I think it is possible for no real reason but usually if I search I can find the trigger. Typical ones include: anniversaries of things -- death of a loved one, birthdays even the anniversary of another bout of depression. Sometimes music is a trigger for me, an old song brings up stuff (The Night Chicago Died is one for such a weird reason)or TV talk shows.
Sometimes I'll just let myself wander over a past therapy session and find myself flooded with feelings. Other physical stressors include being tired, not eating right, eating too much, pms or a cold coming on.
I hope you find the answer and this bout is short lived.
Let us know how you are doing.
