I have been a bit depressed this week. I wonder if it correlates with my cycle- this time it started on day 1. Just when I am so happy that I forget what it is like to be depressed, it happens again to remind me. Really little things can set me off- a rude salesperson, heavy traffic... And then my unhappiness is so deep that I can't imagine it ever ending. (I do still go to work and behave more-or-less normal, except that I cry at the drop of a hat.)
But I snapped out of it yesterday, so I am back to my normal self again. Great!

I hate that feeling of neverending unhappiness. I'm glad you're feeling better.

I notice a very big hormonal contribution to depression - the last ~3 days before, and the first and maybe second day of, my period I am very, very down. Then I get kind of angry, and then my hormones stabilize and I feel better and maybe even optimistic again.

As a person who's been through decades of chronic depression, the only thing that holds me together through the worst parts is knowing how distorted your rationale is during periods of great depression, and also that there are always better days to come.

Glad you are feeling better too.
