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.

A. Make an appointment with your doctor as soon as you can and tell him/her all that you are saying here. Your doctor can help you with this and get you going again. Don't put it off or try to cure yourself with alternative stuff.
