The cycle starts again

It's another "depression" week.Like clockwork, I get depressed every other week.Surprise, surprise, it started today.Sometimes, it even starts a few days early.I swear, it's like a freaking period, only happening more often.At least the meds are helping a little now.

I wonder if the cycles will ever stop.It didn't happen until that breakdown I had in the beginning of May.Why did it start making my depression occur in cycles? I wish I had some answers.

Fine, whatever. Maybe that was stupid of me to say. However, I have been diagnosed with medical depression.

Not really. Just trying to find someone who cares.

You don't know shit about other teenagers, so stop talking out of your arse. Keep in mind your "depression" that you've been dealing with is "undiagnosed", which means "probably made up".

All you're doing there is fishing for sympathy. Move on.

Other teenagers do not have bi-weekly cycles of sadness like me. If they do, there sure as hell aren't many of them. Keep in mind, I've been struggling with depression for 3 years. I've been doing all I can. I'm not saying it's impossible to prevent. I should have worded that differently.

But anyways, I don't feel like arguing with you. I kinda like you.

I do believe I have medical depression, though, as this is a bi-weekly thing that can never be prevented.
=======================

Statements like those tend to become self fulfilling prophesies by "the power of wishful thinking".


If you said "I've had spells where I felt depressed in the past" you'd have helped to close the door.
If you said "I haven't found a way to beat it, yet, but I'm going to" you'd have helped to close the door.

Instead you told yourself that you HAVE "depression" and can NEVER prevent them. What you probably have is called "PUBERTY", "BEING A TEEN", and "COMING OF AGE". Move on.

Yeah, I can definitely understand that. I do believe I have medical depression, though, as this is a bi-weekly thing that can never be prevented. I was even doing some of my volunteer work, and broke down in there. But, I will be doing more to help people. I promise that.

In my experience, people who are dog tired because they've given their all to help those around them, to do what was needed the most by those with the least, seldom ever have the time or energy to feel depressed.

They used to say that the devil finds work for idle hands. They weren't too far off the mark with that one.

You know, I haven't thought about that. I guess I've been thinking that what I was doing was enough. Sorry for being so snappy :/

That's very nice but have you really done much that was useful for any of the people around you today? Have you done as much as you could? Have you made an impact where it was needed?

Or have you been paying lip-service and dragging your heels of late?

Think about it.

For your information, I've been volunteering now, and been looking for a job to help my dad get a hip replacement. What now, BITCH?

I'd be willing to bet that it's another "haven't really done much that was useful for any of the people around me" week too. Just saying.
