How do I know if I have depression? I ve had recurring thoughts of death and suicide since I was young (these occurred more frequently during periods of stress, but I was always sort of aware of death. Even when in a happy mood, if I m taking the train into the city with friends, for example, I feel a slight pull in my head saying that I could jump on the tracks and be gone.). Lately these have intensified a great deal. I didn t leave my apartment for six days once, and have been slowly sabotaging my own life (I m a student at an elite college, scored at a high percentile in the MCAT, and have been by all accounts a fairly hard worker heretofore. Recently, I procrastinated too much on my thesis, to the point where it may no longer be accepted, and stopped attending classes and submitting assignments). Furthermore, what can I do to get through the next couple of weeks, after which I can afford (the constraint is time, rather than financial) to get an appointment and treatment.

The past year or so I ve been feeling off. Before this year I can only remember once that I felt persistently sad for a month or longer. It was in the winter and my best friend was allow feeling similarly down so I don t know if it was a sympathy reaction. This year, my senior year of high school, things kind of went down hill for me. I cant remember when it all started. It wasn t until December that things really became bad for me. I started cutting a week before Christmas and for some reason I liked it. It made me feel better. I hadn t noticed it at the time but when I look back and talk to friends it was apparent that I wasn t my usual self. Everything just kept getting worse. I didn t want to go to school anymore and I didnt want to have to talk to my best friend or boyfriend at the time. I didnt tell my parents what was going on because they dont believe me at all when it comes to this stuff. I have stopped cutting, havent in over a month now, and for the most part I have felt better. Recently though, the past two weeks, I have noticed myself feeling sad and just wanting to cry for no reason. My close friends keep asking me whats wrong but I don t know. One of my close friends who is studying to be a psychologist and who himself is diagnosed with sever depression and anxiety told me that he thought I was bipolar because I can go from being happy and having fun to almost being in tears in minutes. I know that it usually doesn t cycle that fast because I had to do a project on it but I know there is a thing called rapid cycling bipolar.

I was diagnosed as having depression and ptsd by a doctor and was sent to a psychiatrist. After a few meeting he said I didn t need him I needed a psychologist. After a few meetings with him he is recommending we meet fewer times a month. I sleep all the time. I m down to only eating only one meal a day. Ive lost all my friends because I refuse to socialize. I dont go anywhere until its dark outside. Not even to take out my trash. I find myself crying a lot. I m just always unhappy. I feel like I have major problems with my life. Why are these professionals basically blowing me off?
