breathing wasnt an involuntary thing, you probably couldnt be bothered to do it?

I have been having a lot of those lately.

Yes I have meds, yes they help, but they help with rage type issues (I have bi-polar 2 disorder with a hefty dose of ADD) but for whatever reason I still get bouts of what I guess is depression, usually only for a day or even sometimes just a few hours. For no good reason. And its not if I miss my meds or take them late really, it doesnt seem to coincide with anything specific.


Anyway, it sucks.
Should I ask my shrink to refer me to a therapist? The problem is every time in the past when I had one, it just so worked out that every time I went in for a session, I felt FINE.

My solution is and always has been cardiovascular excercise.

The voices in my head don't mumble as much if they are out of breath

Do you get enough sleep? Eat healthy? Have you tried not having any caffeine for a few days?

I think you need to visit your physician to regulate your meds. You might need to try a different dose, or a different med all together.

Therapists are nice if you have issues that you need to work through. If you see yourself having sudden mood shifts to no apparent outside stimuli, you should have your doses reexamined.

That's a bit like telling a guy with a broken leg that everyone needs to limp once in a while.

the anonymity of the internet isn't quite enough for me to divulge into all those feelings and details, and I don't know you, but i do know how you feel sometimes. hopefully one more in the same boat makes you feel a little better.

and lately ive felt really nice. I'd say it kind of comes in waves that can be hours, days, or weeks of one then the other. And I am on some meds.

Fair enough, but all I can really say is that its not the normal "meh I want to sit around and play GTA all day" kind of feeling. Its a I can barely manage to get myself out of bed (not because I am tired) kind of feeling.

As usual, today, almost totally fine. May be completely fine today, too tired to tell right now (just work up, eating some breakfast)

1) Get some exercise.
2) Drop the meds if possible.

Making appt with therapist. Just left msg with my shrink. Between the depression/apathy and insomnia, its really messing me up and starting to affect my business.

I think I MAY have missed one of my pills a few days back, that could be part of the problem.

Besides the above mentioned, temporary solutions...

What are your goals in life? The one thing I find in common with depressed people is that they are looking for something...and just don't know what it is.

As a human being, if you have no goals in life, ie something you're working towards, and I don't mean your car (unless, that of course, holds to suffice) then you're going to find yourself depressed more often than not.


Personally, when I have those days, I just wait till they pass. Might not help much...but just think about it. No matter what clocks gonna tick, so whether you're depressed or not makes no difference (or any of us, of course). So the best thing to do is just to remind yourself that today is just another day, take it easy if you have to, and let the day ride.

Got a call from a co-worker today. His friend, 40 years old, passed away in his sleep yesterday, most likely due to getting laid off work. Stress killed him. Eat, drink, ****, ****, enjoy life. What more can we do?

I once heard that depression arises in folks when they start focusing on the way the world "should be" and the way that it actually is. It's that disparity that gets us down.

Often time the depressed folks I know are very smart, literate and creative people. I think that level of brain activity means we stay inside our own heads a little bit and overthink things. It helps to shut your brain off every now and then.

Be like a dog. Just do stuff, appreciate what you got. Don't overthink things. Exercise. Even when you don't want to, just do it.

DA, How long has it been since your doc really evaluated you and your meds? Time for a change in meds?

I can't related 100%, but my wife is currently in a funk. She had a bout with anxiety a few years ago, but stopped taking her meds after a while because she 'felt fine and didn't like the side effects.' Now she's just started up with some anxiety again. She has started taking her meds again a few days ago and has made an appointment with her doc for next week, but she said it can take up to a month before the meds kick in.

I dunno... Just sharing a story so you don't feel completely alone with your problems. I work with a girl who is bi-polar, but I've never seen her go bad in the 8 years I've been here. She always seems happy.

Good advise right there.
