I keep waking up in the middle of the night depressed. I guess I nap too much during the day? It’s annoying because I don’t want to wake my family but I don’t want to be alone either. So here I am online instead.

Hey Butterfly88. I wake up frequently in the night too, usually I grab a book and try and read something. Easier said than done when your are depressed, but you might find the book a distraction to you...?

Hope you get a full night's sleep soon. Daytime sucks when you are tired.

Hi Lee, yeah I think reading might be good. Thanks!

I have to agree, reading helps to take the mind away from whatever is bothering you (sadly there's no on/off switch for depression, but distractions can help!), so a good book can go a long way!
