Hi all...I suffer from very severe depression - my doctor said I am one of the most severe cases she's ever treated (or is TRYING to treat). Anyway, my lows are quite severe and they come and go...I never know when the depression's going to hit and once it hits, I don't know when the darkness will lift (but thankfully it always lifts). Anyway, yesterday my depression (which is not situational, it's a severe chemical imbalance) came out of nowhere. I was at work and the darkness took over and I had to leave the office because I was completely incapacitated. For about 2 hours I thought I was losing my mind...I could not think, couldn't speak, couldn't do anything. I don't even remember the drive home...it was awful and thankfully the worst of it passed within a couple of hours. The only thing I remember was feeling intense pressure between my ears. Anybody else here experience severe lows like this?
