Cant tell how bad my depression is

Ive been feeling really down since Tuesday and i dont think its just a few bad days anymore

Ive felt like I don't belong here in the world anymore, last few days my first thoughts when i wake up are "why did i have to wake up today"
I just feel so useless and hopeless even though im told im really helpful i dont feel helpful at all
Ive cried alot over last few days too,

I can impulsively buy things when i feel down and feel a moment of happiness but that feeling of happiness goes away after about 10 minutes

I dont know how to cope with these feelings

Re: Cant tell how bad my depression is

That sounds like serious depression. I think it would be right to see your doctor about it - just tell them exactly what you said in your forum post.

Re: Cant tell how bad my depression is

Glad you've got an appointment scheduled ... Depression itself can cause negative overthinking ... that's a symptom for a lot of people ... serious indecisiveness, inability to confidently think and make decisions.

Doesn't at all have to be ADHD. That's what depression does to the brain (for a lot of people).

First thing I noticed when i first when on antidepressants: I could make decisions again ... later I noticed that my brain seemed to produce fewer negative thoughts with a good medication ...
