Does anyone feel like when they are in good spirits, they are unable to recall ever feeling low, and vice versa? Like a very poor or selective memory. Makes it very difficult to assess growth or judge severity of depressive moods.

I lied I have another question....

Do you think impulsivity is a good or bad thing? I keep getting these strong urges to take off and do something crazy...live at hostels for a year or travel around Europe. But I wouldn't want to do it unless it was a longterm life change. Otherwise it wouldn't be worth it...wouldn't be an energizing enough endevor for me to take on.

I know impulsivity is generally viewed as a bad thing if you are depressed...but why? Seems like a genius way to feel alive again. Even if it is scary....at least you are learning, growing...at least you will not be numb anymore.

OK i am done posting now I promise :)

1. Yes, totally, you describe exactly how I feel. Also, whatever mood I'm in, it feels like it'll never end.

2.I don't know. As long as it is a sensible idea then I think it's great. It's not so good if your impulse is to hurt yourself. I like to plan everything way in advance, but I'm told that I'm quite impulse too.
