I suffer from depression, please explain what is going on ?

I am 17 years old I highly believe I suffer from depression. I am constantly sad and at times I can't even go out in public because I begin to cry and cannot stop it. Before my monthly cycle I begin to get excessively sad, I have nightmares and wake up very afraid. Yesterday and today I have had moments where I feel really sad and begin to cry but I am over 10 days away from my monthly cycle so i dont even know if that is exactly the cost. I have been this way for probaly 2-3 years now and I am tried of feeling so unhappy. Can someone please explain what is going on.

Hi Kelly. I can fully understand the way u feel before your monthly cycle because i feel exactly the same way. its terrible. i cry for no reason at all, am jittery, edgy, sad all the time. and this happens to me as much as 7 day before my periods. but as soon as my periods satrt i start to feel better. sometimes i take alprazolam when i cannot bear it. i have spoken to my mother and sister about it and they also have somewhat similar symptoms but much much milder than mine. All that i have been able to find out about it till now is that it is premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and it is common, but nobody seems to have a cure.

these are the pre mentrual syndrome its very common in all the females but the intensity varies from female to female.this state occurs owing to hormonal changes in our body so dont get tensed about it everybody is having it not only you are affected.also i will advice you to consult homoeopath to get relief from these symptoms.

this may be depression, but why are you depressed. wats the reason for your depression. life is gods gift not to waste it by making yourself sad. enjoy and even makes others happy. share your depression or any problems with a good friends.

There need not be a reason for depression in the sense that you're making yourself unhappy.  Sometimes it just happens that there is a chemical imbalance in your brain or body that causes it.  At times I get depressed...though I've never had chronic depression nor have I been diagnosed with anything, but usually there is no rational reason as to why I feel or act the way I do, so my conclusion is that there is a chemical cause.

I have a question but do not know what kind of doctor you are, I need to talk to a psychiatrist, this question is for them I suffer from Depression and having a hard time right now with school work, I have no motivation at all, keep putting things off, not eating, sleeping too much, feeling really really low. This is something that I have been living with since young age. I have been hospitalized over 25 times since age 17 and I am not 40 yrs old. I am scared that I am heading to hospital soon, I do not want to go back there but I wonder if it may help me to get a break from school and other things. I do not know what to do. All I want to do is sleep and escape. This is not good, I know that I am depressed, anything I do to try to help myself such as talking to others, going for walks, going to school, hanging around people during the day, I just do not know what to do anymore, I think I need to see my family doctor, just need some advice. I do have people in my life professionals to talk too but just need to know what someone else would tell me. Sorry if this is not the right doctor to ask for advice. i know what to do if this gets worse like go to the hospital i do know what i am supposed to do if things get worse just need some advice right now to figure out what i should do.

Hi, so I suffer from severe depression and I had an episode today and I had to call in from work but due to mental illness not being taken extremely serious and the lack of staff we have currently I panicked and told my boss that I fell and hit my head and had to go to the doctors office and now they are looking for a doctors note and I do not know what to do, do you think if I went in to the doctor and explained this to them they could give me note that says I fell and hit my head and went to the doctor on that specific date or will they get in trouble for this?
