Is that weird?
I usually function pretty well these days. But I miss the really bad days. I don't really know how to live like this. Like, I dont really struggle like I used to and I'm kind of in cruise mode- it feels kinda dead I guess and not too meaningful
And I don't have too much desire to bring meaning into my life... when I was very depressed (crying, very emotional states) I wanted so badly to be close to Hashem I would curl up in bed and cry, and cry and cry. I miss that.
I still get turned off by shiurim and the typical "spiritual" stuff.
Somewhere, deep inside, I think I still feel.
Anyone?

Are you on meds that block your emotions?

When I feel good I don't miss being depressed at all, and I panic whenever I feel some symptom that makes me think that it's coming back.

I'm the same way. I miss being depressed. When I was depressed I got attention which is something I crave and need. I know where you're coming from. You're not the only one...

Sometimes you need to run away just to see who will follow you.

Sometimes when I say "I'm okay", I want someone to look me in the eyes, hug me tight and say "I know you are not".

Just because I'm smiling doesn't mean I'm happy.

I wonder if there are two different types of depression: chemically triggered, such as PPD or Bipolar spectrum, and life triggered, where one's basic needs are not being met.
