Introduction & Call For Help

Hi. I am currently going through a phase where I don't know why I feel this low. When I try to think deep, I can't think of anything that should get me this upset. My parents are visiting after so long and I am doing well at work. So things are happy, bit I don't know why I don't feel the same. I don't know who to talk to about this, because they may think I am being unreasonable and a pain. I realized, this isn't the first time I have had this sudden bouts of low. But it goes off. So I don't want my near and dears to know because I know this will pass as it has in the past. But I am trying to get out of this and don't know how to. I would greatly appreciate some help. Thanks! :)

you sound depressed and contrary to popular belief, depression does not only occur in people who are stressed or dealing with one life problem or another.

some months ago, something similar happened to me. I believed i was living a content existence and really had no serious stressors to complain of, yet i ended up needing to check myself in to the mental health clinic on suicide watch not too long ago. i was happy to get sometime off.. free vacation .. but i also learned that even those who are happy and presumably doing well can in fact experience depression and some of its symptoms.


But what if I can't take a leave to enroll. Will talking to a psychiatric help? I feel I am missing out on the present with this riff in my mind!


a leave from work? I doubt you would need to do such, i mean unless your doctor suggests that.

A psychiatrist can.help you figure out what is wrong with you and the treatment course for your situation. Usually, you can see one during your lunch hours or after work here in the US. Not sure how it works on your end, but the sooner you start, the better.
