Sounds like depression and maybe anxiety to me. You can become depressed without a specific reason because depression is really just a chemical imbalance in your brain.

I would suggest that you seek out a mental health professional and talk to them about your symptoms. The faster you can get treated for something like depression, the sooner you can get your life back to normal.

I know how this cycle works, as I have struggled with depression a couple times in my life. Sometimes it just happens. *hug* Good luck.

Hi Ticatica, I think everyone goes through time periods of not totally loving themselves or where they are at in their life at the time.  You are not alone.  There is a lot of stress that comes with wedding planning, as well as everyday life stress added on top.  However, there may be something deeper here, so if these feelings continue more than a short while, you may want to consult a doctor and see if you have slight depression or anxiety.  I’m sure he can help.  Good luck to you!  Remember to try hard to think positive and continue to smile.  Life is a blessing and (although this is redundant I’m sure) things could always be worse.

Are you on hormonal birth control. I was like that when I was and I went off and a few months later, I was back to normal.

I absolutely agree with what zippylef says. Seek some professional help, hun, even if it’s just someone to talk to. That in itself can help so much (and let you know you’re not losing the plot!)

I’ve been there too and it can be triggered by anything.

Just a thought, but maybe with a little ‘tweaking’ wedding plans could actually give you a positive focus.

Take care. x

Absolutely sounds like depression. I know what you mean that you don’t have a reason to be. That happened to me. My life was pretty much perfect when I realized I had depression. It’s a chemical imbalance, so it doesn’t necessarily have to do with any events in your life. Talk to your doctor and don’t be ashamed; it’s very common.

ETA – It’s frustrating to think that no life event caused it. I know I’d rather have something concrete to blame for it that I could change, but I don’t. Sometimes these things just happen.

We all have days like this, but if it is long term, I’d go see someone. It’s not your fault and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. Good luck!

  That sounds very similar to me. I’ve been a rollercoaster this past month. I switched BC pills, and I have a feeling that is having an effect. Plus, it has been a very stressful month. We’ve dealt with some problems with our respective churches, I’ve had conferences and report cards, Fiance had to finish his thesis, I had just finished a really difficult class for grad school and finished my last one this past week…there was a TON of stuff going on. It can really wear on you!

  That being said, I just finished spring break. I made more of an effort to rest when I felt like it, but still try to do things, get exercise, and eat a little better. Those things have helped. I had two days where I did very little of nothing. It looks like your wedding is coming up soon, too. There’s a lot that goes into that day! Take it easy this week. If you are still feeling bad, I would definitely call your GP.

Definitely anxiety/depression. Been there, done that, have the tee shirt. The good news is, you don’t have to live with it! Finding a mental health professional is a tough first step to take but oh so worth it (and necessary). Please don’t hesitate to take control.

Hey, i been feeling kinda the same as you, what i do is that i talk to my fiance and he makes me feel better…i  have thoughts like yours but i think mine has to do with the fact that i had a baby (1 st baby) a few monnths  ago and been feeling up and down….you need to stay connected with your fam,ily and friends to talk with and feel better…keep your head up hunn, i know that feeling, i’m dealing with it also but as long as you talk with someone and let all those emotions out, you’ll feel better

@ticatica:  Well then your Fiance has a bad attitude about it and doesn’t know enough about it. If he would ever call what you’re going through weak, that is very very wrong. Admitting that you need help is 1,000 times better than letting it get to the point where one day you wake up and decide you don’t want to live anymore. If he loves you, he will want you to be healthy, and sometimes you can’t do it on your own. That doesn’t make you weak, it makes you human, and it makes you smart in seeking help instead of putting on a brave face and suffering alone. That’s all I’ll say about it, please seek help.
