Default sadness without reason..

Often I feel this. This aching pain in the heart that comes for no reason at all. A want to cry but inability to.

When I think about it, I'm okay with life now.. even though I didn't achieve some of the things I wanted. So I find that the sadness came without reason. And then led to frustration, led to cutting, led to feeling worthless, and now sui thoughts.

The other day I told T this and T went "then why are you here then? When there is no stressors or triggers?" I was quite taken aback.. quite offended... I felt like I wasn't understood. I don't know.. I'm wondering why did T say that.. when she knows me alot more.. we did a DASS 21 previously and my depressive symptoms was still severe even though everything else in my life was okay. I thought she knew...

Anyway anyone else has this sadness without reason? *sigh*

(I guess I'm really annoyed and affected by T...)

I would also be annoyed. An experienced therapist, hearing there are no overt triggers for the emergence of difficult emotions, should at least consider the possibility of hidden ones and work with the patient to uncover them.

I'm sorry, HTN.

I'm sorry you are having such a tough time. I, too, suffer from depression. I'm diagnosed as bipolar but I'm beginning to wonder why, since all I feel is the deep emptiness of depression. Haven't been manic in so long I don't remember how it felt. I have been where you are and thank goodness I'm not that bad right now, so I can say things can get better. I hope you get some relief soon. I don't understand your counselor at all. There are always stressors for us. Some or just worse than others.
Wishing you well.

Your T comment is inappropriate at least, so sorry you had to hear that! I have been sad without apparent reason. My psychiatrist said that hormonal processes could trigger sadness sometimes. I do not have a psychiatrist right now and I am struggling to get one. I just cannot do it
