A 33-year-old female asked:

Every while i get feelings of unexplained deep sadness &crying every time when i am alone. sometimes these feelings develop to feelings that i am unworthy, ugly &wishing myself dead. i dont know if it is just sadness or depression?

Get this evaluated: Your description concerns me, and I urge you to hold on and seek help ASAP. Find a psychologist or psychiatrist. This appears not to be a temporary sadness, but rather a depressive state. This can be managed and reversed. Do NOT give up. If helpful, you could go to our paid site, and have a virtual consult via telemedicine.
