depressed and now not???


I just spent 4 days in a deep sobbing/greiving mess, and then today I am feeling better?

How can that be possible?

Nothing that I know of triggered the depression and nothing snapped me out of it?

How can this happen?

Also, these past 4 days I was sure I was going to go inpatient tomorrow when I called my Tdoc, prob should have gone to Er but was waiting it out for my therapist , but now that i feell better would they even let me go inpatient?

I still don`t understand what happened?

Supposedly I am Bipolar 2 , and I know hypomania can come and last for awhile but a depressed state where I didn`t get out of bed, bathe, eat , just sobbed almost straight for 4 days. Thne it goes away????????

Hi jkm and welcome to the depression support group. Re you question, depression is a weird illness w/ a mind of it's own. I've not heard of a four day severe depressive episode, but the only thing I know about bipolar 2 is that I was misdiagnosed w/ it. Actually, I do know that it's supposedly more of a depressive disorder w/ some hypomania, but I'm not totally sure. I'm sure someone will be along tonight or tomorrow who knows more than I do about bipolar 2.

Meanwhile, welcome to the group. Feel free to post whatever and whenever. And please let us know how you're doing. We care.

Warm welcoming wishes, Sylvia

Hi Jkm, Welcome. It does sound like could be bipolar if you have moods like this in the past. I don't know if they would still admit you. It's posssible it your doc thinks so.

Hi JKM, Im sorry your having a very hard time. Maybe after you ask the your DR he or she will tell you if its bi-polar 2. Im just familiar with the term bi-polar. But now Im interested to know that theres different types.

I love to research, so I probably will. I think my son is bi-polar and not just severe depressive disorder, but I may find out.

Either way, I found myself at 3 days at a time doing thesame thing sometimes. Noy often though and I would change clothes.

But not much else when I was that down. Welcometo depression support group, I hope you find answeres and let us know, Im quite interesed myself, but not at the expence of you being sad. Post back , I hope you get well soon

Always Caring
