Depression?

I've been a bit depressed in the last few days, but I'm feeling better. My husband keeps telling me I should go to the doctor for depression, but I feel like I go in and out of it. I know depression runs in my family, and if it's clinical depression you can't beat it on your own (most of the time). Still, I feel like it just comes and goes every few weeks. I'll have a bleak outlook, think that my marriage is a mistake and I should never have married him, and then later everything dawns bright and clear, and I know I did the right thing. My job will be the worst job in the world, and then it'll be great. Same with family, friends and just about anything I'm involved with. Feel free to weigh in on this and let me know what you think. Does anyone else go through this see-saw of outlooks?

Sometimes I do, but I think it's just because of all my stupid thoughts and sometimes hormones. I find when I'm down praying helps. One thing I know is God will never fail me, like everybody else.

Hi K8e. From a personal point of view, I would heartily recommend seeing a psychiatrist who can prescribe medication for depression.

Why even spend the odd day in a depressed mood when, with medication, you can feel great 100% of the time?
