Today has been a really bad day. I woke up coughing, but it didn't really feel like asthma. More like I was choking on my own snot. (gross, I know) I also had a sore throat and a headache w/pain along my cheekbones and just below my eyes. My nose was running. I took some Sudafed, and some Albuterol for the cough, just in case.
I feel better now, but I don't know.... I just feel sort of out of it. Just not like myself. I feel like I've been depressed lately. I can barely get out of bed because I just feel so exhausted. I do have some issues with my health, such as asthma and acid reflux, but I can usually deal with it. But lately I just haven't been able to cope. I keep crying. I'm falling behind in school, because I've barely been there these past couple weeks. I'm worried I'm going to fail. I've gotten some work to make-up, but I just can't bring myself to do it. I'm usually happy, and I feel guilty that I feel so sad. I have a lot of stuff going for me. I'm smart, pretty, rather popular, I come from a well-off family. I feel sort-of sick often, but not horrible. I mean, I don't even know why I feel sad.... I just do. I tell myself that I'm just worried about things, and that if I just calm down and get myself together I'll be fine, but I can't seem to do that.
Sorry about the rant. But I'm just real upset. Does anybody have any advice?
Edit: I didn't mention that I don't really have an appetite. I've even lost weight. I'm naturally thin too, so I really can't afford to loose too many pounds.

Hi and I'm so sorry you are dealing with all this. Exhaustion, crying, lack of appetite are all typical signs of depression. The first thing you should do is tell your parents you feel this way so they can help you. Are you under 18? If you are over 18, I highly recommend you go see your doctor. With any chronic illness such as asthma, we run the risk of depression (trust me, I've been there - not with asthma but a different chronic illness) and it needs to be brought to the attention those around you. Also I recommend you visit our depression forum to find help if you haven't already done so.

Never apologize for always feels good to get things off our chest :)
