Anyone else get super emotional when they are tired?

I've been working nights and going off 2-3 hours of sleep. I am also going through alot with my ex, court suff and I'm super stressed. I have been emotional and just burst into tears sometimes, do you think I'm just tired and stressed or do you think it's depression? I'm usually a very happy person.

  • It could be a combination of both. I am wired for depression, and in order to maintain, I need to be eating well, sleeping enough, and getting some form of excercise.

  • That can definitely wear on you! I think when you're that tired, getting emotional is very normal. That said, watch for other symptoms of depression. Working nights isn't for everyone.

  • I would say a mixture of exhaustion and stress.

  • Ya I used to work nights all the time but that's before I had to take care of a kid by myself.
