Im depressed, dysthymia is what my therapist has recent called it.
A mild but long-term form of depression.
Dysthymia is defined as a low mood occurring for at least two years, along with at least two other symptoms of depression.
Although it doesn't always feel mild but my everyday it like it just on this mild repeat. I started seeing a therapistearlier this year to really try to make progress as I have been dealing with this and anxiety since I was pretty young.
My actual question being do other people feel their mood changing? Do you feel the mood drop coming? I do, sometimes the drops are worse than others and sometimes I can fight them off. Other time its like I sense the tidal wave coming and there nothing I can really do about it but wait it out.

I do feel the changes too. I feel dread but then just change my routine to suit it and help it.

Its not dread for me. It like a shift in my temperament and I start to feel more quiet. The way I describe it is like right before is start to rain and you feel the wind shift. I become more aware im in this state. Thing tend to upset me more, I have to urge to want to secluded myself. Then when I'm alone I get lost in all my thoughts. I try to avoid this, but it kinda depends on how bad it is this time.

I've been told for my migraines I need to establish and sceduale and I know I would do better mentally if I setup a new one. I know I thrive better off one but I kinda hate them. I feel like I'm constantly battling them for freedom. I know that sound weird.

I have chronic dysthymia too. It does make you feel low constantly with no energy to fight back. It's like it sucks the life out of you just enough to keep you down and struggling.
I live in a permanent low mood where sadness, emptiness and hopelessness are my ground zero. At least once a month my mood crashes further though. I feel it coming, butterflies in the belly, negative thoughts, tension etc but cannot stop it. When it hits me it's like a nervous breakdown. I literally have to give up for a few days and then try to rebuild my life just to get back to ground zero. It's a vicious cycle of which I've had no relief for upwards of 15years.

Everyone knows about mosquitos how they bite and suck the blood out of us .They are parasites they survive off of others . Well what if there were other parasites some we know of and some we don't know of ? There are parasites from the mass conscious (7 billion people's energy ) that is like a cloud over the earth that forms a magnet that can drain you of your energy .We all can feel the high energy from a busy city (London , New York ) when everyone is moving and grooving . Now what if everyone was locked down angry , in fear ? Just the opposite then ? Just as you put bug spray on going out into a mosquito filled backward so we must put " energy " protection on everyday to protect us from the mass consciousness .You can find out there what ever resonates with you positive affirmations , chanting , mantras , prayers .
