In reply to Question about depression!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, posted by woolav on May 13, 2005, at 9:21:37

> I am trying to figure out something. I have had depression ever since i could remember as well as panic disorder. But, it seems that now (and a few times years ago) that I get to the point of suicidal thoughts. When I go into depression, its not just feeling sad, its Life sucks and I want to go! I was wondering if there is such a thing as just major depressive disorder without the other side (bp or bp2) It would seem that to get that low, that I would have to get high at times too. (which i do) but I am just so confused about my problems right now. I thought i might be bp2, but some ppl say i dont. I dont see how I can have an episode (months long) of highs, where i am totally irrational in my thinking and then go into major depression, then feel somewhat* normal..If thats not a cycle, then what the hell is it?????

It sounds like bipolar for sure (IMO). Your depressions don't sound "mixed" though. When you're high there is a tremendous amount of energy being consumed and a lot of rapid-fire thinking. When you crash, the plug gets pulled on the energy supply.. and your thoughts *seem* more "rational".. they're just not haywire and scattered, etc. Suicididal ruminations aren't really rational.. maybe it is just the *pace* of your thinking being slowed leads you to think of it is as normal?
