I'm with my parents and I cried for well over 2 hours this morning upon waking up.  I could not control it.  I just kept going and going.  Mom came home and found me like this and said get busy.  Get your mind off of the crying.  I called my Employee Assistance Program and they said the same thing.  But, there has got to be SOMETHING, ANYTHING I can do to keep this crying from starting up each morning.  I'm taking the Wellbutrin as prescribed each morning and even took it 1 hour before getting out of bed as getting out of bed seems to trigger the crying.  Any advice at all would be appreciated.  Since it is a holiday I cannot get in to see a counselor and cannot get a hold of my primary care physician.  I'm at my wits end with this crying.  I can handle the feeling numb and no feelings.  It's the crying that has got me.  My parents feel helpless.  I JUST WANT IT ALL TO GO AWAY.  I took my Xanax over an hour ago and I feel the crying is coming back again.  Am waiting for it to kick in and hopefully soon.
A little about me:  I quit smoking 8 months ago.  I come from a very loving supportive caring family.  No family stress.  No stress at work.  This depression has just hit out of the blue for no apparent reason.  The doctor says that happens sometimes.  I'm looking for immediate relief and know that will not happen.
What do others do here to make it thru the day?????????????????

Usually I cry at night, so maybe getting up and taking your medicines and then staying up, not
going back to bed...and calling your doctor tomorrow as soon as they open, maybe the
wellutrin needs to have another medicine to make it more effective or maybe it needs sometime to build
up in your system, or maybe another medicine might work better for you altogether..
Once your on the right medicine hopefully all this will get better for you...
Others will be by so listen to them..., maybe get a game plan to hit your alarm
and jump out of bed before the crying begins...or get a goal set up for a morning routine.
maybe once you got a plan maybe the crying will go away...many well wishes to you and do keep
us posted as we do care...

I think Chartreux is right, a change in your morning routine would give you something to think about. Something different. That might help you to not cry in the mornings. Does it get worse thoughout the day, or does it just happen in the mornings when you get up. Sometimes I get up early and take my meds so I will feel better when I get up the next time. It often helps. It must be tough feeling the way that you do. I would consult the doc and tell them. Maybe a mood stabilizer would help. And they don't take as long to kick in. Something to go along with your antidepressant. I take one and it helps me.

Keep posting.
