Why my Depression worse mornings, eases in evening

Posted by Mtom on October 10, 2016, at 10:43:51

There is a very distinctive pattern in this bout of depression I'm currently experiencing. Mornings are particularly bad. I awake feeling mildly depressed, but it quickly intensifies over the next, say, 1/2 hour. This intensity lasts maybe a couple of hours. Through the day it subsides to, varyingly, a lesser or greater extent.

By about mid to late evening the depression, while not "gone", is significantly milder.

I go to bed and the cycle is the same the next day.

I am not taking antidepressants. I've tried several and cannot tolerate them, am hypersensitive to their effects. Even supplements which impact neurotransmitter activity are not tolerable. So, I've done several CT sessions, a group Mindfulness program, Omega-3's and B Vitamins.

Any insights into this diurnal swing would be of great interest.
