Triggers :/

What do you have as a trigger? I mean there is a such thing when it comes to depression right?? For me it could be the darkness or just nothing.  9 out 10 times it is for no good reason.

For me it is gloomy weather.  Today I had a total meltdown because my comptuer  was acting up.  Alot of times it is for nothing.  On the other hand, I do have moments of joy and beauty.  You are normal.  For us, it is just unfair that we cannot maintain a consistent level of at least functioning.

I'm not sure if this is considered a trigger or not, but for me things are worst when I'm at home by myself and don't have a lot that needs to be done.  Basically, whenever the busy-ness of life stops, then I feel the depression because nothing is covering it up.

another thing: it can be triggered by someone saying something to me that I interpret negatively/take as an insult or hurtful comment

 I'm still trying to figure out exactly what my triggers are. They seem to come out of nowhere
