I've suffered from depression my entire life. I'm going through a horrible divorce and custody battle right now. Surpisingly enought, I'm feeling less depressed than ever. I feel very alive, but I'm in a lot of pain. I remember going to my doctor's and the major questions pertaining to depression were related appetite and sleeping problems. I never suffered those symptoms. Now, I am suffering tremendously. My average caloric intake is 150 a day, and that's when I force myself to eat a piece of bread. At night, I sleep a total of four hours, waking up every thirty minutes only to wait another hour before falling back asleep, only to sleep for thirty minutes, etc. In my mind, I feel "less" depressed than I have ever felt before, but experience more symptoms. Should I go to a psychiatrist and get reevaluated for meds (currently on none)? Or should I leave it alone since I'm feeling "better"?
