Hypophrenia: A vague feeling of sadness, seemingly without cause.

Have you ever been doing something completely normal, and then a wave of sadness hits you out of nowhere? You don’t know why, but you feel so sad and depressed all of a sudden. You think talking to people will help, but it doesn’t, not really. You try to talk to a few people, but as soon as you start talking to them, you realize that you don’t really want to. You realize that you don’t actually care about anything.

There’s this gloomy cloud hanging over your head, and the sunshine seems so far away. You lose interest in everything, even the things you used to love doing so much. You feel like sleeping all the time, you feel so tired. You lie down and close your eyes, thinking you can just sleep it off, but sleep chooses that moment to play hide-and-seek with you. Its SO close, but still not close enough. Sleep is just out of reach. And your brain chooses that moment to replay every memory of you getting hurt. And, before you know it, you’re crying and you don’t even know why it all began.

  2. Tell. Me. About. It.
    People wake up from nightmares, and they are all relieved, and shiz. But, at times, I feel as if I’ve woken up into this nightmare, and there’s just NO way out. You know, sometimes, I really wish that life would come with a trapdoor. So, people won’t have to see me like THIS. I’m not weak, and I just HATE it when circumstances make me feel so. -infinite sigh-

  3. OML!!! There’s actually a name for it.

    And your brain chooses that moment to replay every memory of you getting hurt. And, before you know it, you’re crying and you don’t even know why it all began. Just made me sigh right out loud.

    You have my sympathy if you’re going through a bout of it. I SO get it!

  4. I know I’ve felt like this, where to go anything, even dragging yourself out of bed takes enormous energy, hopefully it shall pass, or at least quite down. It reminds me of a post of have coming up this coming Sunday, a word, like Hypophrenia but describes myself sometimes too a T, weird isn’t it that although β€œwe” sometimes feel totally crap there is beauty in a word to describe feeling bad?

  5. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced that. Have you been experiencing this? I’ve experienced depression, but never the all-of-a-sudden sadness feeling.
    Are you ok? Hope you are well.

  6. yeah, I think I have been there. I think though, sometimes, when you’re looking for an answer to “why the hell did I just get washed by this wave of sorrow”, your mind plays tricks on you and reaches out to find any thing in it that could possibly cause sadness and amplifies it to the degree that makes it seem fitting to the wave that overcame you.
    Meaning, of course, that it isn’t the actual reason, and maybe there isn’t an actual reason or there is – but minds are such illogical jerks sometimes…

  7. I know right? I have literally experienced this. It’s always out of nowhere, you get a sense of sadness and all you want to do is to wallow, to cry. There is no pain, just some kind of illusion where you are unable to get out of this big ball of sadness, you are trapped.

  8. Yeah this phenomenon was explained very clearly in the movie “Inside Out”.. Haha I know it’s all fictitious, but I like believing these mood swings are because of some tiny people living in my head πŸ˜›

  9. This is one of the symptoms that people with complex post traumatic stress disorder have.
    Unhealed emotional wounds can be triggered at any time.

    It feels like the emotions and sensations are coming out of nowhere and are some kind of brain malfunction but it can be an emotional flashback to abuse or trauma from an age that was very young.

    The memories from ages 0 to 3 years old are not stored with language and words. Even memories from ages 3 to 5 are not processes the same way as when the language skills were more developed.

    It is hard to integrate early trauma in any conventional therapy. NLP hypnosis can help though.

    So you are not crazy when this happens to you. It probably has to do with how your brain stored events that emotionally wounded you.

    Wishing you peace of mind,
    Much love,
