It's like a voice in the back of your head constantly telling you that you suck, that you're worthless and that everything is just dark.....even if that's not really the case. It isn't something that can just be switched off....some days, you CAN tell it to do one. Some days, it hits you like a ten ton truck.
I know what you mean. I have a mood disorder (unspecified) and part of it's depression, and when I'm depressed people like my family will ask what's wrong or what happened when most of the time it's NOTHING. Then the person get irritated because they think that because there IS no cause I should just look on the 'bright side' and "get over it." It does nothing but make me feel worse and piss me off. Sometimes I just really want to tell people like that to shove it up where the sun don't shine! Of course it would just make it worse, so I just scream that at them in my head. Makes me glad I don't have telepathy!

Ugh - when I was younger I had this a lot in school ~ It's so deep and you are just stuck in an everlasting vortex of darkness - When people say - OH COME ON, PLEAAASE- just get off your ass and do stuff (or get happy!)
Won't help one bit - In ways,it makes depression worse.
I found a good way for depression,is to just have someone with you if there is someone that is. Sometimes talking about how you feel even if you don't get out of it will help.
Anyway, Depression isn't just a feeling - I will seriously agree with that - depression is an illness, a state of mind that people do not choose to be in.
I've been there, but to be honest we all mixed it up ~ I was actually bipolar so when it came for help - antidepressants? Never worked.
