Does anyone get this feeling, of really being down, like you just wanna get in bed and not do anything at all....But you can't control it, its like you are being controlled. And you feel it in your head...Its not like being sad its 100 times worse and it comes out of nowhere for no apparent reason. You cant function and you dont even wanna get up to do anything..please share you experiences

If you are sad and have symptoms that make it hard to get up and get going you may be dealing with depression. Depression is an illness that affects millions of people and can be debilitating if not treated. Recognizing the danger signs of depression can help you know what to look for and when it is time to get help.

You might want to check the depression forum and read some of the great threads on that forum.

What you are expressing sounds like deep depression. I was in deep depression before and all I wanted to do was stay in bed and be alone. I felt helpless and hopeless and like there was no way out. It was sort of like drowning and it was taking all I had in me to keep my head above water and not go under. I was also dealing with extreme anxiety at the time. After I was prescribed Zoloft and xanax, I started getting better.
Some years later, I started feeling very depressed again, but as I found out, this time it was caused by the medication Propranolol, which I was on to help fight panic attacks. As soon as I got off of it, the depression disappeared.
People need tyo realize that depression and anxiety can both be problems caused by chemical imbalances in the brain. They do not make a person a bad person. They do not mean a person is being punished by God or that God is angry with them. Like problems caused by faulty organs, such as the heart, lungs, kidneys, etc., the brain gets off-balance sometimes too. No shame in it. I wish more people would do like you and ask questions. That's the best way to understand!
