@HisNightOwl2014: I used to feel that way a lot. I had really bad PMS, and was generally depressed in addition. I treated my depression with therapy and medication, and learned to recognize when the PMS was coming on. Just being aware of it can help bring things back into perspective. My depression lasted about 3 years. It has been gone (or in a long remission?) for many years now, and I am able to enjoy life. I recommend finding a good behavioral therapist (as opposed to psychotherapy), and please be open-minded about the idea of medication. Depression is an imbalance in the brain chemistry — it’s not a weakness or character-flaw. Best wishes — everyone deserves to be happy!
