In our lives we do come across many situations in which we feel sad and depressed. However, as matured persons we try to come out of the situationa and try to get going with our routine life. The depression may be because of different reasons like failure to achieve your goals, financial troubles, physical problems, social problems etc. Which type of reason for such depression or sadness is such that you take lot of time to come out of and hurts maximum?

For me, it's straight out of the blue. But I am also Bipolar, so that might be why. I think also that failing to get an A can really bring me down, holidays can really get me down because I get so concerned about getting everyone a gift and yet I don't really have money.... oh, MONEY. YEP. That's probably my number one. I have to say that money probably is the biggest thing that depresses me and that is depressing in and of itself.

I'm also bipolar... or at least that's my what my psychologist said, I guess the worst moments for me is when I have absolutely nothing to do and I'm left by myself with my thoughts. I get to thinking, and forget it, the cloud starts looming over my head.

I think that in case of bipolar person the best way is to keep busy with some activity and do not allow your mind to get engaged in any thoughts of worries. I think that financial problems are almost with everybody. May be with you it is more acute. However, we have to learn to live within our limitations. So we should not allow such things overcome our mental health.

Jzenith, wow, yeah, I guess I could see how that would definitely put you in a down mood. I'm constantly busy, though, and I still get sad. I think that whether you're busy or not, if it's going to hit you, it's going to hit. But I would definitely recommend trying to keep busy too and see if that helps. Are you taking anything for it? Deserve40, I do keep busy, haha. Always busy. I work three jobs and am a full time student at the University and yet I still get these wild mood swings. And I wish I could not allow things to overcome mental health, but I'm not good at it. I guess that's why they created medication? LOL.

I had battled depression personally for most of my life. In later years, this was in large part due to traumatic treatment and psychological abuse. However, I was also diagnosed with bi-polar disorder about four or five months ago. For me the hardest depression for me to come out of is when my bi-polar flares horribly and then triggers old memories.

In your case it is quite understandable that your old memories are painful and so when your old memories overtakes your mind you will have to face worst depression. I think that you can learn to practice something like "Pranayama" which would help your to come out of such depression much faster. If you are physically fit to play some games or do dancing then that would also prove to be excellent to give out your frustration and you can control your depression.
