    I feel like I'm depressed only when I can't order the food I want

    But when I'm gambling I feel warm and fuzzy and I want to order the wrong food on purpose does that make me bi polar or specia

    Biggie, are you having those thoughts because you are in over your head and can't stop or what? I actually find gambling as an out this year. I broke up with my girlfriend of 5 years and I find it refreshing to be out of the loop. I guess to each their own but I have to think something else has to be going on because many of the things you are describing is some serious shit

    A major depressive disorder is likely to occur in 76 percent of pathologic gamblers, with recurrent depressive episodes likely to occur in 28 percent of pathologic gamblers. Because of this high correlation, the coexistence of depression and gambling may help discriminate pathologic from nonpathologic gambling; however, the severity of depression does not correlate with the amount of money spent on gambling.5 Suicide risk is also high in pathologic gamblersóLas Vegas, Nev., and Atlantic City, N.J., have some of the highest suicide rates in the nation.6
