Hi. Thanx for reading. I'm trying to figure out if I have depression or what. I'm a poor college student so I have no insurance. So congratulations, by reading this you are now my doctor. (joke) Anyway, what happens to me is that every once in a while if I keep thinking negative thoughts my mood get's worse and worse until I feel bad (mentally) And once I am in this state I feel like I can't get out of it. Kind of like being trapped in a bad feeling. It's kind of like I am at the mercy of my own thinking. If I think bad thoughts I know what is headed my way. And once it hits I will be stuck feeling like that for a while. So is this depression? Does this ring a bell for anyone? Thanx for taking the time.
