Patient discussion about blues

Q. I’m sick of feeling blue, and wish I could just enjoy life like other people do. Hi, I get in to depressive episode even for minor issues. Although my depression makes it hard for me to maintain friendships, I have a number of close friends. I’m going well with my parents. I have a stable, well-paid job and a first class master’s degree. I'm fit, healthy and don't consider myself unattractive. I don't understand why I get depressed, but I feel down most of the time. I sleep too little or not enough, and my diet deteriorates during the real low periods. I lack motivation in everything and it started to affect my job. I’m sick of feeling blue, and wish I could just enjoy life like other people do.
