I tend to breakdown every few months when the pressure of being lonely and thinking about my indifferent father and his family and how people ignore me and just everything I'm ashamed of myself gets too much that I bang doors or throw things and lock myself in my room for a few days.

Hey, myserioussoul, here I go again replying to another one of your posts lol!

I recently went clubbing and it made me suicidal afterwards. I never actually used to have suicidal thoughts after clubbing, but the whole scene now makes me feel gross. It's so bad. I'm not sure if this counts as 'breaking down', but I just feel like absolute crap. I totally understand what you mean though... I just really don't know if I can find happiness. Screw everything.

Every few months I tend to get very depressed and need a day or two off work then I am a bit better and can carry on (just about). My breakdowns don't happen quite so often as they used to, but they still happen.

I have ups and downs every few weeks. I'll have a good run of a week or two and then breakdown again.

The longest run I've had was a few months last year. It was almost six months of no bull****, very little anxiety, and hardly any depression.

While I do tend to get depressed and lonely a lot I don't break down that much. There are a lot of times I want to but I am afraid people will hear me or see me breaking down and I would not be able to deal with that. I keep everything inside hardly ever letting it out.

It varies greatly, I can go months without, or I can have , 3/4 per week.

Not as much as I used to. I recently had once in late November; took 3 days off school and work to get away a bit.

I think It's not time dependent. Tear drops when I get way too much emotional or after going through unimaginable difficult situations. Happened to me twice in last six months.

At least one major breakdown a month. It sort of like builds up over time unconsciously. Or consciously. Or after I've been in a SA-inducing situation like going to the mall.

I don't. Delayed emotional reactions to everything help keep me in check :yes. Last it happened was in February, and I vowed not to let it happen again...

Almost every time something frustrates me I break down crying and wanting to scream and destroy things...it can be, and usually is, something as relatively minor as my Internet connection acting up. I just can't tolerate frustration and things being beyond my control, things that SHOULD be able to be controlled. (I don't care that in the contract it says they can't guarantee perfect service! If you're paying over $50 a month for wireless Internet, they COULD get it working better! :mum ) It just infuriates me no end. I used to scream and hit myself but now I can't, merely because I'm sitting in the same room as my parents and they tend to not like it when I freak out like that...my crying and yelling is bad enough.

A true breakdown though? I don't think I've ever had one of those...yet. Not saying I haven't come close. I guess it depends what one's definition of a "breakdown" is; according to my definition, I haven't yet hit that point.

Somebody above used the term "meltdown"...that more aptly describes what I go through.

I can't remember the last time I broke down and cried. I usually break down by panicking. I talk really fast and loud, and I lose my breath. I do this very often. It makes me want to cry, but I never do.
