I know it's not a medical term, but how does one know when they are or feel like having a nervous breakdown?  I am not sure what I am so depressed about, but can't seem to get out of it. Medicine never really works for me. I have a wonderful life..but hardly ever happy.  I really feel like I am about to break.  (not suicidal at all!!) but really can't explain it.  I guess I could best explain it as wanting to crawl ina hole and just stay there and cry.  But don't really have the energy to cry?  It comes and goes.  is this happen to anyone??

It sounds like more of a depression than a nervous breakdown. I would suggest giong to your doctor and trying a different med, or getting a med adjustment.

Keep posting and let us know how you are doing.

here's a link to a post from a Mayo Clinic doctor about "nervous breakdowns":
http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/nervous-breakdown/AN00476

in this opinion, the guy says that most people use "nervous breakdown" to refer to severe depression coming on pretty quickly. i'm not sure i've ever felt depression come on quickly. if you do feel that way, please call a counselor to schedule an urgent appointment. if you are starting to feel down & it is affecting your life, maybe it would be a good idea to see your primary care doctor to see if something is causing it (hormones, anemia, etc.). if needed, your primary care doctor can probably refer you to a mental health professional.

I hope that helps -- and that you feel better. Know that you can post here anytime. The other members are really wonderful people & are very helpful.

peace,
frances
